New Fair Fight Benefit Comp Includes New Music From Phoebe Bridgers, Hayley Williams, Weyes Blood, and Angel Olsen

Good Music to Avert the Collapse of American Democracy will be available Friday on Bandcamp for only 24 hours.

Good Music to Avert the Collapse of American Democracy is a new compilation album here to help out. Featuring R.E.M., Hayley Williams, Jamila Woods, Phoebe Bridgers, Angel Olsen, and many more, the album will be available this Friday on Bandcamp for twenty-four hours with all proceeds going to Fair Fight, which promotes fair elections around the country.

The forty songs are all unreleased material—from voice memos to live versions of songs. This project was produced by author Dave Eggers, who said in the press release: “It’s going to come down to bringing out and protecting the vote this fall, so the work Fair Fight does is crucial. Jordan [Kurland] and I figured a painless way to raise some money would be to ask musicians to donate unreleased tracks, people pay a few bucks for them, and maybe we can edge toward a functioning democracy again.”
