HC4L034 To Languish - Sawn LP 12" (2020)

Words from Missed Out Records :  " When I was contacted by Jonna and Cauli and heard their music/message I knew I wanted to help. They messaged me saying "we are two transgirls from Sweden and France that are making important music about the struggles to be able to thrive in this world as transgender/lgbtqia+" and proceeded to show me their band To Languish and their new album Sown. It's an extremely powerful and important record and I wanted to be involved. We agreed on a limited edition cassette pressing and that all proceeds would go to No More Dysphoria
We’re a queer-run 501(c)3 non profit with the goal of helping trans + non-binary individuals financially through major aspects of their transitions. We aim to help in any way possible, whether it be donating a binder or helping fund Hormone Replacement Therapy (along with anything and everything in between).
The world needs more compassion, love, acceptance and inclusion. Music is a fantastic way to help spread such messages and make an impact on this fucked up world. Thanks for listening and know that your donation will be put to good use ❤ "
