GOLDRUSH 2013 Festival Companion Cassette

Welcome back once again to Planted Tapes, long time, no see! Thanks for dropping in, sorry for not writing more often, but we have a really special item in our distro that we just can't wait to tell you about. In case you hadn't noticed outside, the temperatures have finally started to level off a little out there, at least for us here in Denver — generally a welcome change of events if it didn't also come this year with liters upon liters of rain. We are always looking towards the Fall season here in Colorado as September can only mean one thing... GOLDRUSH. That's right, Goldrush Music Festival is upon us once again, taking place this year on September 27th & 28th at Planted Tapes' newest, most favorite place in the entire world, The Sidewinder Tavern and Crash 45. An excellent lineup of artists is set to make its way up to Globeville at 45th and Logan St. to bear witness to the festival's third annual edition, featuring performances by no less than 21 acts across two days, two venues, and three stages. Holy shit. We're not even joking: Noveller will be there. MV&EE. Thollem ElectricLee Noble, Derek Rogers, Scammers, Giant Claw, Saguache... it's going to be insane, people.

This year's Companion Cassette tape came together especially well, with 18 tracks split across two sides, 16 of them being exclusive to our compilation. That means we've got brand new tunes from the majority of our performance lineup, and each and every one of these folks delivered hard, turning in an amazing representation of what they bring to this year's very full, very amazing schedule of events. Check out a stream of Side A, premiered over at Tiny Mix Tapes, and check back for Side B next week!
