Released to coincide with Ripple Music's 2018 SXSW showcase, a number of these bands have gained real traction in the ensuing months. The legendary swampy heavy rock of Wo Fat needs no introduction and is well represented here. As is the furious hard-rock of Mothership, whose real star is their lead guitarist -- some awesome soloing on display. Elsewhere, The Watchers and Steak show the abundance of talent on the Ripple roster, with this sampler barely scratching the surface.
Favorite track: Riffborn.
