Neophile: MPress Records New Arrivals 3

March 13, 2009


There’s been a number of high profile compilation CDs for charity recently, including Dark Was the Night and the new Heroes CD to benefit War Child. Brooklyn’s MPress Records approach is the polar opposite of lining up big names for your charity CD, although its genesis was somewhat accidental. The first of their New Arrivals label samplers was scheduled for release shortly after Hurricane Katrina; rather than giving it away free as a promo item, MPress and the artists decided to sell it and give the proceeds to Gulf Coast Hurricane Relief. They’ve continued to do this with their sampler CDs, designating a new charitable recipient every year. New Arrivals 3 is now out, and it’s worth checking out. The CD includes Toronto indie band Ember Swift, Jay Clifford (as heard on Grey’s Anatomy), a bonus track by Toad the Wet Sprocket lead singer Glen Philips, and more, with proceeds going to the National Eating Disorders Association.

Full details on the CD, including a link to retailers, here.
