At Paste, we're all about raising money for great, musical causes. We're also all about receiving tons of great music for a pretty minimal cost. And we're very, very against the destruction of thousands of records.So you can imagine our interest when Illinois indie label Polyvinyl began a pledge drive to prevent mass record-cide in their warehouse.

The label, which boasts a current roster of artists like Asobi Seksu, Of Montreal and Architecture in Helsinki, has run into a bit of a storage problem—one, apparently, that won't be fixed by a simple trip to the Container Store. Polyvinyl's warehouse has consolidated, and as a result of the smaller storage space, the warehouse wants to destroy 10,000 of the albums that are currently filling the space floor-to-ceiling.
