It’s Bandcamp Friday again, and you know what that means – waiving their fees means that artists and labels get a bigger piece of the pie. There are plenty of worthy causes vying for your attention today, but we reckon that this compilation, put together by Etai Fuchs of the Baltimore-based band Moon By Moon, who also has an eponymous solo project and runs a record label, is especially notable. For one thing, just look at this lineup poster!
Fuchs himself collaborates with Madsxen, and there are contributions elsewhere from the likes of Harmony Woods, Another Michael, Calicoco (whose excellent new record Underneath is also out today), Diners, Communicant, Options, LIT. MAJOR, Route 500, Earth Tones, Tiny Moon… as we said, it’s more stacked than a plate of pancakes. Check out the full lineup below; the Sunrise Music compilation is available to stream and buy via Bandcamp today, with proceeds going to the climate-focused Sunrise Movement and the participating artists. It’s the third instalment of the Pandemic Artist Relief series started by Gardenhead Records last year, and there’s a whole lot of good stuff on its predecessors. Get involved!
