Castle Face Records

Inspired by Ascetic House Collective, we are also proud to offer any CDs from our catalog, mailed to an incarcerated person in the United States free of charge. Contact us at castlefacerecs@gmail.com with the subject line CASTLE FACE FOR THE INCARCERATED, and please include the inmates name, the facility they are in, the inmates number and any mailing restrictions that you know of. We'll do the rest. 

 

From Ascetic House Collective's site:

"The United States leads the world in the rate of incarcerating its own citizens. We imprison more of our own people than any other country on earth, including China, which has 4 times our population. Over two million people are currently locked up in the immense network of U.S. prisons and jails. Mass incarceration is the corrupt systems best solution to the vast array of social problems that burden the poor, the disenfranchised, and the marginalized among us. It is also the corrupt systems best method of perpetuating itself, with the main focus of state policy being social control. 

 

As a result most of us have a relative, a loved one, a friend or a friend of a friend that is or has been incarcerated. These are our brothers and sisters, mothers and fathers, sons and daughters. More than half of those relegated to cages are there for nonviolent “crimes”: vice crimes, thought crimes, political crimes and the like. It is extremely important we do not forget these brothers and sisters, mothers and fathers, sons and daughters."
