Howlround, Clive Henry, and other experimental artists contribute to refugee benefit compilation

Even though global media coverage of the European migrant crisis has seemingly waned in recent weeks, that shouldn’t be considered correlative to shoddy crafts ceasing to cross the Mediterranean or Middle Eastern war zones suddenly becoming revitalized hand-holding centers. People who were fleeing the particular fights in which they didn’t have a dog are continuing to do so, and as such, they could generally use some help from those of us born into relatively peaceful circumstances. Wouldn’t it be doubly great if sympathetic music lovers were offered a chance to help while simultaneously listening to sounds that cater to unorthodox tastes?

Extraction Music was originally a live fundraiser hosted at the Chapter Arts Centre in Cardiff, UK, on May 28, and now people at large are being offered a chance to contribute through an associated Bandcamp release. Four British pounds is the minimum asking price, and with it you get drone-y/possibly noisy tracks (some of which are live recordings from the fundraiser) from Howlround, Clive Henry, Yol, Kevin Sanders, and more. Proceeds go to refugee charities “local” to the area.

Here’s the link to the release page.
