International Pop Overthrow: Volume 21
Release date: September 21, 2018
Latest in the long-running International Pop Overthrow series.
Omnivore Recordings and The International Pop Overthrow Music Festival are proud to present IPO Vol. 21, a three-disc compilation featuring 69 tracks by artists from all over the world who have played the International Pop Overthrow festival…along with some who haven’t.
The IPO compilation goes back as far as the festival, to 1998 when Volume 1 was a single disc. Since then, the comp had 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 2018. IPO Volume 21 showcases artists from 13 different countries, 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 compilation has featured some signed acts, and some who have gone on to be signed. These include:
Among those acts on Vol. 21 to watch out for include:
When mainstream pop/rock fans are played any volume of the IPO compilation, 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 IPO Volume 21!
