This is very refreshing. A method of donating money for a good cause, allowing one community to strengthen while helping support another community in need.
As seen on the side of this blog under superior sources, Tome To The Weather Machine has clearly been there from the start. The person behind the blog, Ryan Hall has also created a music label called Heligator Records. This is a digital download only label with a wide array of artists. All proceeds from the downloads go to the Malindza Refugee Camp Library in Mpaka, Swaziland.
Clipd Beaks is the fourteenth release from Heligator Records. The sound is a definitive result of a curated style of music, finely polished and presented. Not that Clipd Beaks is that old, just their sound could be lost anywhere in time and be relevant at that moment. With this single release for Heligator Records, FKWRK starts of with some resemblance to "I Dreamed I Dream" of the first Sonic Youth album. The song changes immensely over its duration and ends with fervor and drive, an apogee of musical culmination.
Help support the library in Mpaka, Swaziland. Download the song for one dollar. If Clipd Beaks isn't your sound, check out Heligator Records for something you are in tune with.
