Anarcho-cassette distro / label worldbuilders Industrial Coast put together a stunning / stacked 17 track comp of underground electronics raising money for the Centre for Human Rights in Iran.
The story may have left the news headlines, but the protests and deaths continue in the search for justice for Jina Mahsa Amini's family, and women in Iran in general (and fuck it, the globe).
To that end, Women Invented Noise Vol II is a call to arms for the wider community, and a show of solidarity, strength and creativity from the non-males music makers involved. This ain't another bodged together Bandcamp-only look-at-me fundraiser though - it's a standalone 'global scene' comp of depth and power that's properly curated for maximum illumination and discovery in & around noise / drone / industrial / ambient / electro-acoustics / sound art / coldwave / IDM / weirdo stylings.
Highlights (if we had to pick) include: Nail Club's grotty lofi squarewave synthpop, an absolute stunner from our fav modern darkwave/EBM human Bestial Mouths, brooding piano-based dronalities from Manchester's Jo Montgomerie, Permanent's hard jacking techno meets bedroom synth euphoria, Emily Berregaard's dreamy spoken word slide guitar confessional.
Do good, press play, blessed are the music makers, fuck the gatekeepers, morality police and Iranian state.
Edition of 100. Tape-only. Last copies right here.

100% of profit to Centre for Human Rights Iran.
