I’ve got an offer that you can’t refuse right here! I found this over at Gorilla v Bear (indie people like animals) and it’s the music deal of the year so far. It’s The Walkmen‘s new album, You & Me, which is supposedly their best yet and one of the best albums of the year for a measley 5 bones. Not only is it only $5, but that $5 will go towards helping kids with cancer. Really, you almost can’t not do this, unless you’re a true grouch who doesn’t like music or kids. This from the press release:
“All donations go to Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in honor of Luca Vasallo, a friend to the band and a current patient who is seven months old and doing a great job fighting a very difficult disease,” said Peter Bauer of The Walkmen. “This is a very good organization that certainly deserves the attention.”
So, it would behoove you to head on over to Amie St. and make your donation, and receive a fine musical album at 320 kbps DRM-free mp3′s! Oh yeah, and it doesn’t officially drop until August 19th. I haven’t heard it yet, but I’m going there now to get mine.
