The Illinois-based Polyvinyl Record Co., once one of the key emo labels with releases by Braid, Kerosene 454 and Radio Flyer, is now part of indie rock's surprising resurgence, as bands such as Of Montreal, Ida, Rainer Maria, Matt Pond PA and Saturday Looks Good to Me have all found success with remarkably well-constructed pop records. This collection of recent Polyvinyl tracks includes material from their new wave of talent.
