Local DIY effort For Love Of Records announced the release of a new double-LP tribute album in honor of the seminal Washington, DC music label Dischord Records. Featuring more than two dozen local area artists covering songs spanning some of the label’s most well-known and even lesser-known bands, Yesterday & Today: DC Does Dischord delivers a hard-hitting and comprehensive reflection on more than 40 years of the pivotal Dischord catalogue. You can find the full track list below.

For Love Of Records is a fully-DIY venture by Celebration Summer bassist Greg Raelson created with the intent of putting together a premier compilation to highlight local area bands and artists while paying tribute to the record label that has defined so much of his own musical journey.

“I wanted to do something special to bring some attention to the amazing alternative, punk and hardcore scene currently happening in our area,” said Raelson.  “And in doing so, pay respect to the label that put DC underground music on the map in the first place.”

In creating this project, almost everything has been DC-centric by design. From working with local area fine artists for the packaging and design, to having local vinyl pressing plant Furnace Records handle the production. It reads as a love-letter not just to Dischord, but to the greater Washington, DC area. A portion of the proceeds will go to help local Washington, DC senior outreach charity We Are Family DC.

'Yesterday & Today: DC Does Dischord' is available now for digital download and a limited-edition gatefold double-LP in two different variants is available for preorder.
