Crystal Magic Records is humbled to present to you CRITICAL HITS 2012 a compilation of astonishing music from across the broad CMR catalog. Crystal Magic has laboured dilbert-desktop-bound throughout the year to bring you the best New Zealand bedroom-produced CYBER-PSYCHEDELICA/BUBBLEGUM-POP/SLACKER-INDIE-ROCK/SENSUAL-SYNTH-WAVE/MISC-COOL-STUFF and WHATEVER.
CMR is a DIY label, all the artists represented on this disk are talented NEW-MULTIMEDIA artisans crafting their songs, videos and associated imagery themselves or in loose collaboration with their ON-LINE pals. We are the experimental end-result of a post-scarce information-ecology and thanks to HIGHER DATA RATES we have no shortage of virtual-reference-material, no need to drift our gaze too far from our screens or venture too far from our inner worlds. From our hearts and minds straight to YOU!
CRITICAL HITS 2012 is a sonic journey through the year that was, a sampler of audio-warez from across New Zealand and THE INTERNET. Thanks for taking this journey with us, and with millennial-end-times pending we’ll hope to see you in 2013 for more AWESOME MUSIC. <3
released 14 December 2012
