Sylvan Esso, Ryley Walker, Strand of Oaks, William Tyler, Vetiver, Chris Forsyth and more have contributed to a full album cover of Phish's Farmhouse that will benefit pandemic relief for the live music industry. It's called Cluster Flies and will be out April 30 via JamBase. JamBase's David Onigma, who conceived the project, writes:

In July of last year, as it became clear the COVID-19 pandemic would have a devastating impact on the live music industry. I tasked the team to come up with an idea that we could rally around in place of live music and to raise lost revenues for JamBase. Rather than a standard fundraiser, the Cluster Flies project was conceived, and we soon reached out to an incredible group of musicians who graciously jumped at the opportunity to support JamBase. What happened over the last nine months outperformed even my wildest of expectations. I’m elated with how the performances, the artwork, the packaging, the mastering and the podcasts we are going to be launching daily came together. It’s a collection of work I am extremely proud of and honored to share with the world.
