We're taking a break from our break for a brief announcement: record label Thrill Jockey is donating 100% of the proceeds of certain titles in their library to Peace Winds and Civic Force, which are among the recovery efforts in the troubled nation. Here are links to these groups (in case you want to learn more, or directly donate):
And now, onto the music slant of this story. The first link is to an MP3 compilation by David Daniell/ Antiopic Records, with a whopping 64 tracks of great music! All for $15! That's like three discs of music for (and all of it goes to those organizations above).
Some of these bands include Nat Baldwin of the Dirty Projectors, Giant Sand, and School of Seven Bells, who made it onto our year-end list (so definitely not lightweights).
Moreover, Boredoms and OOIOO will be donating the dough from these discs:
BOREDOMS - Super Roots 9 - http://www.thrilljockey.com/catalog/index.html?id=102475
OOIOO - Taiga - http://www.thrilljockey.com/catalog/index.html?id=100441
