Dark Was the Night Compilation

I don't usually dig compilations, but this is a really great one. Unreleased songs from Dirty Projectors (w/ David Byrne), Grizzly Bear, Bon Iver, Sufjan Stevens, The Books, and Iron and Wine are all wonderful. Like real good. I might go buy this, actually.

Edit: More thoughts. The two new Bon Iver songs (one under Justin Vernon's name) make up for the Blood Bank EP disappointment. You also must listen to the entire new Sufjan electronica epic. I took down the links because you need to buy this. If you don't, you're killing people with HIV.

You can listen to songs at www.darkwasthenight.com
