Approved: Various Artists – Garage Swim

CMU Approved

Doing what it says on the tin, ‘Garage Swim’ dips into the dark and slightly dirty depths of is genre fix, starting with BDOD’s battle-scarred ‘Dregs’, and closing to the dreamtime static of Weekend’s ‘Teal Kia’.

Take a pay-nothing ‘Garage Swim’ today via SoundCloud:
