VARIOUS ARTISTS: Stay Home: CD-R

There is no way you can say there is a positive aspect to this global pandemic, but it has been at the very least heart-warming to see so many artists continuing to do their thing while the world crumbles. Take the fine folks at Drunk Dial Records. They decided that they needed to work on a project, so they reached out to some of their musician friends around the world, asking them to record a Ramones song of their choice by whatever means they had available during the lockdown. The result is a sweet little compilation of people doing their best to revel in the pure three chord joy that is the Ramones. I hope a proper release will follow once things get sorted out. This is a lot of fun. –Ty Stranglehold (Drunk Dial, drunkdialrecords.bandcamp.com)
