Omnivore Recordings and The International Pop Overthrow Music Festival are proud to present IPO Volume 23, a three-disc compilation featuring 68 tracks by artists from all over the world who have played the International Pop Overthrow festival, along with some who haven’t—at least, not yet! The IPO compilations go back as far as the festival, to 1998 when Vol. 1 was a single disc. Since then, the collection expanded to two discs the following year, and then three discs in 2002 for Volume 5, and it has remained a three-disc set through 2022. IPO Volume 23 showcases artists from across the globe, doing just about every sub-genre of pop music, including power pop, pop/rock, folk/pop, psychedelic pop, garage, indie-rock, modern rock, etc., making it one of the most well-rounded compilations available to the general public.
Although the International Pop Overthrow festival is essentially a showcase for unsigned bands, the compilations have featured signed acts including Jason Falkner (Jellyfish, Beck), Brendan Benson (The Raconteurs), Roger Joseph Manning, Jr. (Jellyfish, Beck), Peter Holsapple (The dB’s), Marvin Etzioni (Lone Justice), and Shoes. This year’s release includes selections from April March, The Rave-Ups, and The Loud Family (Scott Miller’s post-Game Theory band) and Anton Barbeau.
When mainstream pop/rock fans are played any volume of the IPO compilations, their first response is invariably, “This is great—I had no idea people were still making music like this!” Well, they certainly are, and you can find some of the best examples of it on International Pop Overthrow Volume 23!
