Sky Girl is a sentimental journey through folk-pop, new wave and art music micro presses that spans 1961-1991, pieced together by the elite ears of French collectors DJ Sundae and Julien Dechery. From Warfield Spillers' modern soul to Karen Marks’ icy Oz-wave, the charming DIY storytelling of Italian-American go-getter Joe Tossini and the proto-Sarah Records dream pop of Gary Davenport, it resonates on a wide spectrum historically, geographically and stylistically, uniting in a singular, longing, almost intangible ambience. Enriched with artwork from Perks and Mini mutant Misha Hollenbach, sleeve notes courtesy of Ivan Smagghe and a download code for the road.
