The compilation hosts appearances from an array of artists who have releases on Tender Loving Empire, and others who release music with our cherished comrade labels including Sub Pop, Polyvinyl, Anti- and more. We invite you to grab a beverage, find a comfortable seat and enjoy this year’s batch of muses.
