In what is looking like comprehensive ‘who’s who’ of indie-rock-pop artists of this decade, Dark Was The Night was finally released last week. Does it live up to the massive hype it has garnered on NPR and oh so many blogs the past couple months? A very confident YES! What’s even better is that it’s for a very good cause. The compilation includes tracks from the likes of Bon Iver, Andrew Bird, Feist, Ben Gibbard, The National, Grizzly Bear, Sufjan Stevens, Arcade Fire, Beach House, and the ridiculous thing, there is more. I put one of the standout tracks below; a brand new song from Sufjan is always welcome.
I already bought my 3 LP copy, get out there and do it.
