'HTOYL&GROC is an invasion into each of the deeply peculiar worlds the songs contain - hacking paths into dense jungles - looting the riches. There's something almost perverse about pushing these clandestine pieces out into the world, but the opportunity to do so is one too good to miss.

Memorials of Distinction was thought up in order to present the work of the artists compiled here, all of whom seem to be creating material under the presumption that almost no one will hear it.
It's an honour to play a part in making that presumption wrong.

In order of appearance:

Sofia DeVille's epic dark pop, allegedly straight out of a magical forest in Sweden, is as menacing as it is beautiful. One of three acts on the compilation I've never met in person, she is a complete mystery to me. I literally can't comprehend how she makes music this good, or why she hasn't been snapped up by a proper indie label yet. I can only thank the heavens that Memorials of Distinction got its hands on her overcast, mystical spells first.

Smiling Disease is a cult obsession waiting to be found. His homemade, lusciously constructed suites draw the line between shoegaze, goth, trip-pop and some kind of lost Damon Albarn/Beck project. One of my all-time-favourite artists, every guitar riff, every stolen snatch of a lyric, is golden. Rumoured to have all been recorded through an old skype microphone into Audacity, he has a backlog of 5 or so unreleased albums that have intermittently been put online under a number of aliases, including Earth Warp and In Practice.

Mewlips is yet another mystery to me. As far as I can tell, he's a long-haired freak from some suburb in California. He raps his way around a weird world, spitting his messed up, surreal outlook all over ethereal beats. He sometimes reminds me of Modest Mouse. Like all the best rappers, each track he puts out gives you a tiny window into his brain. Peeking inside is oddly addictive, and the voyeuristic pleasure comes in droves.

Mad Kid Library Trap is more than a music project: it's the outpouring of one of the most effortlessly subversive artists I've come into contact with. Few people are as uncomfortable in this world as the Mad Kid, and he'll force you inside his personal hell. His methods are unorthodox, but his output carries a hefty emotional weight. One that is sometimes almost too much to handle. A musician only for those listeners who are prepared to try.

Lizzard Bleach are the only real band on the compilation, and are the only act to have played a real show in front of real people. Despite these drawbacks, they write perfectly ramshackle songs with enough hooks to haunt you to the grave. They're also possibly the laziest band I have ever come across, only convening to break a practice room around 5 times a year. The live cuts on this compilation show you that it doesn't hold them back one bit.

Porridge Radio has been crafting emotional psychedelic lofi vomit music for a few years, but has recently perfected that craft to a T. Hypnotic and raw, there is an element of honesty and pathos present in her music that serves a foolproof antidote to the real world. She sings, she shouts, she breaks the internal microphone on her laptop. What more could you want? A demented homage to Neil Young? A beautiful song about periods? You got it.

Estamos Fritos, which literally means "We Are Fried", is a bedroom project from Mexico. The only non-Anglophone act on the compilation, he floats around like a stoned ghost: chilling in two senses of the word. His songs sound like the kind of elusive, spontaneous jam with friends that loses all its magic when recorded or attemptedly played again. Somehow, Estamos Fritos's recordings sound like the haphazardly fresh, fleetingly original brilliance every single time.

sAtAnic rituAl Abuse is my project, paling in comparison with the other contributions and generally making me feel like an idiot.

Lovingly compiled and assembled for a super limited, super DIY tape.'
