ARIEL PINK, KURT VILE, CHAIRLIFT, R. STEVIE MOORE W/MEMBERS OF MGMT
CONTRIBUTE TO BENEFIT ALBUM FOR JAPAN

Recorded for Japan is a compilation album containing songs recorded between April and June 2011 to aid the victims of the earthquake, resulting tsunami, and nuclear emergency that happened on March 11, 2011 in Japan. 100% of the proceeds from the sale of this compilation will go directly towards the continuing recovery and reconstruction effort, specifically the Japanese Red Cross. The album features the contributions of Kurt Vile, Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti, Acrylics, Beige, and more. The digital-only compilation will be available on Aug. 4, 2011 worldwide. Check below for an album preview.

The majority of the songs on Recorded for Japan were recorded and mastered at Vacation Island Recording studio, Brooklyn, NY, and otherwise recorded by the artists themselves. The artwork is by Max Hooper Schneider. This album has been a genuine group effort, made possible by the generosity of the artists, recording studio and labels involved. Japan continues to need our help and your purchase is greatly appreciated.
