AntiFolk Comps Landing

AntiFolk is an attitude that has been cooking for some 15 years now, simmering in a cauldron on the Lower East Side of NYC. Ever since we first heard of it we’ve been waiting for the almost mythical compilation collections to appear. Major Matt Mason USA has been braising his over a medium grill for a while now – Rough Trade have been oven roasting theirs in a brick fired kiln for around 18 months.

Living in the shadows of the grand tradition of David Peel & The Lower East Side. Have a marijuana, anyone?
