Huge thanks to Dustin Lovelis for making this compilation happen- for having the vision, for reaching out to R. Stevie Moore, and for getting all the bands together.

All hail the talented R. Stevie Moore.
We hope more listeners can recognize the beauty of his music and the scope of his influence.

"I had always heard about R. Stevie Moore through other musicians. It took me a while to finally dig in. Once I did I was fucking blown away. I wish I would've discovered him earlier so i'd have more time to listen to his entire 400 album catalog. The chord progressions and melodies are so complex but easy to listen to. That's why I wanted to put this compilation together. To spread the R Stevie seed. This guy is no joke. He's definitely worked his way into the Lennon/Wilson category in my book. Hats off to the man himself for naming the album and letting us try to record his music!"

PRESS

"No matter how prolific, the lo-fi recording pioneer and DIY hero, now 66 years old, has inspired many (Ariel Pink credits Moore as a mentor), spreading his legend via mail-order cassettes. Next month he will be honored with a tribute album — released by Long Beach’s Porch Party Records via cassette, of course — that features a host of Southern California artists (including Matt Costa, Joel Jerome, Lens Mozer and Greater California) covering Moore’s songs."
-Buzzbands LA

"Porch Party Records is on board and then some with their new tribute comp Sensual Harrassment: Various Artists Outperform the Hits of R. Stevie Moore, titled (and subtitled) with particularly R-Stevie-an elan. (Says Porch Party’s Casey Terrazas: “We hope this release introduces more curious listeners to his incredible music.”) There’s a heavy Long Beach presence here and plenty of L.A. RECORD alums, too, including Joel Jerome, Dustin Lovelis and William Alexander, and this cover by the indomitable (Rachel) Rufrano
-LA Record

"Largely unknown and highly influential."
-The New Yorker

"more than 400 separate full-length albums. That's right: 400. So why haven't you heard this guy?"
-Pitchfork

"Moore deserves a wider audience."
-Billboard

"A national treasure unrecognized in his homeland."
-Rolling Stone

"R. Stevie Moore is a true original... he has remained true to his fiercely independent vision."
