Oxfam America.

The video for Causes 2 can be seen

The album includes rare and exclusive songs from some of the most compelling

Soundsystem, My Morning Jacket, Matthew Dear, Mum, Neon Neon, Richard Swift,
RJD2, and Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings, as well as a contribution from

“It’s easy for fatigue to set in when a crisis goes on for a number of
years,  but no one has given up hope that things can change for the better
in Darfur” says Waxploitation founder Jeff Antebi, who executive produced
the album. “There are untold numbers of people committed to changing the
outcome.  It takes humanitarian assistance, tenacity and political
will.”

great acclaim. The album, which hit #35 on the iTunes Album Chart and reached
#46 on Billboard‘s Top Independent
Albums chart, includes contributions from Animal Collective, The Black Keys,
