Burger Records, the mostly-cassettes label that has released some of my favorite albums of the year, released a new compilation today in conjunction with its sister label, Wiener Records, that looks friggin' awesome.
The Wiener Dog Comp contains 71 unreleased tracks by 71 Burger-associated acts, spread over two cassettes. With songs by bands including Thee Oh Sees, Redd Kross, Jaill, King Tuff, The Eeries, Spanish Moss, The Blank Tapes, Pop Zeus and tons more, it almost warrants running out and buying a cassette deck just to listen to it.
Further incentive: The comp also contains songs by three Tucson bands — Lenguas Largas, The Resonars, and Freezing Hands.
Even more incentive: All of the proceeds from sales go toward an operation to remove a growth from the belly of Popcorn!, the adorable wiener dog featured in the video above. Any leftover proceeds will be donated to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. So it's like a triple-win!
If you want in on the action, get to it: Only 500 copies were pressed. Oh, and it's only 10 bucks per copy.
