    Let me know if you have any issues with the downloads listed above. I know this is a hefty amount of tracks but I did my best to pick most of my favorites from all the various compilations and albums I’ve released since 2003.

      Brandon: the link for Vol. 1 seems to be dead. Is it possible to re-post that compilation? Thanks in advance.

    • Brandon J. says:

      You are right, Vol. 1 is offline at the moment. It’s been up there since 2008 so maybe something happened to the original file. Sorry about that. I don’t know if I’ll be able to fix it.

    • Brian Currier says:

      Brandon, Thank you for the reply…I just recently discovered your website and frantically downloaded all I could find on it. I was just hoping that maybe that link could be quickly restored or resurrected. I understand completely the need to draw boundaries about what you can and cannot do with the kind of commitment-heavy project that this website is. Thank you for all of your efforts.

    • Brandon J. says:

      I’ll get it back up soon, I found the files :) either late tonight or tomorrow. Thanks for supporting us here at IVM.

    • I have Vol. 1 on my computer if that’d help anything. I’d be happy to email it

    Is this the same incomplete that did the split with Dogwood?

    Was definitely surprised to get the email about this! Amazing list, I remember getting a lot of the older compilations (like the first Best of IVM) and finding a ton of great music through them. It’s nice seeing most of those songs getting collected here. Blood & Water, Cathy Crescendo, Grave Robber, Phinehas, Beauti, Darkroom, and ForChristSake all were found through these, and all have some great songs on here.
    Won’t bother with this as I’ve been through it all before pretty much, but it’s a very nice compilation, thanks for it!

    What, no Falling UP? No Tim Be Told?

    Good, list, though. I am unfamiliar with several of the artists, so I look forward to hearing them. Now to just block out a few hours…
