Presenting The Richmond Sound: 2018-2023
In honor of our fifth anniversary this month, The Auricular has curated a special 150-song compilation entitled The Richmond Sound: 2018-2023, released on a limited-edition cassette tape USB within a jewel case. This release covers the extent of Richmond music with songs from local musicians of all types: hip-hop, punk, country, R&B, rock, pop, funk, metal, soul, blues, electronica, grindcore, emo, garage, ambient, experimental, alternative, screamo, house, shoegaze, vaporwave, drone, hardcore, and more.
This compilation will not be available for sale but will be passed out free to attendees at The Auricular‘s 5th Anniversary Celebration on Saturday, September 23rd at Richmond Music Hall (event information available at this link). The ultimate goal is for this incredible collection of talent to serve as a guide for Richmond’s vibrant music scene. Hopefully, it will help listeners discover new musicians in the area, both right now and in the future. This local anthology will only be available as a cassette tape USB so make sure to stop by Richmond Music Hall on September 23rd in order to receive a copy.
