Music tribute to Wes Anderson out now

American Laundromat Records just released I Saved Latin! A Tribute To Wes Anderson, a double CD tribute to the film director.

“I had just finished watching the Criterion release of Bottle Rocket and was reading through the booklet that came with the DVD when the idea struck me,” explains Joe Spadaro, Founder and President of American Laundromat Records. “I emailed my designer Lon immediately and he loved the idea.”

"When I started reaching out to artists, I was blown away by the positive reception. Everyone had a very strong connection to Wes’s films and the song they wanted to cover.”

The 23-song, double-CD features covers of songs from Bottle Rocket, Rushmore, Royal Tenenbaums, Life Aquatic, Darjeeling Limited, and more. Exclusively recorded covers of songs by the Kinks, Rolling Stones, David Bowie, Elliott Smith, Nick Drake, Nico, Cat Stevens, John Lennon, among others are highlighted.

I Saved Latin! is available from, iTunes and direct from American Laundromat Records
