To celebrate the record label reaching legal drinking age, they have released a limited-edition set of six 7? singles, all of which comprise celebratory drinking-related songs. The collection comes packaged in a custom six-pack carrying case and everything.
EVERY 21st birthday party needs a worthy soundtrack!!! We invite you to paint the town BLOODSHOT RED with this 12 pack of songs celebrating the grain and the grape, sung in the key of REVELRY!
This super LIMITED EDITION set of six 45 rpm 7'' SINGLES comes to you in a custom 6-pack carrying case, and features some familiar BLOODSHOT artists including KELLY HOGAN, BOBBY BARE, JR, NORA O'CONNOR, BANDITOS, plus recent signees THE YAWPERS and AL SCORCH, alongside friends of the label like ROBERT POLLARD of GUIDED BY VOICES, DALE WATSON, DEER TICK, ELIZABETH COOK and more.
It's a collection where punk, country, roots and good times meet. Brewed by the grimy light reflected off the green waters of the Chicago River, there's a smooth yet spicy ear feel, redolent of feedback, pathos, humor, and freshly mown grass. With tasty notes if boysenberry, elderflower, late night diners, shoe leather and an oaky, bitter finish, it's a sound you'll savor, listen after listen.
