new music: toro y moi’s “omaha” appears on ‘our first 100 days’ compilation to benefit immigrant justice #soundcheck

February 3, 2017

With the Trump administration looking to confirm many of the worst predictions of his presidency offered over the past two years, the Our First 100 Days project has been drafting an expanding roster of artists to respond. All profits raised from the project go to benefit organizations working on climate change, women’s rights, and immigrant rights. On a similar tack, Bandcamp itself has committed to donating 100% of profits raised on Friday February 3rd to the ACLU and other organizations fighting on the frontlines of immigrant justice. Toro Y Moi’s contribution, “Omaha,” is a dreamy piece of indelible indie pop, like only they make. Pick it up, and contribute to an important cause. If not now, then when?
