For Love Of Records have released a new double tribute double album in honor of the seminal Washington, DC music label Dischord Records. Featuring more than two dozen local area artists covering songs spanning some of the label’s most well-known and even lesser-known bands, Yesterday & Today: DC Does Dischord delivers a hard-hitting and comprehensive reflection on more than 40 years of the pivotal Dischord Records catalogue. A portion of the proceeds will go to help local Washington, DC senior outreach charity We Are Family DC. An all-ages record release show featuring Celebration Summer and others will be held at The Black Cat in Washington DC on July 5th.

For Love Of Records

For Love Of Records is a fully-DIY venture by Celebration Summer bassist Greg Raelson created with the intent of putting together a premier compilation to highlight local area bands and artists while paying tribute to the record label that has defined so much of his own musical journey. In creating this project, almost everything has been DC-centric by design. From working with local area fine artists for the packaging and design, to having local vinyl pressing plant Furnace Records handle the production. It reads as a love-letter not just to Dischord Records, but to the greater Washington, DC area and Yesterday & Today: DC Does Dischord is now available on limited edition double vinyl and download here.
