    Susstone Compilation: Where Will We Go?


    From Minneapolis label Susstones Records comes Where Will We Go?, a compilation featuring relatively obscure Midwest groups with a penchant for the Mod scene of yore and the electronic scene of the present. As far as compilations go, this one isn’t bad. What it lacks in sonic unity it makes up for in good music. “Where Will We Go?” by Astronaut Wife features Bjork-like vocal delivery, “Nothing” by Basement Apartment features that laid-back New York acoustic vibe, and “Oblivion and Points Beyond” by Sideways makes you want to strap on your Go-Go boots and hit the discotheque. Very few missteps, but a word of advice to the wise: If no one knows your song, don’t bother telling me it’s the “November mix.”
