Give. Listen. Help. Vol. 6

Produced by Urban Outfitters and Filter Magazine to benefit 826

The title speaks for itself. What could be better than an exclusive two-disc compilation, featuring special recordings from two dozen artists, including MGMT, Sonic Youth, Passion Pit, and the Cold War Kids? Perhaps one that was put together for the explicit purpose of supporting 826 programs!

Just in case you still aren’t sure what to do, we wrote out some simple, user-friendly instructions:

  • Give = Buy CD.
  • Listen = Enjoy tunes on said CD.
  • Help = Revel in the knowledge that your gift funds 826 chapters across the country (or maybe even get inspired enough to become a real-life volunteer at your local chapter!)
