Graveface Records is putting out a Charity Subscription Series featuring exclusive new tracks from artists and bands like Dosh, Xiu Xiu, Mount Eerie, Mike Watt, Appleseed Cast, Shearwater and many more.
Here’s how Graveface Records explained the origin of the idea:
“The idea for the Charity series was hatched in 2010 when I lost a great amount of my stock in a flood. Many amazing folks donated loot to get me out of that hole. I was so inspired by their generosity that I asked some musician friends to contribute to the project. Two years later and we’re ready to go. So the idea is simple: amazing bands, awesome music that’s exclusive to each release, fun colored vinyl, and most importantly, a large chunk of the profits hitting charities of each artists choosing.”

The first release of this series comes from the hands of Chicago rap experimentalist David Cohn aka Serengeti, who is also one-half of rap duo Serengeti & Polyphonic and one-third of indie trio S/S/S featuring Sufjan Stevens and Son Lux. Serengeti teamed up with Tobacco to deliver ‘Be a Man’, available on August 28th. The profits from this release will be donated to RBI: Reviving Baseball In Inner Cities.
Here’s Serengeti’s ‘Be a Man’ featuring Tobacco. Straight after check out the sampler for the series.
