Recorded for Japan

Another fantastic benefit compilation to support Japanese earthquake relief efforts was released August 4th, featuring artists such as Kurt Vile, Ariel Pink, and R. Stevie Moore performing the appropriately titled “You Are Too Far From Me,” with members of MGMT. Almost all of the songs on Recorded for Japan were actually recorded live in the Vacation Island studio in Brooklyn.
