Rum Bar Records are one of our favorite labels here at If It's Too Loud... It's a curated label offering the best of garage rock, power pop, punk, etc. (with an emphasis on Boston bands!) out there today, and it's one of the rare labels that we trust and want to listen to everything they put out. Today they just released The Nice Price, a free thirty-one song label sampler featuring the best of their 2023 releases. That's free music from favorites like The Lemon Drop Gang, The Streetwalkin' Cheetahs, The Gypsy Moths, The Shang Hi Los, Stars Like Ours, Eddie Japan featuring Greg Hawkes, The Hi-End, and many, many more! Just like all the label samplers we grew up with, this is a great way to discover new favorites for a very nice price! (.. I'll see myself out.)
Label head Lou Mansdorf says of his new label sampler:
"I love doing these label sampler and Bandcamp compilations. Over the years I have done various ones -- some sequels, some with altering music themes related to Rum Bar Records' roster of genres and artists falling under our gonzo hybrid garage rock, power-pop, glam, girl group sounds, swaggering rock n' roll, rebel rousing alt-country rock and heartland punk."
You can listen to The Nice Price below. The sampler is available now for free via Bandcamp. While you're there, Rum Bar Records is offering 20% off throughout December using the code holiday20!
