What Inspires Guillemots Then?

Guillemots preside over the latest 'Back to Mine' compilation.

Featured Artists: Bjork  Four Tet  Guillemots  Joan as Police Woman  Liars  Sonic Youth 

Guillemots combine indie pop with a certain traditional sound of folk, jazz and general obscurity, so it's no surprise that they've been approached to provide the tracklisting for the latest 'Back to Mine' compilation. They also boast a leader who is the spit of our own Chris Jones - but does his musical taste compare to that of his lookalike?

The collection takes us from the lo-fi alt-rock of Sonic Youth, through the strong female vocals of Bjork and Joan Wasser to the double edged avant garde blade of Charles Mingus and Liars. All in all an engaging compilation.
