Great underground rock compilations – the D.C. hardcore classic Flex Your Head or the Eighties Homestead Records sampler The Wailing Ultimate – feel vibrantly alive. The 23 bands on this excellent anthology, a benefit for homeless advocates Rachel's Women's Center in Washington, D.C., Instagrams a vibrant, international basement punk scene. There's savage hardcore (total rippers from In School, Frau and the stellar Hysterics), maximum fist-pump (Roomrunner, Hive Bent's gripping "Tom Girl," Split Feet's hooky blur "Cat Mug on Secretaries Day") and careening noise rock (Fake Limb's chaotic live cover of Funkadelic's "Alice in My Fantasies," Clean Girls' bracing "First Day Out"). Play it $#%ing loud and hear your heart race.
