"Marriage Records offer a second compilation documenting the rude health of this Portland, OR based community. The first noticeable difference between this collection and the previous compilation from 2004 is the extra disk. Marriage have grown up, cherishing the artists it set up to serve while welcoming new voices into their crucial discussion. Disc one represents the more psychedelic elements of the Marriage stable; the windy tones of the opening track by Privacy, the purple wash of Adam Forkner's White Rainbow and the scaling folk of Adrian Orange all sound different but somehow make sense in their shared home at Marriage. Disc two stands as a testament to the open philosophy of the Marriage family; The Watery Graves' lounge-punk homage to Portland shares a journey with the enigmatic figure of Rob Walmart and his warped hip-hop jams. This is a collection of people who collaborate and support one another through art and are excited to share their work with the rest of the world. The outcome is joyous and essential."
