Dark Was The Night – Great CD for a Great Cause

My friend Julie Penner turned me onto a great CD recently – Dark Was the Night.

It includes a who’s who list of indie rock including: Andrew Bird, Arcade Fire, Bon Iver, David Byrne, Cat Power, The Decemberists, Feist, Jose Gonzalez, Grizzly Bear, Iron & Wine, My Morning Jacket, The National, The New Pornographers, Spoon, Sufjan Stevens, Gillian Welch, Yeasayer, Yo La Tengo and others.  The Red Hot website also let me pick out three of the tunes from the CD to make a widget.  (I will admit that I’m a bit biased toward Topspin artists, but these are all great tracks).

All the proceeds from the project go to AIDS prevention and awareness. 

  • Love the CDs too — bought it for the new Sufjan song but there's several other gems on there as well — I hope that there are more collaborations like this in the future….these are the types of things that actually get me to purchase music!
