about

Charlottesville, VA occupies a special place in the Oxtail Recordings world - we've released a number of tapes from Charlottesville artists, and the town and music community there have always been unbelievably warm, welcoming, and inspiring to us. We were heartbroken by the white supremacist "Unite the Right" rally and subsequent violence there during the weekend of August 11-12, 2017.

Oxtail artist and friend to all Tyler Magill (of Grand Banks and Carry) was among those protesting the rally that weekend, and he ended up suffering a stroke as a result of being assaulted by torch-wielding fascists on the evening of August 11.

The tragedy of those events shook us deeply, and the opportunity to use the small platform we have in this label to raise money to fight hate, bigotry, and violence and to help our friend heal was a no-brainer.

The number of incredible contributions we received from the Charlottesville music scene, as well as label friends in NYC and around the world was stunning - many of the tracks presented here are the artists' own attempts to engage with and make sense of the world since November 2016. That outpouring, in turn, energized us as it reminded us of the power that art and community have to bring people together to heal, share, and grow.

We believe that openness, engagement, and understanding are the ways to fight division, fear, and hatred. With that in mind, we're proud to present a release that attempts to forward those ideals, both in concept and in practice. Please enjoy: Together.
