OK Go Doing Something Besides Music Videos

Friday, 08 February 2008

Cynicism aside, this bit of news is quite exciting.

This Mardi Gras (February 5th), OK Go is releasing You’re Not Alone, a five-song digital EP featuring New Orleans brass band Bonerama. All proceeds from this project, available exclusively at iTunes, will benefit members of New Orleans’ music community. People who are continuing to struggle to rebuild their homes and lives almost three years after the levy failures that followed Hurricane Katrina.

Admirable, to say the least; proceeds from You’re Not Alone will specifically go to Sweet Home New Orleans, an organization dedicated to helping repatriate and support the thousands of local musicians who were scattered by Katrina.

Make sure you check this out, as such a mash up is sure to be quite entertaining.
