If you can, get your hands on this compilation. Aside from being freaking brilliant, it’s made to raise awareness and prevention of HIV/AIDS.
Artists involved are…
The wonderful David Byrne of Talking Heads fame.
The Dirty Projectors.
The New Pornographers.
Ben Gibbard, lead singer of Death Cab for Cutie.
Iron and Wine.
And Stuart Murdoch, from Belle and Sebastian.
Prepare to be amazed. It makes me feel like I’m in a ‘Hansel and Gretel’ type wood (except without the psycho cannibalistic witch), surrounded by woodland creatures and doing cross stitch. It also makes me think of beards for some reason.
