Treble staff

Today is Bandcamp Friday, which means a lot of cool stuff is being released today, some of it for a short time only. One of those releases is Good Music to Avert the Collapse of American Democracy, a compilation of rare and unreleased music (many of these covers) by 40 bands, with 100 percent of proceeds going toward Fair Fight, an organization that promotes fair elections and works to protect voting rights in the U.S. And given that this is an election year and an important one at that, that’s as good a reason as any to download the album. It just also happens to have unreleased tracks from the likes of R.E.M., Paramore’s Hayley Williams, Death Cab For Cutie, Superchunk, Soccer Mommy, Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy, Sharon Van Etten, The National’s Matt Berninger, Sudan Archives, Angel Olsen, Weyes Blood and more. Check out the tracklist below and buy the album here.
