Barsuk Records has released ‘SAD! (A Barsuk Compilation for the ACLU)’, a collection of previously unreleased tracks by Barsuk artists covering other Barsuk artists. Available only on Bandcamp, 100% of the proceeds will go to the American Civil Liberties Union, which works in the nation’s courts, legislatures and communities to defend and preserve individual working rights and liberties guaranteed by the Constitution and the laws of the United States.
The Long Winters have contributed a rendition of Pedro The Lion’s song Second Best, and the compilation opens with a version of The Commander Thinks Aloud by David Bazan.
“After the election, our staff felt compelled to speak out in defense of the civil liberties of all Americans,” says Grant McCallum of Barsuk Records. “Helping support the crucial work of the ACLU by releasing these new tracks felt like one way we could make a statement and help, and the artists involved were all excited to donate their work.”
