    Indie rockers are all heart and the latest example of this is the forthcoming Causes compilation. This first installment of the planned series features exclusive tunes from Death Cab For Cutie,

    Bloc Party and The Shins among many other top indie acts, and all profits will go towards easing the pain of the Darfur conflict.

    Waxploitation, the label spearheading the project, has selected three specific non-profits to support: Doctors Without Borders, Human Rights Watch and Oxfam America. The comp comes out on November 27 and will be available exclusively on iTunes for the first 90 days.

    Animal Collective - "Safer" (Live)

    Bloc Party - "Rhododendrons"
    Bright Eyes - "Coat Check Dream Song" (Live)
