In the new issue of Louder Than War magazine (order here) online editor Sarah Lay chats with Fierce Panda head honcho Simon Williams about running one of indie’s most iconic record labels. To sit alongside we’re pleased to bring you an exclusive stream of the label’s latest compilation, Please Look After This Bear.
The sixteen track sampler, released digitally on 18 November, features artists and tracks from the label over the last year. While over the past fifteen years the label has been a home to the likes of Death Cab for Cutie, Idlewild, The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart, Art Brut and The Polyphonic Spree their current roster only upholds the calibre and eclecticism of their pickings in the melodic alt rock pop genres.
Please Look After This Bear shows this off at its finest, featuring tracks from Desperate Journalist, Coquin Migale, Raglans, Sean Grant and The Wolfgang, Ghost Suns and Surfer Blood.
