My friends in the music industry have produced another fantastic compilation of previously unreleased recordings by the likes of Pearl Jam, David Byrne, Yoko Ono, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Sturgill Simpson, Arcade Fire, and many other artists. "Good Music to Avert the Collapse of American Democracy" is on sale at Bandcamp today only. Above, listen to "No Woman" (Whitney Cover) by Phoenix (not by David Byrne as it's mislabeled.) From GoodMusic2020:
The second edition of the compilation follows the original version released last month in support of Fair Fight and Color of Change . After raising over a quarter of a million dollars for those initiatives, the compilation's organizers — author Dave Eggers, along with artist managers Jordan Kurland and Darius Zelkha (Brilliant Corners Artist Management), Christian Stavros (Little Operation Management), and Barsuk Records label head Josh Rosenfeld — were inspired to to create another. When they reached out to artists to participate, the response, and support, was overwhelming; as such, the resulting collection is, once again, an eclectic group of incredible musicians from many genres coming together to support a common cause at a time when voter advocacy is needed most.
