Tampa Bay indie label offers a worthy sampler of modern rock

No Lip Vol. 1

( )

Tampa Bay has a new indie label in town, and judging by its debut disc, No Lip Vol. 1, this is a venture worth getting excited about. The 13-track compilation features bands running the rock gamut: alternative, indie, punk, emo, power-pop, garage, screamo and Goth. Five of the bands are local: Soulfound, Adrift, Anareta, Knowing Stu and Drew Street Mary, all of which contribute winning numbers. The rest of the acts are from across the country and Canada, with the scrappy garage-rockers Pirate Love calling Norway home. 3.5 stars
