Help Kickstart an Arthur Russell Tribute Album Featuring Twin Shadow, Robyn, Jose Gonzalez and More

Thu, 09 Aug 2012 13:01:26

 

 

Arthur Russell was a cellist, composer and singer-songwriter, who lived and worked in the East Village in New York City from the 1970s until his untimely death from AIDS-related causes in 1992. Arthur created genre-defying music spanning folk, rock, dance, and experimental.  His work was admired and supported by artist peers such as Allen Ginsberg, Philip Glass, Nicki Siano and David Byrne in his lifetime, although he was largely underground and not well known.  Two decades after his death, Russell's groundbreaking and unique sound has grown to be a seminal influence on contemporary music.

Red Hot Organization (the team responsible for the Dark Was the Night compilation) together with Pitchfork are getting a little Kickstarter-able assistance to fund This Is How We Walk on the Moon, a tribute to Arthur Russell, which will feature the likes of Twin Shadow, Robyn, Devendra Banhart, Olof Arnalds, Rubblebucket and many others on this incredible project. Their goal is $50,000, with an end date of Saturday, September 8. We think they'll make it.
