The independent label Waxploitation has created an awesome line up of indie artists for the CD entitled “Causes 1″. 100% of the proceeds will go to three non-profits helping the population of Darfur: Doctors Without Borders, Human Rights Watch, and Oxfam America.
The CD is limited edition only, and the music will only be available on iTunes for 90 days – creators of the CD wish to highlight the urgency of the situation in Darfur. “Causes 1″ was released November 27.
Maybe it’s just because I LOVE Bloc Party and Bright Eyes, but I’m really excited about this album. You better believe it’s on the Christmas list.
