Gap Dream, JEFF The Brotherhood, Black Lips, King Khan & The Gris Gris, Mikal Cronin, Mind Spiders, Cheap Time, King Louie’s Missing Monuments, OBN IIIs, The Gories, King Khan, + Weekend. The album also includes custom album art & interview pieces with King Tuff + Mikal Cronin created by the rad dudes at Yours Truly.
“There are lots of things we love at Adult Swim. Two of them are music, and giving our fans stuff for free,” said Jason DeMarco, vice president of strategic marketing & promotions for Adult Swim. “Garage Swim represents our first foray into this genre of music, and as longtime fans, we’re happy to be able to offer some great free rock and roll to our fans- and fans of these artists! We hope they like it. And go download it. For free. Right now. Please.”
