A group of engineering students who are passionate about music? The mere notion seems incongruous, like, say, a group of accountants forming an art appreciation club and then getting together periodically to discuss the works of Van Gogh and Michaelangelo. Nonetheless, that's exactly the basis for Something Like Sound, a blog launched by the staff of the Colorado School of Mines newspaper, the Oredigger. Frequently updated, Something Like Sound has steadily become a trusted resource when it comes to local music. Bolstering its coverage even further, the blog has put together a local-centric music comp that will be available for download beginning tomorrow. The eleven-track collection, titled Colorado Sounds, features previously released songs from The Photo Atlas, Young Coyotes, Houses and Hello Kavita, among others. Beyond the digital comp, the blog also plans to handcraft more than 200 cassette mixtape versions of the comp. See the artwork and full track list after the jump.
