Yep, it’s a Bandcamp thang, but it is a real who’s who of alternative music with Vibracathedral Orchestra, Richard Youngs, Chris Corsano with Paul Flaherty, MV & EE with the Golden Road, Silvester Anfang II, Sunburned Hand of the Man, Heather Leigh, Bardo Pond, Tom Greenwood (of Jackie-O Motherfucker), Gate, Bird People, Tom Carter himself and, literally, loads more.
Let’s face it, most of todays finest musicians probably don’t even make as much as the UK’s national minimum wage and to suddenly be unable to play live, to have to pay for a new transatlantic flight home and all the healthcare costs must be a real nightmare
Just in case you weren’t aware, Antiopic have put together a 64-track compilation album for download with 100% of the proceeds going to Japan.
The album includes contributions from Grouper, Stephan Mathieu, Akron/Family, Oneohtrix Point Never, Ben Frost, Grouper, James Blackshaw with Hush Arbors, Tom Carter, Rhys Chatham, both halves of Barn Owl (Evan Caminiti and Elm aka Jon Porras) and a whole lot more.
the album can be purchased (and every song can be previewed) here
