To say that I am delighted to able to put this out to the masses is an understatement. This compilation album of various Rack & Ruin artists covering more mainstream artists, is as good an introduction to Rack & Ruin as you are likely to get.
Rack & Ruin prides itself on promoting artists that they find to be interesting, which does cover a vast spectrum of sounds, and to hear a selection of these sounds here - with the bonus of covering more well known artists is a real treat.
Whether you like the garage rock sound of Moon Runners, who cover an unreleased John Maus track, the indiepop bliss of Tyson Brinacombe's Spice Girls cover (which in all honesty could probably reach number 1 in 36 different countries), or the experimental noise of Roger Haddad taking on Interpol, there is one thing that is for sure - there will be something on this album will which suit your tastes.
To end with, Attacking Plaque invited other Rack & Ruin artists to sing along to a cover by The Unicorns. A mean feat on its own, but to say that these other artists have never met, and live all over the globe is an outstanding achievement.
