One of the lesser discussed perks to independent music is the independent record labels. And what is even less discussed is that most of them release compilation albums.
Selected by fans and artists alike, Red Dragon Records tallied the votes and released 1st Renaissance. The hour and a half, twenty-two track, compilation shatters expectations of the “indie norm” with bold tracks like “When The Sun Sets” by The Mouth of Ghosts, “They Said Tomorrow’s Gonna Be a Sunny Day” by the infectious Paradigms, the heartfelt “Rhyme for My Reason” from Daniel Anderson and VLAD’s “Gamma,” just to name a few (and we mean just a few).
1st Renaissance is a great source of discovery and a fantastic album in its own right. With a portion of the proceeds from the compilation album going to the artists we highly recommend you check this out and support independent music.
Red Dragon promises more and 1st Renaissance is just the beginning. This is a great step into their world and they are worth keeping an eye on. The world is a better place because of independent music like this and we must admit we can’t wait to hear more!
