Community Records and our close knit group of musical friends are trying to help out the Gulf of Mexico the only way we know how:
A benefit compilation for the Gulf Restoration Network.
One year ago today on April 20th, 2010, the Deepwater Horizon’s safety mechanism’s failed and the Gulf of Mexico was filled with 4.9 million barrels of oil. That’s 205.8 million gallons of crude…
19 times more than the Exxon Valdez spill in 1989 and one drop too many. Although news coverage of these facts has died down, we all must be aware that the situation will probably never be back to normal.
On this Wed, April 20th, 2011 (one year after the gulf coast oil spill), Community Records releases a benefit compilation to help create awareness and progress in the wake of the BP drilling disaster. For the compilation, Community Records has aligned with three different independent record labels from across the United States who will be submitting songs: Asian Man Records in CA, Plan-It-X Records in IN, and Quote Unquote Records in NY. The compilation has over 35 songs and will include literature, movies, and other media about the spill.
The compilation will be available for 100% FREE download on CommunityRecords.org with the opportunity to donate to the Gulf Restoration Network, a 16 year old environmental non-profit based in New Orleans. The GRN works to empower people to protect and restore the natural resources of the Gulf of Mexico. Since the drilling disaster, they have been committed to the fight of holding BP accountable and ensuring a disaster of this magnitude never happens again. Head Above Water will only be released as a digital download to avoid the use of new plastics as well as gasoline to ship them across the country.
