Castle Face, Famous Class & In the Red auctioning off test pressings for charity (Thee Oh Sees, Ty Segall & lots more)

IMAGE

Indie labels Castle Face, Famous Class and In the Red (which have all released records by Thee Oh Sees and Ty Segall) are teaming up to auction off rare vinyl test pressings to raise money for charity. They include releases by Ty and Thee Oh Sees, as well as Parquet Courts, White Fence, Fuzz, Jay Reatard, Black Lips, Wand, and lots more. To make them even more desirable, most of these test presses are signed or feature original art from the bands. John Dwyer hand painted all of his Castle Face releases himself. Pretty cool.

Proceeds from the Castle Face auction go to Pathway Recuperative Care; proceeds from the Famous Class auction and In the Red auction go to the Save the Music Foundation. The auctions run through March 22 and you can check out all the items up for bid below.
