Exclusive new track for Japan recovery benefit.

Spring 2011

"Of You (Before 2082" is a new track I wrote for the Recovery In Japan benefit album out NOW on Fina-Music/Thrill Jockey. Also featuring Tim Hecker, Fennesz, Oren Ambarchi, Ben Frost, Lawrence English, Tape, Giant Sand, Grouper and many more.

Please spend $15 (that is about £10.00/11 Euros) and you get over 4.5 hours worth of amazing music. I wrote this track for the people of japan who have suffered or been affected in a profound way by the devastation that occured there on March 11th. Peace. Simon- March 2011.

*"100% of the proceeds from the sale of this compilation will go directly towards the recovery and relief effort. The album features the contributions of sixty-four artists from around the world and clocks in at nearly five hours of music".

"As the crisis continues to unfold and the full scope of the disaster becomes even more apparent, our sisters and brothers in Japan face many challenges: both the immediate needs—provisions for food, water, shelter, and healthcare—as well as the long term recovery and rebuilding efforts in the impacted communities. The ripple effects of the earthquake and resulting tsunami will be felt for years to come. Benefit for the Recovery in Japan was created with the goal of providing immediate and tangible aid in the relief, recovery, and rebuilding that will take place over the coming days, months, and years".

"The people of Japan need your help now, and your purchase of this music is one way to connect with and provide assistance to the people in Japan working to recover from this disaster. 100% of the proceeds from your purchase of this release will go to the Japanese emergency response organization Civic Force—thereby helping support real work happening on the ground by Japanese-based relief workers".

Benefit for the Recovery in Japan is curated by Antiopic's David Daniell and James Elliott, with invaluable assistance from Regina Greene (Front Porch Productions), Greg Davis, and Bettina Richards (Thrill Jockey). Greg Davis mastered the compilation and Sadek Bazaraa designed the cover art. This release is made possible by the generosity of Thrill Jockey and all of the artists involved.
