Make the Load Lighter: Indie Rock for Haiti



Make the Load Lighter: Indie Rock for Haiti is the result of sixteen great indie bands, donating their time and their art in hopes of raising money and awareness of the tragedy unfolding in Haiti.

In many ways, this compilation resembles the indie rock of old: bands pooling their resources, home-spun artwork, DIY ethics and a strong desire to make a difference. And yet today’s technology enables us to sell this complete collection of music online, just weeks after the tragic earthquake struck Port au Prince.

Sixteen unbelievable indie rock bands that represent, stylistically, what Dromedary Records is all about – great indie rock, garage, punk(ish), power pop, post-rock and roots music. And with every penny we earn on this record being donated to Haitian earthquake relief, directly to Vwa Ayiti (Voice of Haiti).  Your contribution makes a difference.

1. Footstone: “For the Boss”
