AUSTRALIAN BUSHFIRE FUNDRAISER - PAY WHAT YOU CAN
The latest instalment in our label compilation series, Marks Of Provenance III, is being released as a fundraiser to support recovery efforts for the Australian bushfire emergency. The label is based in the NSW Blue Mountains region, where the Gospers Mountains fire has burned over half-a-million hectares. The fire combined with others on the NSW Central Coast to create a blaze which has been described as the largest single ignition-point forest fire recorded in Australia.
All proceeds from the 14-track compilation will go directly to those affected by the Australian bushfire emergency via the Fire Relief Fund for First Nations Communities. The fund has been established by First Nations musician Neil Morris, in direct consultation with, and upon the request of, fire-affected First Nations communities, including those who have lost their homes and been forced to evacuate to other regions.
Marks Of Provenance III features fourteen exclusive tracks of new Australian music, embracing a wide spectrum of genres from avant-pop and psych-folk to modular electronics and new wave experimentalism.
The album includes new work from the current Provenance family including Sebastian Field, Aphir, Kris Keogh, Shoeb Ahmad, Ahm, Paneye, Arrom and KAIAR, alongside several new family members, including Saint-Leon, Scattered Order, Broken Chip, Lack the Low, cilt and Youtube yoga - many of whom will be releasing new material on Provenance in 2020.
