Philadelphia’s premiere duo festival Two Piece Fest is approaching us rapidly. To get us in the mood for its tenth iteration, the festival’s organizers dropped a surprise compilation featuring this year’s twenty-two artists on Bandcamp.

This year’s lineup features some of the east coast’s best duos of all styles and all walks of life, coming together in a sort of rock and roll melting pot. Listening up and down this compilation finds Brooklyn’s GODXSS Joker-esque spoken word matched with simple reflection pieces from Philly’s The Afterglows and The Great Swamps, and even heavier material from Heavy Coughin and HIRS. They all fit together in a jigsaw puzzle of oddity, as each track prove this line up is the best it’s ever been.

Stream the compilation below, and find tickets to Two Piece Fest X (February 25th at First Unitarian Church) here.
