So Far Around The Bend
The Red Hot Organization has been using art and rock music to raise money to fight AIDS for 20 years, and its latest fund-raising compilations, Dark Was The Night, features two discs of great songs by the A-team of indie rock musicians, including CSD favorites Arcade Fire, The National, The New Pornographers, My Morning Jacket, Fiest, David Byrne, and Spoon, among others. I recommend it highly, and proceeds go to just about the best cause there is. You can click on the icon in the right-hand column of this blog to order a copy for yourself, but, in the meantime, enjoy the National's contribution: a great new song entitled "So Far Around the Bend."
