American Laundromat Records is an independent record label based in Mystic, CT. The label gained national attention for its popular 2005 compilation High School Reunion: a tribute to those great 80's films which featured indie-rockers covering beloved tunes from some of the 80's most popular teen films. All Music Guide called the 20-song thematic compilation “One of the finest tributes ever amassed!” and went on the say, “Let this serve as a blueprint for all future tribute sets.” Other ALR projects include the critically-acclaimed double-CD; Cinnamon Girl: Women Artists Cover Neil Young for Charity, the award-winning children’s album Sing Me To Sleep: Indie Lullabies, and the popular tributes; Dig For Fire: a tribute to the Pixies, Just Like Heaven: a tribute to The Cure, and Please, Please, Please: a tribute to The Smiths.
