good music for a good cause

Thursday, April 2, 2009

I know I'm a little slow on the uptake with this one but my excuse is that I was out of the country for a few weeks...
Anyways, if you hate HIV/AIDS but love good music you should probably buy this year's Dark Was The Night charity compilation. Proceeds benefit the Red Hot Organization, which has been fighting AIDS through pop culture/music since 1989. Find out more about Red Hot here. So for a measly $13 you get 2 CD's of really great music (there's also a triple-vinyl option....which is pretty sweet) and you help support a good organization. Here are some of my faves from it...3 of which are covers...There are actually quite a few pretty decent covers in this compilation, but I digress. Here's the music:
Cello Song - The Books feat. Jose Gonzalez
Train Song - Feist + Ben Gibbard
Inspiration Information - Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings
The Giant of Illinois - Andrew Bird
and because I'm currently battling a significant Bon Iver obsession his track from the compilation...
Bracket, WI
