Seattle, once the breeding ground for grunge, is now birthing some of today’s most well-regarded names in music, period. Celebrating these, plus the creation of new ones, is a new compilation featuring some city favorites.

Created by local coffee roaster Caffe Vita, GIVE Seattle features 10 videos and more than 30 tracks from such musicians, including Fleet Foxes, Le Loup and Best of What’s Next artist Mt. St. Helens Vietnam Band. Those purchasing the album will also receive six tracks later through e-mail, from Ben Gibbard, The Dutchess and the Duke, Throw Me the Statue, The Long Winters, Unnatural Helpers and David Bazan.

All album proceeds go to neighborhood food banks and Arts Corps, Seattle’s largest arts education organization. To purchase the compilation, out now for $7, visit or visit one of 13 Seattle locations.
