Indonesian DJ-slash-vinyl collector Bayu Aditya has curated an Australian indie-pop vinyl compilation titled I Won’t Have to Think about You.

The vinyl was produced in collaboration with Moopie, the founder of A Colourful Storm, a recording label based in Berlin and in Melbourne, Australia.

Slated for release on Nov. 17, I Won’t Have to Think about You comprises 12 rare Australian indie-pop, twee-pop, jangle-pop and dreampop tracks from 1982 to 2017.

Moopie told The Jakarta Post via email that Bayu was the one who came up with the idea to create the compilation, adding that it took them around one year and a half to complete the album.

Meanwhile, Bayu, who currently lives in Melbourne, said the compilation was his personal tribute to the genres featured on the album. He added that the styles of music were popular in his circles of friends during his high school time in Bandung, West Java.

Those keen to get their hands on the vinyl can order through the label’s website. (kes)
