Barsuk is excited to announce a new member of the Barsuk family: NYC's Charly Bliss is responsible for having crafted some of the finest guitar-crunched power pop this side of an old Weezer record with a blue cover. The ten tracks that make up Guppy, the band's sparking full-length debut, show them embracing all of their strengths — a combination of ripping guitars and irrepressible pop hooks, all delivered with the hyper-enthusiasm of a middle school cafeteria food fight. Pre-order bundles available now in the Barsuk shop.

Today Barsuk Records released "SAD! (A Barsuk Compilation for the ACLU)," a collection of previously unreleased tracks by Barsuk artists covering other Barsuk artists. Available only on Bandcamp, 100% of the proceeds will go to the American Civil Liberties Union, which works in the nation's courts, legislatures and communities to defend and preserve individual working rights and liberties guaranteed by the Constitution and the laws of the United States.

"After the election, our staff felt compelled to speak out in defense of the civil liberties of all Americans," says Grant McCallum of Barsuk Records. "Helping support the crucial work of the ACLU by releasing these new tracks felt like one way we could make a statement and help, and the artists involved were all excited to donate their work."
