Our favorite New Orleans radio station (by far) is WTUL. This year the challenges facing the nonprofit station are immense; in addition to the usual annual fundraising needs, 'TUL has been forced to temporarily operate out of a local coffee shop due to Hurricane Katrina (that bitch).
Backporch Revolution has 3 artists who will be appearing on the 2 CD compilation (which will also feature many well-known national underground acts):
- Chef Menteur's brand new collaboration with Alexandra Scott, "Oceanic no. 23",
- the debut release from BpR cult/ensemble Archipelago called "the earth moves five ways",
- a hidden track from a mystery BpR artist
Look for it soon and support WTUL during its annual Marathon!
