Power Puerto Rico is a 43-track collection of new music benefiting Hurricane Maria relief in Puerto Rico, compiled by softcoresoft and anabasine, two members of the Montreal collective Lagom. It contains new music from artists like UMFANG, Event Cloak, and Jesse Osborne-Lanthier, and many more emerging artists from Montreal and around the world. Buy it here for $12.
100% of the proceeds from Power Puerto Rico will be donated to The Hurricane Maria Community Relief & Recovery Fund, which is prioritizing aid and recovery efforts in areas most severely affected by the storm.
In a press release, the curators described their belief that artists should face the issues of the world head on: “We believe we have a role in creating a better future world through music, and hope this compilation can be a small help in redistributing resources to those who need them most. Making music in a vacuum in 2017 makes no sense.”
