Various Artists – Sunday, Someday [Eco Mix Vinyl] – New LP
Sunday, Someday is a compilation album created by a group of like-minded friends and musicians from the UK, Pennsylvania, and Los Angeles. They began meeting virtually every Sunday from April 2020 onward after the tour they were supposed to go on together was cancelled due to the pandemic.
The group is comprised of the alt/punk band Nervus (UK), the pop/rock trio Potty Mouth (LA), the indie/folk/punk songwriter KOJI (PA), the singer/songwriter Solstice Rey (PA), the multimedia artist Full on Mone’t (PA), as well as crew members who would have been on the tour. They decided to put together a record to fund top surgery and aftercare for a member of the group while raising awareness about systemic oppression of QTPOC community members.
The group wants to acknowledge the history of organizing and social movements, and how creative communities can go about the work of community care and mutual aid. In order to manifest liberated futures, they must be imagined—and this group has provided space for their collective imagination, with this record as a result.
“This is not a record of and for the music industry,” says KOJI. “This record is a celebration of living in community and a project that asks what world is possible when everyone’s needs are met?”
“It’s exciting to work on something with people I feel so connected to and understood by,” says Abby Weems (Potty Mouth). “This release is an opportunity for all of us to use our collective passions, skills, and resources to support each other as artists and as people with our own personal needs.”
“We’re in a space where we gather on a regular basis, even though we’re separated geographically,” says Koji of the group. “But our relationality isn’t institutional. It’s loving and reciprocal. And we’re able to inhabit ourselves more fully than we are in other music spaces that we’ve experienced.”
