This is a DIY operation that my friend Seleke Sesay has been running by himself for some time now, collecting truckloads of clothes and books and shipping them to his hometown mostly on his own dime. Freight is very expensive and he needs all the help he can get.

If you’re in the Philadelphia area and would like to donate clothes, shoes, and books directly you can email me at keith@humankindnessoverflowing.org.

Here is Seleke with one of the shipments he’s already sent as well as some pictures from his last trip:

Exorcism Drops Today!

Exorcism is finally released today! You can download it from the HKO bandcamp or get the Cassette from Crash Symbols. Either way the large majority of your money is going towards feeding low income Philadelphians at risk of malnutrition of which %23 are children. 

This album was created over the course of 10 or so months where I was in and out of the hospital with various illnesses. The palette for the production of this album was a result of being too fatigued to get up and play my instruments most of the time. I had a cassette player that could play in reverse into my sampler, and a big box of cassettes that I’d found at thrift stores over the years. So I arranged a good deal of this album while laying in bed with an Sp-404

This album also has a b-side of remixes for all but one track. I personally think the remix side turned out better than the EP itself. Lushlife, Botany, Melting Season, Spirituals, and Golden Ages each made breathtaking reinterpretations. If you aren’t familiar with any of these dudes then you are missing out.

I hope you enjoy! The kind words and generous donations so far have truly warmed my heart. 


Lushlife remixes Power Animal

Philadelphia’s own Lushlife has graced our EP with a mind blowing remix that premiered on International Tapes today! You may recognize the original track which was featured on Altered Zones a hot minute ago. This song also features vox from HKO co-founder Paul North aka Sunnybrook!

HUMAN KINDNESS OVERFLOWING: Exorcism

hkorecs:

February 21st will mark the next HKO release “Exorcism” by Power Animal. This charitable release will be raising money for Philabundance, a Philadelphia based food bank. Listen to the title track here via No Fear Of Pop, as well as the Spirituals remix which premiered on FADER today!…

….and we’re back.

This has been one of the interweb sites of Power Animal that I have neglected for the past year or so. A lot of things have changed in that time, none of which has been documented here but rather here and also here. That being said I’m bout to get all up in dis mofo. Stay tuned.
