The ongoing state-sanctioned violence against Black, Indigenous, and People of Color in the US and around the world is fueling our hearts with sadness and anger but there's so much we all can do to make a difference. Supporting and listening to the voices of marginalized artists and musicians is just one aspect. This Juneteenth Bandcamp steps up and for every purchase you make they'll be donating 100% of their share of sales to the NAACP Legal Defense Fund, a national organization enacting racial justice and working towards change through litigation, advocacy, and public education. Here are just ten records to purchase today via Bandcamp to support the cause.
Twelve months of great musical releases have passed and at the end of it it's time to recap the best of them like we always do when then the year is about to close its curtain.
