Keith Sonin So many great local artists collected here for the first time since the quarantine began, and all for such a low low price! It really restores your faith in the restorative healing power of the sounds of a community of musicians, recorders, performers, and whatever the hell 'arbitrary labor' is. That thing is WEIRD.

    The 518 Covid Quarantine Compilation is a collection of recordings made by local musicians (those who live, perform, or come from the 518 Capital District of New York) during the 2020 Covid19 Quarantine period as a benefit for charity. All proceeds after bandcamp fees will go to Direct Relief (https://www.directrelief.org/), an international humanitarian aid organization that has been working diligently to get protective equipment and medications to healthcare facilities and workers in the fight against COVID19. The idea for the compilation came from viewing many local musicians making and sharing great recordings while quarantined. In order to showcase their work, bring together the 'best of the best', get the music exposure, and do good work for charity all at once, the idea for this compilation seemed like a no-brainer win/win/win. Hoepfully it will inspire others across the Region and the country, giving them a great, productive thing to do while they're quarantined at home that makes use of their talents . Please give it a listen and, if you're able, make a donation! ... more

Stay Home You lay under my roof You'll stay until there's proof It's safe to venture out Don't pay attention to what that fool is on about
Here I come to take everything away from you Sign the papers so I can suck you dry In the corner, paranoid They're coming for me Let me open the door Terrible protector Taking away all my joy "Who are you, I don't remember I've been trapped here since December Please don't leave I need you now. Ruin my life for one more night." Here I stay Keep you safe from the world outside Sign the papers so you can suck me dry Every day I try to help you hold on to yourself But I can feel our hands are slipping In the corner, paranoid They're coming for me Let me open the door Terrible protector Taking away all my joy "Who are you, I don't remember I've been trapped here since December Please don't leave I need you here. Ruin my life for one more night."
Awkward white girls can find a mate at the indie rock show They're not all losers now but most of them boozers Some of them will grow up to be engineers And you can be their prom queen just wear your most punk rock jeans Your jacket says working class that purse hanging on your ass Says I study graphic arts my daddy pays off my cards These are your wild years and they're lots of fun But cover your legs just slightly indie rock might have herpes! I took my anbesol but haven't been kissed at all I run the message board I'm handy with virtual swords I can make you a healthy vegan souffle Weened on Nirvana but I'm studying my Fugazi! I'm kinda creepy but your parents will love me Because I'm one of all of you middle class through and through I know to wear a button down over my joy division tee Wait till the show begins to start smoking pot again! My roommate's band is playing some wretched hole downtown Tonight we can skip it cause we totally did it Found our awkward nerdy soulmate for the next couple months at least So no more sad sourpuss no more indie rock for us!
