As you know, here at Too Many Blogs, we are a music site. We bring you new music, review music we’ve seen live, talk about music we do and don’t like. One key aspect: it’s all about music. But we don’t talk to you about other things in life we’re passionate about, like trying to make the world a less shitty place, which is getting more difficult by the day.
There is one record label trying to do just that today, and we’re premiering their hard work right here on TMB. 6 months after their first release, Struck Out has been assembled in under two weeks from conception to release. The compilation compiles tracks from signed and unsigned artists from an outstanding variety of genres, demos, album tracks, songs you may have heard before and exclusive tracks you DEFINITELY haven’t.
Major Leagues, an independent record label based all over the UK, but originating in Devon, decided to gather some of their favourite acts together for this super special compilation. Inspired by Secretly Group’s Our First 100 Days and the indie stars that have been banding together to raise money for this cause, Major Leagues felt compelled to help out. They said “Given the desperate need for support for refugees in camps across Syria, Lebanon, and Europe, and the lack of help coming from the government, we’ve brought together as many bands as we can muster from across all genres and of all sizes to help fund the essential work that Help Refugees do.”
You’ll notice names in there such as Alcopop!’s Weirds and TIGERCUB, a special cover from The Magic Gang, the sweet sounds of Fake Laugh, deathly demos from Luxury Death and The Death of Pop, grungier fixes from Cassels, meals and Broadbay, brand new exclusive tracks from itoldyouiwouldeatyou, Porridge Radio, Posture, Party Hardly AND Team Picture AND LOADS MORE. It’s genuinely pretty insane what has been put together in the space of 14 days. We hope you’ll fall in love with this music as much as Too Many Blogs and Major Leagues have, and buy the compilation in support of the musicians but most importantly the charity we’re trying to support.
