Los Angeles. On Saturday, September 7th, new West-side based music store Touch Vinyl launches "Touch Tapes" on Cassette Store Day with 7 unique tape releases. One special mixtape "Serene Wave", showcases strictly Westside-based bands and artists as a benefit for Surfrider Foundation. All proceeds from the sale of this mixtape goes directly to the Surfrider Foundation which will help keep our environment, ocean, and beaches clean.
This special mixtape, produced by Malcolm Cross of Morello, includes: The Tulips, Alicia Murphy, The Olms, Fauntella Crow, Chris Joyner, Troup, Daryl Hannah, Solomon's Seal, Parker Ainsworth, Sonia Rao, We Are The West, JaJa Valentine, Sid Jordan, The Dustbowl Revival, Greg Johnson, Clayton Joseph Scott, MK & The Gentlemen, Tom Freund, Matt Ellis, Minnie Driver, Lukas Nelson & P.O.T.R. and Morello.
The project was completed when husband-and-wife artist team Kozyndan signed on to provide the cover art. In addition to this compilation being a one of a kind, rare, opportunity for music lovers, there will be a limited edition series which feature handmade labels available for those lucky cassette junkies that get into the store in time to purchase them. Each cassette comes with a free digital download card so you can download all music into your Ipod. The compilation will also be available digitally on release day if you are without cassette deck/boom box, yet still want to support Surfrider Foundation for this worthy cause.
