The first two tracks from the series are available now in the form of a song swap – Soccer Mommy covering the “I Think You’re Alright” single from Jay Som and a Jay Som covering “Lucy” from Soccer Mommy’s 2020 full-length color theory. Both are fascinating new takes on one another’s songs.
Future contributions to the series are expected from MGMT’s Andrew VanWyngarden, Beabadoobee and Beach Bunny. Financial proceeds from the album go to Oxfam’s COVID-19 relief fund; an undertaking focused on “vulnerable communities and supporting people’s basic food needs and livelihoods.” As if that wasn’t enough great news, an anonymous donor will match those proceeds up to $5k, doubling the impact of the effort.
The tracks are available on the various streaming platforms but if you’ve got the $8 to purchase it on Bandcamp, please do so.
