Today we're proud to announce Merce Lemon's debut album Moonth, out August 14th, 2020 on Darling Recordings and Crafted Sounds.

Here's what Merce had to say:
Hey everyone, today I am announcing my debut album. This has been a long time in the making with so many incredible people who have helped me bring it to life.
That being said, I want to direct energy and attention to the movement for Black liberation and the dismantling of oppressive systems that were designed to uphold white supremacy from the start. As a white queer person I'm reflecting on how the "white supremacist delusion"* is a part of my DNA, and has benefitted me in all aspects of my life including as a musician in the indie scene.
Here's a link to anti-racist resources for white people put together by 'Finding Freedom: White Women Taking On Our Own White Supremacy'.
100% of the profit from this release will be going to a Pittsburgh-based community organization that will be announced soon.
