Waxahatchee and Kevin Morby have shared a pair of covers, taking on Broadcast’s ‘Tears in the Typing Pool’ and Guided by Voices’ ‘The Goldheart Mountaintop Queen Directory’. All proceeds will go to the Vote No Kansas PAC, which aims to prevent the “Value Them Both” amendment from passing. If passed, the amendment would allow the state legislature to outlaw abortion entirely in Kansas. Check out both tracks via Bandcamp below.
“With the overturning of Roe v. Wade, the state of Kansas, where we live, has become a really important haven for bordering states in the fight for access to reproductive healthcare,” the couple wrote in a joint statement. “There’s an amendment to the state constitution in the upcoming election that would put abortion rights at risk. We’re asking Kansas folks to vote no on this amendment in the August 2nd election and we’re supporting Vote No Kansas, an amazing local organization raising awareness about this issue. We record covers on a 4-track at home from time to time, so we’re releasing 2 of those today on Bandcamp. It’s a sliding scale starting at $5 and all funds raised will go directly to Vote No Kansas.”
