New York collective Discwoman and Allergy Season have teamed up for 44-track charity compilation 'Physically Sick 2'.
Curated by Discwoman co-founders Umfang and Frankie Decaiza Hutchinson and Allergy Season head Physical Therapy, it features tracks by Fatima Al Qadiri, Toronto producer Ciel (pictured), Lady Blacktronika, Mobilegirl and Elysia Crampton.
Coming a year after the first edition, all prits go to the Brooklyn Community Bail Fund.
The Bandcamp description reads: "It's hard to believe it's been a year since we released 'Physically Sick', and while the response was beyond our expectations -- there's no sugarcoating it: we're still sick! Injustice continues to infect us, hate keeps metastasizing. In search remedies, we're focusing on localized treatment and aligning with the Brooklyn Community Bail Fund, which helps those caught in the insidious, punitive cycle bail and prison.
"Everyone's heard bail -- but the cycle financial bondage it perpetuates is less well known. If a person can't pay their bail, they must wait in jail until their court date. Months may go by, even years, simply because someone -- who has yet to be convicted any crime -- couldn't come up a few hundred dollars.
"It is a racist, backwards design that disproportionately punishes people color and the poor. Our goal is to draw attention to this pernicious cycle, and raise actual bail money for as many people as possible. "
