So there has been a lot of pre-release hype for a new compilation called, Dark Was the Night. It's a Red Hot compilation, which means all the proceeds benefit AIDS relief. If that's not reason enough for you to check it out, I should mention it's 2 discs, the music is over 2 hours long, almost every track is previously unreleased and it only cost me $12 at Waterloo. It's only $10 if you buy it online.
If you're still not convinced check out the artists featured on the comp:
Beach House (iTunes Version Only(?)),
Cat Power & Dirty Delta Blues,
Iron & Wine,
Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings,
My Brightest Diamond,
My Morning Jacket,
The New Pornographers,
Yo La Tengo
Check out a sample after the jump...
The quality on this video kind of sucks, but I wanted you to hear at least a version of one of the Grizzly Bear songs from the compilation:
