To-Go Records came out of the gate swinging in August of 2019 with the release of Depression Breakfast’s debut Just Because I’m a Womxn and hasn’t slowed down for a moment with the impressive releases. If you haven’t heard Slush or Engine IX, do yourself a favor and give em a listen.
The latest release from the label is the To-Go Holiday Comp; a fundraiser benefiting G.L.I.T.S. Inc. and Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee that features plenty of Christmas covers and originals from an impressive slate of artists. In the short span of ten tracks, the selected artists manage to evoke vibes of introspection, delightful cuteness and even a surprising bit of sultry. To-Go Records co-founder Jacob T. Corenflos even contributes a rendition of “Linus and Lucy” that feels straight from the Sonic Youth playbook; a compliment if ever there was one.
Hearing Slush, Heaven Honey, Bats, Dream Wave, Donors, Iven, Jacob T. Corenflos, Teddy and The Rough Riders, Josh Halper and Peachy all on one comp is enough of a treat to be thankful for during this weird year but the added bonus of being able to support two great organizations by purchasing the compilation makes it even sweeter. Go buy a copy and be sure to opt in to Follow To-Go, they’ve surely got plenty more to offer in the coming years.
