Muruch is curating a nonprofit, digital album of music, spoken word poetry and art to benefit RAINN, the Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network organization and National Sexual Assault helpline founded by singer Tori Amos.
Once upon a time The Dresden Dolls’ images and lyrics were Muruch’s layout and this was my theme song (still is)…
Spectacular cover of one of my favorite songs…
Canadian singer Alessia Cara layers R&B vocals over a sample of Portishead’s “Glory Box.”
I’m so excited and honored to add Amanda Palmer and Neil Gaiman to Muruch’s RAINN Benefit Album tracklist!
Gaiman’s Sandman comics helped me through a dark time 15 years ago, around the time I first started sharing music on Muruch. And longtime readers are well aware of my obsessive love for Amanda Palmer’s band The Dresden Dolls, whose image and lyrics were once part of Muruch’s layout.
Our growing list of contributors also includes Concrete Blonde’s Johnette Napolitano, Hannah Fury, Elysian Fields and Heidi Saperstein. My first release as producer/curator is going to be my new favorite album and help a very dear, very worthy cause. The album’s liner notes will also include some incredible artwork by Amber Ortolano.
We’re still accepting images, spoken word poetry and music submissions until June 15th. See the benefit post for details.
Time to dust off Muruch’s old Demented Circus genre! Fans of The Dresden Dolls, Tiger Lillies, Luminescent Orchestrii, Vermillion Lies and Vagabond Opera will love Fable Cry.
