Weekly Release Dump: Voters’ Rights Edition

Today is a special day. Bandcamp is donating all of their profits to the Voting Rights Project, to defend and improve the rights of voters in the United States. To read more on the subject and what Bandcamp is doing for this occasion, please click this link that will lead you to their website. My little contribution is this release dump post (for this occasion, I even included all upcoming releases of which I’m keeping track (you’re welcome). Your contribution can be any amount of money you can spare for one album or more. Alternatively, you can share this post or Bandcamp’s original article to support it!
