No More Fake Labels is home to some pretty talented artists. Their website nomorefakelabels.com declares "KEEP INDIE ALIVE, BUY INDIE MUSIC and SUPPORT INDIE ARTISTS!"
So it's no surprise that they have put together the most amazing tribute album for one of the most significant indie rock bands ever, Guided By Voices.
The list of artists featured in this compilation is rather impressive and include many bands I love. Cymbals Eat Guitars, Flaming Lips, Western Civ, and Athens' own Mass Solo Revolt just to name a few!!!
Are you excited?!
The album is called Sing For Your Meat and will be released on Record Store Day!!!
That's April 16, 2011!
But wait... THERE'S MORE EXCITING NEWS!!!!
In addition to the main CD, is a free digital EP companion with 5 extra songs! Even better...the tracks from BOTH album and digital EP will be mixed together and printed on a DOUBLE mixed color 12" vinyl LP set!!! Makes releasing it on Record Store Day a really nice touch, don't you think?
So, there you go. It's still a few months away. Plenty of time to make sure you've set some cash aside and have time cleared on your calendar for April 16. It'll be here soon enough, but now that you've got the details...you can rest easy until then.
