Sad About The Times

Sad About The Times Compilation News Post Image


An Exploration of 70s FM Folk, Soft Rock,
West Coast Jangle, Power Pop and Late Night Jams

There was a time when there was only so much room at the top, with limited alternatives to mainstream radio for a song to get heard. Every song on Sad About The Times could have been a hit, each with a different flavor, all subtly conveying universal emotions that are hard to describe but easy to feel.

Pre-Order Sad About The Times

Anthology Recordings’ latest compilation, curated by Mikey Young (Total Control / Eddy Suppression Ring) and Keith Abrahamsson (Founder / Head of A&R at Anthology Recordings), is a set of North American 70s jammers. These songs came in the wake of the psychedelic sixties after high-flying idealism ran its course, and singer-songwriters were ascendant.

Available on 2LP, CD, and digital, with artwork by Brian BlomerthSad About The Times is out on May 17.
