VA - Southeast of Saturn + Southeast of Saturn, Vol. 2 [2020 - 2022] (2 x CDs)

DREAM POP/SHOEGAZE/SPACE ROCK

VA - Southeast of Saturn + Southeast of Saturn, Vol. 2 [2020 - 2022] (2 x CDs)

Third Man Records 2020’s Southeast of Saturn and 2022's Southeast of Saturn Vol. 2, is a collection of music from Detroit’s space-rock/shoegaze/dream pop scene of the ‘90s. 

The music of Southeast of Saturn did not arise organically from metro Detroit's fertile soil. Locally, garage-rock, goth-rock, neo-hippie groups, and the usual preponderance of adequate bar bands dominated the landscape. Thirsty Forest Animals guitarist Andrew Peters summarizes the prevalent attitude among the Motor City's space-rock contingent: "I don't think we really noticed the local Detroit scene earlier on. We were more into the bands you would see in the NME / Melody Maker, zines, and records - mostly from the UK - on the walls at Play It Again". If anything was a major factor locally, it was Play It Again, the independent record store in the suburbs of Detroit that nurtured the scene with it's amazing curation of imports and killer used records picked up on owner Alan Kovan's British record buying trips. The second volume expands upon the Michigan-centric aural delights purveyed on Vol. 1, by including groups from throughout the Midwest. Highlighting groups spanning Michigan, Ohio, Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin, and Minnesota, Vol. 2 works to cement the Midwest's status as a breeding ground for the space-rock and shoegaze subgenres, which more famously burgeoned in the UK. There are no big names or crossover artists on these two CDs however, for those who know that digging deep in the real and virtual record bins yields the greatest rewards. Third Man Records was smart enough to gather some of the great music from Detroit's Space-Rock era. This album is a must have for anyone who lived during that movement, or if you simply want to zone out.  Third Man Records was smart enough to gather some of the great music from Detroit's Space-Rock era.
