Carpark Records, home of Toro Y Moi, Speedy Ortiz, TEEN, Young Magic, and many more, is celebrating its 16th anniversary this year which means it’s old enough to drive. For the occasion, they’re releasing a super sweet basketball themed compilation on May 26 featuring 19 bands from their current roster. Most of the songs were recorded specifically for the comp (and are about hoops), including TEEN’s “Dylan and Chong Playing Basketball” which makes its premiere in this post. You can stream it, and check out a Toro Y Moi vine, below.

The vinyl will be a picture disc limited to 600 copies, and sales of all versions of the album benefit the Little Kids Rock charity. Preorders are available. Full tracklist and artwork are below.

There will also be a few Carpark anniversary shows, including one at Brooklyn’s Baby’s All Right on March 6 with Lexie Mountain Boys, Greg Davis, Greys, Chandos, Ear Pwr, Safety Scissors, Adventure, Jimmy Whispers, and DJs Young Magic and Montag. Tickets for that show are on sale. There will be one in DC, plus one in Austin during SXSW as well. Details on those are below.
