Arts & Crafts: X by Various Artists on Apple Music

11 Songs

EDITORS’ NOTES

By introducing artists like Broken Social Scene, Feist, and Stars to the world, the Arts & Crafts label has become something of an indie-pop institution. To celebrate their 10th anniversary, Arts & Crafts decided to pair up their artists in sometimes unlikely partnerships to record a broad array of tracks. Some of the most immediately striking cuts here are unexpected covers, like the funky take on New Order’s “Bizarre Love Triangle” offered by Zeus and Apostle of Hustle, or the atmospheric, stately version of Duran Duran’s “The Chauffer” by The Hidden Cameras and Snowblink. Other highlights include Broken Social Scene and Years playing together on the spacious track “Day of the Kid” and the collaboration between Chilly Gonzalez and Stars on the piano-driven alt-pop stunner “Nothing Good Comes to Those Who Wait.” By combining some of the most familiar voices in indie pop, the compilation is a testament to the continuing vitality of the Arts & Crafts roster.
