Various Artists Imagine the Shapes
- Words: Robbie Mackey
- Label: What's Your Rupture
- XLR8R Rating: 7/10
Over the past year, What's Your Rupture has emerged as the little indie label that could-and kept could-ing. Clawing with the big boys and signing impeccably cool band after impeccably cool band, WYR has put together a glistening roster. Here's a spread of their labor-fruit: some C-86 worship from caUSE co-MOTION, a bit of The Long Blondes' Sheffield-bred, grrl-led "glamorous punk," the cagey, belly-grumbling indie pop of Love Is All, and Comet Gain's four-track sleekness. An impressive start for a little indie that won't be little for much longer.
