They Gave You, Now You Give Them

TO DO: make yourself feel good and help those that have suffered. We all want to do this, right? The aftershocks of Hurricane Katrina are still felt by many in NOLA, and what with the recent oil spill down in the gulf, and what with the Crescent City being so awesome to begin with, it's more than fitting for a benefit record called Dear New Orleans to be released on the 5 year anniversary of the devastating 'cane. What's more fitting is for Drag City's most generous and giving artist, Bonnie 'Prince' Billy, to partner up with his Salvation Army bell swingin' bud Matt Sweeney for a New Orleans inspired track included on the comp. It's a digi only, but definitely worth peeping over here. Another sweet thing coming from this is the likely return of Bonnie/Sweeney collabs in the near future -- keep looking at this site. And please -- after you've donated to a good cause like this, come back to this here DC website and donate a little more for your own guilty pleasure, OK????
