This album contains 21 songs by 14 independent bands from 4 countries. Various styles of music presented here might be called rock, pop, jazz, folk, avant garde and techno, but much of is not easily categorizable.||June and Novas is the official debut
release from Sweden's Moonbabies. It contains 14 songs and a couple
short hidden tracks as well. The CD includes a full-color 16-page CD-booklet
containing lyrics, photographs, and original artwork by Ola Frick of Moonbabies.

|"A splendid, schizophrenic
compilation, just the way we like it." -
"This latest release is one of the best I've yet come across & has definitely confirmed a new fan for at least one of the bands here. A couple, such as Bill Foreman & Moloch I've come across before & their contributions here are as usual, excellent.... Highlight for me here is the excellent selections from Swedish outfit Moonbabies, most notably the fabulous fuzz-pop of "Epileptic".. Great stuff all the way through & well worth seeing what's on the way from this label" - hEARd International Releases
the empty spots with their own inventiveness and a sense for infectious
pop melodies worth killing for. There is nothing in the wrong spot here;
everything is planned but still the outcome doesn't lack intensity and
creativity." - Broken Face Magazine
"They're not only diverse in the normal way (slow songs, fast songs, mid-tempo material), but sound like a different band each time they come to the plate. If I were to compare Carina's voice on each track of this record, I bet I'd come up with the name of a different female singer each time." -Splendid
