Music With a Cause: Indie Artists Make Music to Fight HIV/AIDS

The proceeds from the sales of this album Dark Was The Night, featuring original music by some of the most-played musicians on my iPod right now, will benefit the Red Hot Organization, an international charity that raises money and awareness for HIV and AIDS through pop culture.

The album is full of amazing, spanking-new music from some of the best independent music acts around. The compilation was produced by Aaron and Bryce Dessner of The National, and includes songs by artists like Bon Iver, Grizzly Bear, Yeasayer, The Decemberists, Arcade Fire, Yo La Tengo, Cat Power, and Andrew Bird. That's just the tip of the iceberg, though, as there are 31 tracks in all.

If you're interested in getting involved with this cause beyond buying the album, click here for further details. You can listen to a Feist-Ben Gibbard duet and a few other songs off the album if you

It is a great album and for the proceeds to go a worthy cause like fighting HIV is wonderful! This is how we can change the world.   My band has been in the studio too, we are trying raise money to help an orphanage in Haiti. The people who started the school built it on a mountain (rather central for people in the valley) want to build a dorm so the girls don't have a 2 hour mountain climb to get to school every day. One of our members went to Haiti in January 2012, to help clear a part of the mountain (with hand tools!) to start the foundation. We hope people will help us out and share the story! http://www.theshroudofgaia.com/foundations for more info!   Let's change the world!!! :)
