Alright everyone. Since I made a mistake this morning ordering my copy of the Give Seattle Compilation, and ordered 2 accidentally. We will be giving away 1 download code to one lucky reader. To be entered in the random drawing for this really cool compilation, all you have to do is leave a comment with one of your favourite albums of the year, one of your favourite songs of the year, and in the Christmas spirit your favourite traditional Christmas song/carol. So, make sure you forward this link on to everyone you know, and leave a comment and we will be giving the download code away this Friday.
A little about the compilation from the website:
A full 100 percent of sales will go directly to GIVE beneficiaries.
The $7 compilation – conceived and initiated by Caffé Vita, which is producing, curating and funding the project – will be available online as well as in Caffé Vita shops, Easy Street Records, Sonic Boom Records, University Book Store, The Crocodile EMP, and Neumos. These outlets will carry GIVE packages, including physical cards with a redemption code for the download, as ready-to-give presents.
GIVE is a snapshot of the incredible creativity and diversity that defines Seattle’s music community in 2009. Among the musicians who have contributed tracks, nearly all of which are exclusive to GIVE, are hip-hop artists D. Black, Fatal Lucciauno, Champagne Champagne, Fresh Espresso and Mad Rad; modern folk bands Fleet Foxes and The Cave Singers; country-influenced players The Moondoggies, The Maldives and Sera Cahoone; rock ‘n’ roll outfits Visqueen, Tea Cozies, The Blakes and The Lonely Forest; singer-songwriters Ben Gibbard of Death Cab for Cutie, David Bazan, Joshua Morrison and Fences; and indie pop acts The Duchess and The Duke, The Long Winters and Pica Beats.
Additional musicians include: Arthur & Yu, Common Market, Grand Archives, Head Like a Kite, Hey Marseilles, Kinski, Le Loup, Gabriel Mintz, Mt. St. Helens Vietnam Band, Pearly Gate Music, The Saturday Knights, Talbot Tagora, Throw Me the Statue, J. Tillman and Unnatural Helpers.
