In early March 2011, Japan suffered one of the largest earthquakes in recorded history,
a tsunami which devastated its northern coast, and a nuclear disaster the scope of
which is still not fully understood.
23 artists including of Montreal, St. Vincent, Deerhoof, Xiu Xiu, David Bazan,
Joan of Arc, Owen, Casiokids, STRFKR, and many more spent the past several
months entering the studio and going through their song archives to donate songs to
this compilation in an effort to aid the victims of the tsunami and the negligence which
led to the disaster that continues to affect Japan.
In addition, a handful of local bands from Champaign-Urbana (Polyvinyl’s hometown),
Tulsa, and San Francisco agreed to be on the compilation and will be organizing benefit
shows in their respective areas.
All profits from sales of this benefit album will be donated to the American Red Cross to
support the International Red Cross in their ongoing relief efforts.
LP is strictly limited to 2000 copies. There will be no repress.
