If you're into classifying your hipsters, Ypsi is supposed to be where the enlightened ones live. Or something. Jokes aside, this burg-celebrating comp is an agreeable mix of folk (Annie Palmer), alt-country (Vailcode), deliciously manic metalcore (Coke Dick Motorcycle Awesome with "Ypsilanti Jaxxxy"), and fractured-pop home recordings (Leaving Rouge). Plenty of local color and paths to follow.
