Flume, Tycho, R.E.M., Jay Som, Sudan Archives Featured On Massive New Bandcamp Compilation To Benefit Fair Elections In US

Today is another Bandcamp Friday and with an election unlike one we have seen in quite some time (I know it gets said every time, but damn it's true), musicians are lining up to donate music to various charitable causes. This new compilation gets right to the point with its title, Good Music to Avert the Collapse of American Democracy and has some incredible artists contributing including Flume, Tycho, R.E.M. Jay Som, and Sudan Archives. The compilation will benefit Fair Fight, which is fighting for fair elections in the US through voter education, election reform, and combating voter suppression.

The artists offer music in various forms like covers, live recordings, acoustic versions of tracks and even new songs. There are 40 songs in total and it is available for 24 HOURS ONLY on Bandcamp for Bandcamp Friday. So if you see this because the algorithm has blessed you, go ahead and buy the comp for some rare music to try and save our election from the orange turd who hates America.  

The compilation’s cover art was created by acclaimed artist Shepard Fairey. A limited edition signed poster of the artwork will also be sold on Friday via Bandcamp, with net proceeds going to to the nation's largest online racial justice organization, Color of Change.
