New Tunes on 6/19/20

New music and an interview for you today, with a live performance!
Juneteenth—Bandcamp Donating Proceeds to NAACP LDF. From their blog post: “So this this coming Juneteenth (June 19, from midnight to midnight PDT) and every Juneteenth hereafter, for any purchase you make on Bandcamp, we will be donating 100% of our share of sales to the NAACP Legal Defense Fund, a national organization that has a long history of effectively enacting racial justice and change through litigation, advocacy, and public education. We’re also allocating an additional $30,000 per year to partner with organizations that fight for racial justice and create opportunities for people of color.” Good stuff.

New Escaper Album Out Today. We’ve mentioned this band before—new album out today called Apotheosis. The Brooklyn-based groove and space band has a new album out today. Check it out.

Grayson Capps Interview and Live Performance! We have an interview with Grayson and he plays a live acoustic tune. It’s called South Front Street,” a 16-song retrospective—compiled by his wife, Grammy-winning producer/engineer, Trina Shoemaker. You’ll hear him talk about the album and then he plays and sings us an acoustic tune. Let’s get into it.

I mentioned earlier that this is Juneteenth, which celebrates the ending of slavery in Texas in 1865. This has grown into the longest running African-American holiday, often called America’s second Independence Day.
