Published Jun 08, 2009As we already learned from Matador Records, it's quite the bummer when beloved indie rock artifacts have to face destruction for heartless, logistical reasons. And unfortunately, Polyvinyl Records is facing similar problems. The seminal Illinois indie rock label now faces the destruction of over 10,000 perfectly good CDs because their distributor's warehouse is being downsized.
Rather than let these precious artifacts from the likes of Architecture in Helsinki, Mates of State, Rainer Maria and Joan of Arc go to waste, the label has decided to launch a charitable pledge system. The way it works is that you can pledge a certain amount, and have a certain amount of music sent to your home. It's simple, but long-winded. They've explained it best themselves here.
So to get involved and get your grubby hands on some cheap CDs, head over to the project page and help save 10,000 discs from destruction.
