ABOUT SONGS FOR JAPAN
The musicians of Brooklyn's Local Correspondents community, compelled by the recent tragedy in Japan, created a compilation mix, available for a minimum donation of $5, with a suggested donation of $10 or more. One hundred percent of the proceeds raised will benefit the continuing global relief efforts of The American Red Cross.
The tracks on this mix include several previously unreleased recordings, and the compilation was remastered by Aaron Nevezie at The Bunker Studio. The album artwork is by Catharina Bruns at workisnotajob. This release has been made possible by these generous donations of talent.
