Whether it was Epitaph Records’ Punk-O-Rama, Kung-Fu’s Punk Rock Is Your Friend or even Warped Tour’s annual summer compilation, we should all be in agreement that multi-track samplers kick ass.
And, in a time where streaming services like Spotify and Apple Music force feed all different types of music into our ears, sometimes it’s nice for a hand-picked playlist to help guide our musical selections.
That said, our pals at Artery, Bad Timing, Blue Swan, Epitaph, Equal Vision, Fearless, Hopeless, No Sleep, Pure Noise and Rise Records have all pitched in to create a one-of-a-kind, 20-track sampler titled From The Get Go.
Featuring acts like, Conquer Divide, This Wild Life, Trophy Eyes, Hail The Sun and plenty more, the new compilation does an excellent job showcasing the future of heavy-ish music – which is exactly what it intended to do.
“I think this sampler is an awesome opportunity for people to discover the best up and coming acts from the top labels in the scene,” says Dance Gavin Dace guitarist and Blue Swan Records owner Will Swan. “We’re ushering in a new era of bands that are going to take over and you can say you heard it here first.”
Fearless A&R Sal Torres added to Swan’s point saying, “We wanted to do something that was fun and showed community through all the great bands and people that we work with. These songs are some of the artist’s introduction to the world and we just wanted to help people discover them in a great way.”
