As a thank you to our readers this holiday season, we asked some off our favorite local record labels to create special mp3 samplers to showcase their rosters. Every Wednesday this month, we will be posting a different sampler from a great local label. They’re all free, but you will only be able to download them for a limited time, so get to it!

This week: Absolutely Kosher

Last week: Anticon Records

Previously: Thread Productions

Earlier: Three Ring Records

This week, we conclude our free holiday giveaway series with an exclusive sampler from the East Bay’s Absolutely Kosher Records. Started in 1998, you’re likely a fan of at least one of the label’s roster of prestigious local and national groups. In the past, we’ve featured AK bands including 60 Watt Kid, Ex-Boyfriends, and Pidgeon, and they’ve also put out albums by The Dead Science, The Mountain Goats, Pinback, and more.

Earlier this year, the label announced a partnership with Misra Records, and this week’s sampler includes both Absolutely Kosher and Misra artists. The sampler was compiled exclusively for The Bay Bridged and features selections from many of both labels’ recent releases.
