PRESS (from previous compilations)

WILD ANGELS

“Being that this is Girlsville, you know you’re getting a really awesome mix of garage trash, girl bands, ’60s/Brit Invasion worship, and straight-up rippin’ punk. And there’s no filler to be found!”
FASTER and LOUDER

“The Prissteens also feature on a killer compilation put out by Girlsville entitled ‘The Wild Angels’ stumping up some gloriously frazzled garage beat a la The Go Go’s gone real bad with the immensely spiked and unruly ‘I’m a Mess’. The set also finds The Primitives nailing a superb cover of the Aislers Set’s ‘Been Hiding’ and hooking up to it their trademark candy coated shimmer toned dayglo’d bubblegrooving. Elsewhere, long time no hear, Mr. Airplane Man who if memory serves me right, last appeared in these pages courtesy of an outrageously cool full length for – was Estrus or Sympathy way back in the early noughties are found here dropping the darkly weaving spell crafting psych mystic ‘Over That Hill’ while Purple Wizard serve up the seductively slinky Shangri-Las-esque ‘Putty’.”
THE SUNDAY EXPERIENCE

Compilation of the Year: Various Artists: The Wild Angels (Girlsville)
“Released for International Cassette Day, this 10-song comp from Girlsville features a great mix of heavy-hitters (Black Time, Mr. Airplane Man), up-and-comers (City Slang, Murph and the Gazorpos), and gone-but-not-forgotten garage greats (Purple Wizard, The Prissteens) – plus a previously unreleased Aislers Set cover from The Primitives! A great showcase for one of the best labels going.”

STUPID PUNK BOY

“Stupid Punk Boy: Compilation of the Year”
HEATWAVE MAGAZINE

“Some of the standout tracks for me include the ETTES, COACHWHIPS, COMMISERATIONS, the HIPSHAKES and PROTO IDIOT. They’re standouts because they’re more frantic, teetering on the edge of explosive, new wave-y with an edge or just unforgettable (which is a hard trait to come by these days). There’s nothing on the entire compilation that is even close to garbage. If you’re a fan of garage and new wave-style punk, you want to be tracking this one down. In a genre that usually prides itself on not giving a shit about anything, it’s more than refreshing to see that this release benefts the TransLife Center of Chicago, which is an organization that supports transgender individuals in fnding housing, legal support and employment.”
