TVD Radar: Talk – Action = Zero Vol. 2 compilation to benefit Spread The Vote available today via Bandcamp

VIA PRESS RELEASE | Independent artists from around the world have come together once again to create Talk – Action = Zero Vol. 2: a political action project curated and organized by Bank Robber Music and Rough Trade Publishing. The compilation album will be available exclusively on Bandcamp on Friday, August 28th and all proceeds will benefit Spread the Vote.

The first volume of Talk – Action = Zero paid tribute to the countless Black Americans who have been murdered due to police brutality, with all proceeds benefiting Black Visions Collective. With a pivotal election on the horizon, Volume 2 highlights the importance of voting and empowering citizens to be heard at the polls. It features over 45 unreleased songs including the debut of Sunroof (Daniel Miller and Gareth Jones), and Repressed, a new collaborative project featuring Kurt Wagner (Lambchop), Mac McCaughan (Superchunk), Phil Morrison, Sarah Louis and Sally Hanson (House of Land).

The compilation also features tracks from Matthew Caws of Nada Surf, Neal Francis, Jennifer O’Connor & Travis Stever, Gary V, LIP TALK & WooF WooF, NY HUSTLERS, LoneMoon, Say Hi, Alanna Royale, Power of Attorney, Roots & Tings, Karyn Kuhl, Pink Mountaintops, The Long Ryders and many more. A majority of the songs featured on the compilation are related to voting, the election or the current state of the country, whether covers or new original songs.

All proceeds will benefit Spread the Vote, a national foundation that helps US citizens and communities empower themselves to be heard at the polls and helping with voter IDs, registrations, education and turnout. “Spread The Vote is thrilled to be working with BankRobberMusic / Rough Trade Publishing on this incredible compilation,” says Spread the Vote founder Kat Calvin. “Music has always been critical for every movement and at this moment, we need great music that inspires us to stand up for our democracy more than ever.”

“This is easily the most consequential election of the last century and after our last compilation we knew we had to keep the momentum going by bringing our artist community together to help raise money for change,” says John Newcomer of Bank Robber Music and Rough Trade Publishing. “All proceeds will go directly to Spread The Vote which focuses on voter education as well as ensuring people that can vote are able to vote.”

The track list is comprised mostly of artists who work directly with Bank Robber Music and Rough Trade Publishing. Talk – Action = Zero Vol. 2 will be available exclusively through Bandcamp and will be released on Friday, August 28.
