Featuring the likes of Hamilton Leithauser (covering an Irish standard made famous by Shane McGowan), Mac DeMarco and Heems, the compilation features a mix of new music and cover versions (John Vanderslice takes on Radiohead's "Karma Police") with proceeds going to benefit the work of Unity Productions Foundation, a nationally recognised nonprofit educational organisation that specialises in combating Islamophobia.

San Francisco duo The Dodos have contributed new track "Mirror Fake" to the project; returning to the simple sound that marked the band's earlier work, the song powers along on Logan Kroeber's cyclical drum patterns, while Meric Long agitated, finger-picked guitar shifts the melody back and forth. Harmonies echo, mixing a foreboding melancholy with a sense of hopefulness to be found in the stirring "whoops" which pepper the song.

Philia: Artists Rise Against Islamophobia is out 18 August via Portland's Floating House Recordings. You can pre-order the album now on Bandcamp and as it's for a very good cause we recommend you do that.
