This compilation will benefit the medical treatment of our friend Amanda McCabe, who has been bravely battling a debilitating type of scoliosis for many years. She's finally got her first appointment with the Mayo Clinic on April 25th, 2013 in Jacksonville, FL.
Amanda is an amazing lady and stalwart of the indie music community. She created original album art for David Dondero, Birds & Batteries and Garrett Pierce, rocked a DJ residency at the legendary Hemlock Tavern in SF, interned at Subpop, worked at label relations for SNOCAP, was VP for Buried Treasure Records, admin for the Punk Rock Orchestra... The list goes on.
Music is her life.
So it only seems fitting that some of the artist she's helped and worked with chip in some music.
This compilation includes music by some of the best artists I can think of and better yet, these are mostly unreleased rarities: b-sides, acoustic versions, live recordings, yet to be released tracks.
If you're reading this, you're a fan of indie-music. In exchange for the heartfelt music on this compilation, please contribute whatever you can to Amanda's treatment. We can do it!
$10 is the minimum, but if you can give more it would be even better.
We REALLY appreciate this showing of support and believe that if enough fans contribute, something good can happen. The goal is to ease some of Amanda's financial pressures while she figures this out and hopefully heals up.

Oceans of Rock and Roll
Deeper than deep
Those rolling oceans of Rhythm and Blues
It goes deeper than deep
So don't try to ascribe some kind of meaning to this
You know those oceans of rock and roll
They keep rolling
As the waves beat
On the sand and concrete
It's like one collective heart
Smashing like its made of glass
Breaking over and over
Those rolling oceans of rock and roll
On those oceans of green and blue
How could one voice stand out?
And yet so many somehow do
Some just seem to be a little more loud
Even when they're singin' softly
In a raging hot sea
Those oceans of rock and roll
They keep rolling
So turn up the reverb
So wet it could drown you out
Yeah turn up the reverb
Til no one knows what yr singin' about
Let it shimmer on the blue tide
Like an inhalation
As it pulls away
I wanna float on the water
Out deeper than deep
Yeah that's what support me
All those voices underneath
All the greats, alive and late
Well they hold us up
And I can feel a heartbeat
