Limited vinyl LP pressing. Mint Records and CiTR 101.9FM have partnered up once again to release the fourth edition of this compilation series, with 11 songs from Vancouverâs freshest acts. Itâs the newest chapter in a lengthy story of partnership between Mint and CiTR. Side A opens with Ora Coganâs surreal âMoveâ, from her acclaimed EP Crystallize. Track twoâs a retro thrill from the The Shilohs, âDo the Modernâ, off of their tape Empress Stars. The rest of Side A charts an excited path through Vancouver post-punk: with exclusive tracks from Genderdog (RIP) and newly-formed trio Jerk Jails, along with Poor Formsâ 2014 single âJulyâ. It fades out with a special treat: Cult Babiesâ tribute to Lauren Smith of Tough Age, âSister Thirteenâ, exclusive to Pop Alliance Vol. 4. Side B expands the boundaries of pop further, opening with two haunting electronic-experimental melanges: Mourning Coupâs âBurn One for the Saintsâ from Baby Blue, and Stefana Fratilaâs âHomelandâ off of Efemera. Two ecstatic meshes of indie rock and shoegaze noise follow with Late Springsâ âDrink Youâ, from their 2015 debut, and an exclusive track from Ace Martens, âHidingâ. Closing out the fourth Pop Alliance is a meditation from minimalviolence, the exclusive track âBody as Landscapeâ.
