Usually chairty compilations have one or two songs you want and the rest is all filler, but it looks like there is an epic compilation about to be released that does not disappoint. Dark Was the Night is a charity compilation that will benefit the Red Hot Organization, an international charity dedicated to raising funds and awareness for HIV and AIDS. The compilation was produced by Aaron and Bryce Dessner of The National with John Carlin, who is the fouder of the Red Hot Organization.
They have managed to amass a who’s who of the indie rock world, and there is a total of 32 exclusive tracks recorded for the compilation. It will be released as a double cd, triple vinyl and download album on Feb 17th. You can stream some of the songs from the compliation here.
