Into The Light

A new triple-volume download-only album showcasing many of the world's best innovative and undiscovered bands has been curated by Dandelion Radio DJ Mark Whitby. A mammoth 54 tracks, showcasing a wide range of genres and styles, are collected together in a bandcamp-released compilation, with all proceeds going to the campaign to free Pussy Riot, the Russian band imprisoned for their protest against Vladimir Putin in a Russian Orthodox church.
The majority of tracks on the collection are exclusives, with the remainder mostly gathered together from 2012 releases championed by Mark in his Dandelion Radio show. They include the spiky punk of Leeds duo Flies On You, the spacey psychedelia of 93millionmilesfromthesun, the indie pop of The Spook School, the dark hip-hop of Social Studies, dub from Blaminack, krautrock from Vert:x and manic techno from Tactus.
Labels that have licensed tracks from the release include Daddy Tank, Into The Eye, Audio Antihero and Abaga, as well as the Liverpool music collective Free Rock & Roll.
All proceeds will be donated to The Pussy Riot Support Fund or, if they prefer, people can download the album for free and make a donation independently.
