Merge Celebrates Anniversary With Box Set

The fantastic indie label Merge Records, home of far too many Tripwire favorites to even begin to list, will be celebrating their twentieth anniversary with a subscription-only box set. SCORE! will feature a total of fourteen custom discs, curated by a variety of musicians, actors, authors and others.

The first two discs are being curated by REM's Peter Buck and director Phil Morrison (Junebug). Others scheduled to rock curator duties include Amy Poehler and David Byrne. The quantities of discs will be determined by the number of pre-orders, which will take place between September 8 and January of 2009.

Another cool aspect to the SCORE! series is that sales from each will benefit charities selected by the curators. For more, head over to Merge Records' official website.
