*Sigh*...and Dark Was the Night
Well, I'm still waiting on those interviews so I guess this is another slow week, but hopefully I'll have something within a few days, so be sure to tune in every couple days this week.
As for music, I just started listening to the Dark Was the Night compilation album, featuring duets from famous artists such as Feist with Ben Gibbard, Jose Gonzalez with The Books, the Dirty Projectors with David Byrne, and many more. The album is a benefit for the Red Hot Organization, an international charity dedicated to raising funds and awareness for HIV and AIDS. I must say, I'm thoroughly impressed with both the organization and the record. None of the artists felt like they were "phoning it in." Each song feels like a true effort at creating something amazing and worthy of the cause they're promoting. It's comprised of two discs plus a bonus track if you buy it through iTunes (a cover of Queen's Play the Game by Beach House).
For more information on the compilation and the Red Hot Organization, be sure to check out the official site:
