Song of the Day: United Harvest Workers Union - Compassion

By in News, Song of The Day | No Comments

This folk-punk band was formed as a sort of atypical worship band. Their purpose was to create “authentic church music devoid of hype.” Hailing from Pittsburgh, the band features members of Last Hope and Timbre, its roots firmly embedded in the punk scene. Their one and only album was self-released in 2010, but saw a digital re-release in 2019 via Zap Records (home of 2 Minute Minor, Voice of the Mysterons, October Bird of Death, and others).

I reviewed the album in 2019, here, and really enjoyed it. “Compassion” is a slow burn, and quite dark musically. It sounds like a great song for a movie soundtrack to one of those detective shows set in the backwoods somewhere.
