Trophy Lungs releases benefit comp for Black Lives Matter

Posted by johng on Monday, December 22, 2014 at 11:00 AM (EST)
Trophy Lungs Trophy Lungs has released a mixtape benefitting Black Lives Matter. The tape includes tracks from Banquets, Defeater, Elway, Pulling Punches, Victory Boy, and others. The band described the release as:
"The Solidarity Mixtape is a benefit mixtape involving as many bands as possible across the country to help raise money for Black Lives Matter. Although current events have helped push the issue into the spotlight, there has always been racism in the justice system and I don't think we need to explain how necessary change is. The Mission of Black Lives Matter is to affirm and embrace the resistance and resilience of Black people. Black Lives Matter is working for a world where Black lives are no longer systematically and intentionally targeted for demise. The album is listed as "pay what you want" so please donate what you can. After two weeks we will take 100% of the proceeds and donate them to Black Lives Matter. Thank you for being part of this. "

According to Michaels, the film is "VERY loosely patterned after "girls" / "sex in the city" / eighties sit coms. 3 women move to the city only to encounter street scum. What will they do? The answer will terrify, disgust, shock and ultimately arouse you." It also features a Lovin' Spoonful-inspired theme song performed by Michaels.
