VA - Worlds of Possibility, Domino's 10th Anniversary [2003] (2 x CD's)



VA - Worlds of Possibility, Domino's 10th Anniversary [2003] (2 x CD's)

Worlds Of Possibility is a compilation that celebrated 10 years of Domino back in 2003. 

Domino Recording Company or simply Domino is a British independent record label based in London. There is also a wing of the label based in Brooklyn, New York that handles releases in the United States, as well as a German division called Domino Deutschland and a French division called Domino France. In addition, Stephen Pastel presides over the subsidiary label Geographic Music, which releases more 'unusual' music from Britain and outside of the Western world. 

Worlds of Possibility is a great value celebration of Domino- one of the key indie labels now celebrating their 10th Anniversary! As with the earlier compilation The Hits Hurt, the title stems from a Pastels song - Worlds of Possibility is typically sublime, the missing link between Felt & MBV (why are The Pastels not revered in the UK). There have been some great samplers of late - the latest Loose one, At Least You Can Die with a Smile on Your Face (Bella Union), Infecting the Galaxy One Planet at a Time (Sub Pop),  but this is easily the best one: two packed CD's. This set gets you looking back over their past joys and also makes you look forward to the future ones- here's to another 10, another 20....several centuries of Domino. (Amazon)
