American Laundromat Records is an indie label based out of Southeastern, CT. Founded in April of 2004 the label is best known for releasing popular tribute compilations. "High School Reunion - a tribute to those great 80's films" featured indie-rockers Matthew Sweet, Frank Black, Dresden Dolls and others covering beloved tunes from some of the 80's most popular teen films. All Music Guide called the project "One of the finest tributes ever amassed" and went on to say "let this serve as a blueprint for all future tribute sets". American Laundromat's most recent tribute "Cinnamon Girl - Women Artists Cover Neil Young For Charity" features Tanya Donelly, Kristin Hersh, Veruca Salt, The Watson Twins, Lori McKenna, Britta Phillips, Josie Cotton, Jill Sobule and more covering Neil Young's early work (1969-1979). All proceeds from the project are donated to charity and critics have called the double-CD "a superb collection of Young's work", "the tribute album Neil Young has deserved for most of his long and prolific career", and "an absolute must-have companion piece for fans of Young's catalog."
