    Quirky indie rock/folk/pop/avant label Asthmatic Kitty's second compilation (their first was 2001's To Spirit Back the Mews) features more oddities from Wyoming. Bogs Visionary Orchestra channels Country Joe & the Fish and Arlo Guthrie on the jovial "Everybody's Broken," the Castanets provide a modern-day field recording with the sparse and spooky "First Light's Freeze," and orchestral/indie superstar Sufjan Stevens gets all sincere on "Opie's Funeral Song." The label's seven-year history has been filled with challenging, precious, alarming, sometimes awful music, and Mews Too: An Asthmatic Kitty Compilation is no exception. Fans of the Danielson Famile will find much to love here, but it would be a crime for the uninitiated not to give these colorful artists a peek as well. ~ James Christopher Monger
