Proud To Swim Home: A Backporch Revolution Compilation for New Orleans
Backporch Revolution's first compilation, and a benefit CD for Musicares and other groups providing relief to victims of Hurricane Katrina.

Available November 14th worldwide in finer record stores, "Proud To Swim Home" is a call-to-arms, meditation, and elegy wrapped in one; expressions from New Orleans' sound alchemists, some well-known and some unheard before.

This is not your typical compilation, it stands alone as a soundtrack to the Crescent City's struggle to recover from the worst natural disaster to hit the United States, while showcasing its vibrant experimental underground.

This conceptual piece worked up by potpie and alec vance is based on Steve Reich's work in the 60's with tape loops notably "It's Gonna Rain" and "Come Out" where multiple loops of the same sample were placed on tape machines which would slowly drift out of phase with each other and produce unexpected syncopations, cancellations and syllabic illusions. This will be the ultimate "hidden" track on the Proud to Swim Home compilation that Backporch Revolution will release on 8/29/2006, the one-year anniversary of Hurricane Katrina.
