Headless Heroes’ The Silence of Love, the collections of lost classics and unearthed gems sung by emerging folk star Alela Diane, is out tomorrow, May 19.
In collaboration with Amie Street, 25% of all sales will benefit Housing Works, a New York City community-based not-for-profit organization committed to ending the twin crises of AIDS and homelessness.
This release marks the latest installment in AmieStreet.com’s Download To Make A Difference campaign, which has raised tens of thousands of dollars for Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, Food Bank for New York City, Mr. Holland’s Opus Foundation, and other organizations—by bringing together artists and charities to give fans more than one reason to pick up a new album.
"Two Fingers are Amon Tobin and Joe "Doubleclick" Chapman. The pair met when Tobin lived in Brighton and bonded over an interest in music that ran way beyond the boundaries of "electronica". Last year, while Tobin was living in Montreal, they began bouncing beats back and forth, trying to apply production techniques associated with UK styles like drum & bass to the template of hip hop. When they had a few tunes together they sent them to Sway. He was so taken with what they were doing, he flew straight out to Montreal and recorded seven tracks with them. The remaining rhythms were voiced by sometime Missy protégé Ms Jade and dancehall legend Cecile."
