We’ve been sitting on this bit for a few days now, but the album officially went up for sale only hours ago, so let’s spread the word: Caffé Vita, a coffee shop with four locations in Seattle and one in Olympia, WA, is releasing a compilation album with over 30 Seattle-based artists to benefit Arts Corp and numerous food banks.
For $7, you get the following tracks, plus six more songs (see below) that are still being recorded and will be emailed at a later date.
Among the to be recorded/released batch are contributions from Death Cab’s Ben Gibbard, Pedro the Lion’s David Bazan, the Dutchess and The Duke, the Long Winters, Throw Me The Statue, and Unnatural Helpers. The song title of Gibbard’s track has not been officially announced, but Sound On The Sound reports that it will be a cover of Neil Young’s “Harvest Moon,” which he has performed live on numerous occasions.
Looks like an awesome compilation for a great cause, so go buy it here.
