Released next week through Bandcamp

Sharon Van Etten and Big Thief are among the 31 acts contributing to a new benefit album, ‘To the People of the Land: Carrizo​/​Comecrudo Solidarity Compilation’.

The album was curated by singer-songwriter Jordan Moser and Austin, Texas label Keeled Scales and also features contributions from Black Belt Eagle Scout, Aisha Burns and Little Wings, among others.

Tracks featured on the album include previously unreleased demos, such as Big Thief’s ‘Jane’ and Van Etten’s untitled song.

The compilation, released on October 9 through Bandcamp, will raise funds for the Estok’Gna, otherwise known as the Carrizo/Comecrudo tribe of Texas.

Currently, multiple liquid natural gas terminals and pipelines are planned on the land of the Estok’Gna. In addition, Texas regulations mean the Estok’Gna could face felony charges and fines for occupying and praying at their sacred sites.

“As indigenous people continue to lead the fight against the reckless fossil fuel industry, we are honoured to offer this compilation and its earnings in solidarity with everyone in the fight for racial justice and a livable future for all beings on planet earth,” a statement released through Bandcamp read.
