‘Land Trust: Benefit for NEFOC’ is released June 3 on Bandcamp and all funds raised will go towards Northeast Farmers Of Colour Land Trust.

“This is the very, very rare benefit album where no one just sent in some crappy B-side,” Hanna said in a statement. “All the songs are fucking great and the performers really put their hearts into it. It’s a testament to Erica and Vice doing a phenomenal job bringing people together.” Listen to ‘Mirrorball’ below.

LAND TRUST: BENEFIT FOR NEFOC by Erica Dawn Lyle + Vice Cooler

The project started during COVID after Bikini Kill’s 2020 tour was postponed.“People were trying to figure out how to help each other,” Lyle said. “I thought ‘all the musicians are home right now. It would probably be easy for us to do something quickly—because everybody, everywhere, is trying to find a way to help’.”

Once the pair had twelve demos for the planned benefit record, they started reaching out to possible collaborators. “Working on these songs everyday with Vice—and the hope that others would work with us—was like an anchor for me during that really difficult era,” Lyle said.

The finished record includes tracks with The Linda Lindas, Kim Gordon and Phoebe Bridgers’ bassist Emily Retsas and was described by Lyle as “this all-ages show for feminist rockers.”
