"Dark Was The Night we can confirm will be released on February 16th (Worldwide) and 17th (North America) 2009. Aaron and Bryce Dessner of The National produced the album, with John Carlin (founder of the Red Hot Organization) its executive producer. A total of thirty-two exclusive tracks have been recorded for the compilation, which will be available as a double cd, triple vinyl and download album, with profits benefitting the Red Hot Organization - an international charity dedicated to raising funds and awareness for HIV and AIDS.

Red Hot was founded on the premise that even without a cure, AIDS remains a preventable disease - using music as a great vehicle to raise both money and awareness for it. This is also the twentieth year of Red Hot as well as their twentieth compilation."

Why is it disgusting?

(I downloaded it from a blog because it's not out yet, but i fully intend on buying it.)

Well, I think from what you've said in brackets that you have deduced yourself why I might think it "disgusting".

Not to completely change the topic here, but is it all music downloading you find disgusting, or just those records that put the money towards charity?

Annnnnnd, the Grizzly Bear track is soooo soo good.

All illegal music downloading is undesirable in my opinion, although I'm no angel in that regard. In the case of charity records I think it is particularly reprehensible. You might go out and buy the actual record (good for you), but not everybody is going to do that when they can just get it for free. The people responsible for putting it on the blog should be ashamed of themselves.

Why? They arent saying "this is the only place to get this" or anything. I know plenty people with music blogs who say "if you like this stuff, buy it, don't just download it"

It's fair to say the vast majority will ignore such advice.
