Published Mar 30, 2009Following the recent comps Dark Was the Night and War Child Presents Heroes, another good-hearted charity-benefit collection is heading our way. Called Causes 2, it's the second instalment in Waxploitation's ongoing series, which has once again roped in a pile of big-name indie stars to help benefit the victims of the genocide in Darfur.
While the first Causes compilation in 2007 featured artists such as Animal Collective, Spoon, the Shins and Bright Eyes, this year's line-up is equally as impressive, and includes exclusive and rare tracks from LCD Soundsystem, Diplo, Gnarls Barkley, Neon Neon, the Decemberists, Devendra Banhart, My Morning Jacket, Matthew Dear and múm, among others. And along with getting your hands on some rad tunes, you get to help some great organizations, with all sales proceeds of Causes 2 going to Doctors Without Borders, Human Rights Watch and Oxfam America.
Causes 2 is due out on May 5 with this tracklisting:
1. Black Moth Super Rainbow: "Happy Melted City"
