I’m very excited to show you this side project from Asheville’s Anthony Thogmartin of @Papadosio. Two Saturdays ago I had the pleasure of seeing EarthCry open up for The Werks and Papadosio at the Music Farm in Charleston. I was immediately blown away by how enticing the sound being put out was, and how seamlessly Anthony was outwardly performing electronic music rather than just pressing play like many artists in the industry today. After seeing EarthCry perform, I immediately copped the album, “Hear the Earth, Heal Yourself – Heal the Earth, Hear Yourself”.
The back of the album reads, “This music was created for one solitary purpose: To Heal. Each work of the heart in this album was meticulously tuned to a tone in the ancient solfeggio scale. These frequencies are known to heal and aid the human condition.” Not only does each precise song express a healing tone, but 50% of the sale and touring proceeds of this astounding album go toward Groundswell International. This non-profit organization’s mission is simple, to “contribute to the global movement to overcome poverty, inequality and ecological destruction by supporting community-based organizations to work together to improve wellbeing, spread lasting solutions and engage in wider coalitions for change.” The people at Groundswell believe that “our global agricultural and food system is broken and needs to transition to one that is more sustainable and beneficial to the world’s population.” If you take a look around their gift catalog, you can see exactly where your money is going and how exactly it will benefit a community. The difference between this organization and any other is that this one does not focus solely on food security but also working to strengthen farmer’s networks and support women-led initiatives in attempts to fix broken institutions to actually better the community to a point where they will be able to self sustain.
This inspirational album is truly awesome and even if it weren’t entirely for a righteous cause I would recommend buying it. It is easily the most complete electronic album I have encountered to date, and it’s purchase can help better this Earth. Because of the not-for-profit nature of this movement, I have only included one of the tracks for listen. The rest can be previewed and purchased here. Don’t sleep on this one.
Based out of Nevada City, California, on The Polish Ambassador’s record label, this producer released this awesome album on October 2 at whatever price you’re willing to pay . Very upbeat and very easy to dance to, this whole album is a work of art. Filled with catchy guitar riffs and effective use of horns, this uplifting album is worth a listen. If you dig the sound of these featured tracks you can cop the whole thing here. Also included in this post is one of my favorite tracks from Polish off of his April 16 2011 release: Future, Sex, Computers. stay ^
