Hopefully He’s Not Miserable Now – A Smith Tribute is coming…

I wanted to spread the word that American Laundromat Records has put together what seems like a dandy double disc tribute album to that iconic band, the Smiths. The project, entitled Please, Please, Please, comes with several format options (7 inch, extra downloads, etc) but the main item is the 20 tribute tracks. Contributors range from veteran acts like Sixpence None The Richer and Built to Spill’s Doug Martsch to younger groups like Telekinesis and Girl In A Coma.

Here is the full tracklist:
