Post-Trash is beyond thrilled to present Post-Trash: Volume Three, the latest in our yearly charitable promo compilation series. We know we're a little late as 2017 has come and gone, but we sincerely think the wait was worth it as we present you with fifty one (!!) new tracks from some of the best up-and-coming (and in some cases legendary) bands around. This year we are pleased to donate 100% of the proceeds to Mariafund.org
, a Puerto Rican disaster relief agency formed in the wake of Hurricane Maria. The people and organizations at the grassroots are leading the day-to-day recovery and rebuilding a new Puerto Rico. The Maria Fund is dedicated to supporting these initiatives. There's lots of worthy causes these days but we felt it critical to support those still struggling all these months later with access to power, clean water, and stable living conditions.
The idea on our end is simple: spread good music throughout the world and do some good in the process. With so much great bands emerging from the underground and DIY scene over the past year, it was hard to narrow it down to just a few artists... so we didn't. We left it expansive, a neat fifty (one) bands, defying our own expectations and making forward thinking music from abrasive punk and experimental rock to progressive pop and comforting twee. We are overwhelmed by how many bands/artists recorded a new song just for the compilation, and thrilled to present some of our favorite albums cuts as well. As always, there's something for everyone, and everything for someone.
Download the compilation and please donate toward the Maria Fund if you can. It's a "name-your-price download" and every bit helps. Spread the word and share the link. We can make a difference and listen to great music at the same time, the combo we've all been waiting for. Hope you enjoy and thanks for all the support. A special thank you to everyone who helped make this happen and all the bands involved.
