Head Above Water: A Response to the BP Drilling Disaster

On Wed. April 20th, 2011 (one year after the gulf coast oil spill), Community Records has released a benefit compilation to help create awareness and progress in the wake of the BP drilling disaster. For the compilation, Community Records has aligned with three different independent record labels from across the United States who will be submitting songs: Asian Man Records in CA, Plan-It-X Records in IN, and Quote Unquote Records in NY. The compilation will have over 60 songs and will include literature, movies, and other media about the spill.
The compilation will be available is 100% FREE download on with the option of donating money to the Gulf Restoration Network. The GRN has played an active role in keeping the ecosystem of the gulf coast in tact for over 15 years. Head Above Water will only be released as a digital download to avoid the use of new plastics as well as gasoline to ship them across the country.
Community Records is a 100% D.I.Y. Independent record label based out of New Orleans representing over 20 artists all over the world. The label is strongly based on free digital downloads as well as uniquely packaged vinyl and other merchandise. Community Records artists tour the U.S. constantly and many have toured Europe, the United Kingdom, and the Dominican Republic. Every year since 2008, they have put on an all day, 2 stage punk and ska music festival in the streets of New Orleans called Block Party.

So download and enjoy and don't forget to donate to help restore the gulf!


  1. Its a very good thing what they are doing, unfortunately not my type of music!

  2. It's a nice thing for them to do, but unfortunately I think it's a bit late. I'm sure there is still much help needed with the cleaning up of the gulf, but with all the latest disasters, I don't think people will care enough.

  3. Nice share, already downloading!

  4. very intriguing concept gonna download
    How to Hack Life.

  5. Good cause - always nice to see musicians come together for something like this.

  6. I love the cause. Everyone seems to forget previous disasters once the new ones come around.

  7. sounds great.. ill check it out
