are ecstatic to announce our most ambitious project to date. Head Cleaner-A
Louisville Music Compilation Vol. 7,9,10,11 & 12. Now in it’s third year,
Head Cleaner is our annual compilation that documents the music of
Louisville, Kentucky. An open call was made to the Louisville music
community and the results completely overwhelmed and humbled us. We are
honored to say that this years Head Cleaner consists of 188 local bands
spread across a staggering 3 cassette box set and two additional download
sets, 9 plus hours of local music, making this the longest and also an
extremely important document in Louisville music history. Every stone was
unturned and every corner searched to make this collection as diverse as
possible, but it was also designed to flow like an album. This is Louisville
music unfiltered, no band was turned away or excluded because of style or
notoriety, its all here, a true look into Louisville music. Normally we
exalt on how creative, amazing, diverse and weird the Louisville music scene
is. Or about how many people are working behind the curtain to keep this
community afloat. But I think that all of that talk will become obvious and
crystal clear once the play button is hit and the sounds of Louisville come
forth. This compilation tells its own narrative....
The compilation also serves as a fundraiser. This year $2.00 from every Head Cleaner sold will go to Louisville’s progressive non-profit radio station ARTxFM. In addition 100% of all of the proceeds from the release show admission will go directly to ARTxFM as well.
