Dark was the Night

"Dark was the Night" is a compilation that comes out today, its produced by The National's Aaron and Bryce Dessner. It has some of my favorite and inspiring musicians. Proceeds go to the Red Hot Organization– an international charity dedicated to raising money and awareness for HIV and AIDS through popular culture.

Artists include: Andrew Bird, Antony, Arcade Fire, Beach House, Beirut, Blonde Redhead, Bon Iver, The Books, Buck 65, David Byrne, Cat Power & Dirty Delta Blues, The Decemberists, Aaron Dessner, Bryce Dessner, Devastations, Dirty Projectors, Kevin Drew, Feist, Ben Gibbard, Grizzly Bear, Iron & Wine, Jose Gonzalez, Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings, Kronos Quartet, Stuart Murdoch, My Brightest Diamond, My Morning Jacket, The National, The New Pornographers, Conor Oberst, Riceboy Sleeps, Serengeti, Dave Sitek, Spoon, Sufjan Stevens, Gillian Welch, Yeasayer, Yo La Tengo.

Really worth getting and for a good cause. Buy it off of iTunes or Amazon.

Here are some of my favorite songs on the album and I've been waiting a while for this album to come.
