Physically Sick 2

Various Artists


This is the second large charity compilation by Allergy Season and Discwoman. It was released in March of 2018 with 100% of profits from the compilation going to the Brooklyn Community Bail Fund. There’s 44 tracks on this compilation with a range of sounds and so much good stuff to explore so I’d highly recommend it, also because it’s for a good cause. I’ll leave part of the Bandcamp description with more details about the project:

It's hard to believe it's been a year since we released Physically Sick, and while the response was beyond our expectations -- there's no sugarcoating it: we're still sick! Injustice continues to infect us, hate keeps metastasizing. In search of remedies, we're focusing on localized treatment and aligning with the Brooklyn Community Bail Fund, which helps those caught in the insidious, punitive cycle of bail and prison.

Everyone's heard of bail -- but the cycle of financial bondage it perpetuates is less well known. If a person can't pay their bail, they must wait in jail until their court date. Months may go by, even years, simply because someone -- who has yet to be convicted of any crime -- couldn't come up a few hundred dollars. It is a racist, backwards design that disproportionately punishes people of color and the poor. Our goal is to draw attention to this pernicious cycle, and raise actual bail money for as many people as possible.
