We hear a lot about Brooklyn, Montreal and San Francisco, but think Vancouver's music community is the best around. The CiTR/Mint Pop Alliance Compilation is just that - a snapshot of our rainy city on a Friday night in 2011. It features 11 prominent local bands including: No Kids, Kellarissa (P:ano, The Choir Practice), Fine Mist, Slam Dunk, Apollo Ghosts and many more. Only 300 copies have been pressed on 180g vinyl and hand-numbered with care. The songs, labour, mastering and artwork were donated and proceeds from the record will benefit CiTR 101.9fm, the campus radio station where Mint Records began. Tiny trimmings from CiTR's Duncan McHugh's beard were mixed into the molten vinyl during the manufacturing process (Not really. But you get the picture, this record was made possible by several people with a lot of love).
