Indie artists get together to end Malaria

Peter Bjorn and John
Indie Rocks! A Benefit Album For Malaria No More is coming. As the title suggests, it's a benefit album to help Malaria No More, an organization dedicated to ending Malaria in Africa. It's a noble cause, but the obvious criticism is (of course) whether benefit albums actually work or not. At the very least, we're proud to announce the organization's existence on this site to hopefully spread awareness of the good that the group is doing. More blogs and other media are probably doing the same, so the album really does it's job simply by getting the word out.

I'm not sure if all the artists featured on the disc are all technically "indie," but check it out the tracklisting after the jump. The digital-only release will launch on Amie Street with a four week exclusivity period starting on November 17, 2009. The album will then be available to all participating digital service providers (I'm guessing that means iTunes, Amazon, and so on).
