Causes 1: Darfur Benefit Compilation

Waxploitation, the label that's home to Gnarls Barkley and Dangerdoom, is releasing a compilation to benefit Darfur. You can sign up here to pre-order it on CD, or wait until November 27th to get it on iTunes. It'll be available for download for only 90 days to highlight the urgency of the situation.

The list of artists involved is pretty stellar:

animal collective - safer (exclusive live version)
black keys - stay all night (exclusive chulahoma Session)
bloc party - rhododendrons
bright eyes - coat check dream song (exclusive live version) (MP3 at Largehearted Boy)
cornelius - wataridori (exclusive piano version)
david sylvian - late night shopping (exclusive chris vrenna remix)
death cab for cutie - world shut your mouth (rare julian cope cover)
(international) noise conspiracy - washington bullets
the cure - the walk (exclusive live version)
the shins - turn on me (exclusive clint mansell remix)
spoon - rhthm & soul (exclusive middle version)
teargas & plateglass - one day across the valley
thievery corporation - passing the stars
travis - gimme some truth (exclusive john lennon cover)

I wonder if these songs have ever been released in the past, or if they are exclusive to this compilation? Does anyone know? Someone get Pitchfork on the line to investigate this.

100% of the proceeds will go to Doctors Without Borders, Oxfam America, and Human Rights Watch.
