Published Jun 22, 2017Mac DeMarco, Heems, Hamilton Leithauser and more have contributed music to a new compilation in the name of combatting Islamophobia.
The compilation, titled Philia: Artists Rise Against Islamophobia, will arrive August 19 through Floating House. The release also features work from Fruit Bats, the Dodos, John Vanderslice, Vetiver, Emel Mathlouthi, Small Leaks Sink Ships, Khruangbin and Drop Electric.
As Pitchfork reports, proceeds from vinyl and digital releases of the comp will go towards anti-Islamophobia non-profit Unity Productions Foundation.
"According to the Department of Justice, incidents of bullying, discrimination and hate crimes towards American Muslims and those perceived to be Muslim have dramatically increased over the past year," a press release reads. "Named after the Greek word for brotherly love, Philia aims to connect people through music and the arts, to promote the ideals of civic love and respect across America."
