As you probably already know, I've long been a big fan of rather obscure yet vibrant music scenes & locales. So with that in mind, it shouldn't be quite as surprising to hear that this is the sixth CD from an Indonesian band that I've released on the label! Back when I was first exploring the Indonesian indiepop scene in 2013, one of the first labels I traded with was HeyHo! Records, and one of that label's final releases in 2014 was the "College Friend" cdep from Aggi and the second I heard it, I was FLOORED, to say the least. I mean c'mon, three songs in under 4½ minutes that sounded exactly like vintage Henry's Dress?! How have I NOT found my new favorite band? Basically, they took the best of '90s noisy indiepop (Tiger Trap, Henry's Dress, Aislers Set) and added a dash of playful '00s Swedish tweepop (Free Loan Investments, Hormones In Abundance) to make some of the best noisy & thrilling crash-pop I've ever heard, that also had a good sense of humor (like, for example, how the singer does his best Stephen Pastel impression in a song called "Something Must Be Done")! Over their brief lifespan, Aggi only put out a few EPs (all of which were super-limited and long out of print) - but all ten songs they recorded are handily collected right here for the entire world to enjoy - and enjoy they shall
