Follow The Sun Compilation Vinyl

'Follow The Sun' compiles cuts dug from dusty bins by Mikey Young (Total Control, Eddy Current Suppression Ring) and Keith Abrahamsson (Founder / Head of A&R at Anthology Recordings and Mexican Summer) surveying the sought after sound of Australia's lesser - and greater - known moments of '70s rock, folk, and their in-between offspring.

'Follow The Sun' filters the sublime and sometimes subversive psychedelic airwaves transmitted around the world from America's terrestrial platforms during the golden age of gentle, exploratory FM through a distinctly Australian lens. Follow The Sun does not represent those Australian acts who produced a number one single leading to international fame and fortune.

Some of the artists on the compilation never even made the local hit parade. But the fact that many of these artists didn't enjoy chart success is secondary; these artists represent the consciousness of their time. The scuffed shuffle of Mata Hari's "Easy" drastically contrasts the loner vibes of Gary Shearston's "Witnessing," while Megan Sue Hicks "Hey, Can You Come Out And Play" hypnotizes a la Shocking Blue and Trevor McNamara's "Country Corn" spins out like a rural Skip Spence tune.

Hailing from distant, disparate cities across the wide Australian map, each of these artists represent distinct, different forms of pop music
