AllMusic Review by

A handy compilation that will not only sharpen up your knowledge of obscure indie bands, but it'll also contribute to a worthy cause. Indie Aid Abroad is a compilation of 22 bands who all donated a track or two for the benefit of East Timor's rebuild. But this isn't a collection of throwaway tracks: there's the Cornershop-esque sound of the Steinbecks, the simple pop charm of the Cannanes, the uptempo glee of the Castaway Stones, the female-fronted pop of the Autocolants, the electronic joy of Hydroplane...the list goes on and on.
