51 Bands, from all around the world, have joined their hearts & music together, to pay tribute to one of the most passionate music enthusiasts that the shoegaze community has ever known. This compilation, affectionately titled “For The Love of Chris Tressler”, is dedicated to the memory of this amazing man.

Chris Tressler was truly in a league of his own. He had a zeal for music that seemed almost as vital to him as the air in his lungs and the beat of his heart. His pursuit of new music, and desire to share that music with the world around him, was unparalleled. Chris was such a pillar of support for the bands that he loved! The shoegaze/dreampop community has definitely felt the loss of his selfless, devoted and positive presence.

Due to the fact that we want this music, and the memory of Chris, to reach as many people as possible, we have decided to make this comp available as a free download on bandcamp.

For any that would like to make a monetary donation, in memory of Chris, here is wonderful organization that encourages the creation of music & “provides musical instruments to underserved children, with a hunger to play”. This link allows us to make “dedication donations”, in honor of Chris: hungryformusic.org/make-a-dedication-donation/

Jonathan Sellers and Krissy VanderWoude would like to thank everyone who has been a part of this comp & helped us bring this vision to life.

Our deepest & most heartfelt sympathy extended to Chris Tressler’s family and friends. We hope that you will find comfort in knowing how loved he was. May his memory live on through this beautiful music!

Due to the overwhelming support, we may or may not have enough download credits to support free download through Bandcamp’s site. However, we have uploaded the entire comp onto this MediaFire link:
