nyc noisecore

recently referred to some musician friends (who i def over-post) & sam “sam” hafferty promptly responded, “oh, right: nyc noisecore” // lol, but i also like “cores” –– as community, not exclusivity –– & it was a good reminder that the thing i’m best at is shamelessly & transparently promoting my own taste & friends ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ // this page = links to buy music from &/or donate to artists on @nyc_noise insta (so far, just listing some ppl i’ve posted at least 3x) // keep checking in + submit releases to be added to full bandcamp roundup.

also now have NYC NOISE STUFF I LIKE compilations (yes thank u it is a profound name!), & all june proceeds go to COVID BAIL OUT NYC // they’re great, & along w/ bailing medically-vulnerable Black & brown ppl outta rikers, they also offer great post-release support; i’ve posted bail for them 2x (all you can do per month) @ the brooklyn detention center by issue project room & they make it v easy for you :D // ppl on the comps are ALSO great, i mean ffs look at those lineups!! // for ~full transparency~ i’m including bandcamp payouts here (updating every 2-3 days; as of 6/16, $552.57) & will post all receipts for payments to them end o’month! :D
