Some of Australia’s most illustrious indie labels have banded together to release Thirty Days of Yes!, a mixtape for marriage equality.
The release is a subscription-based mixtape “developed in response to the Australian Marriage Law Postal Survey, to drive the ‘Yes’ message and show support for the LGBTIQ+ community, particularly the youth community who don’t have a voice in this public debate.” All of the proceeds will go to LGBTIQ+ Youth organisations, Minus18 and Twenty10.

Kicking it all off will be Melbourne slackers Twerps with an unreleased track called It’s Time.
Recorded during the band’s sessions for their 2015 album Range Anxiety, ex-bassist Rick Milovanovic (who wrote the track) explains;
“‘It’s Time’ was written in 2013 during the rise of the Abbott era. The song was a reminder to him and his party that they would not be speaking on behalf of all straight Australians. Most importantly, it was also a message of support to the LGBTIQ+ community, that a lot of straight Australians would be right by their side in the fight for equality in this country.”
The Thirty Days of Yes mixtpae is available for $15 with an option to pay more. Get it on Bandcamp now.
