Ben Gibbard & Feist = Train Song (Dark Was The Night)


Ben Gibbard of Death Cab For Cutie and Feist lend their voices for Vashti Bunyan's "Train Song" which is included to Dark Was The Night, a charity compilation produced by Aaron and Bryce Dessner of The National with 32 exclusive tracks from some indie royalty.+/-

Some of these royalties are Andrew Bird, Sufjan Stevens, Beirut, The National, Arcade Fire, Iron and Wine, Blonde Redhead and ya-da-ya-da.

Each track of the compilation will be release for a day from January 15 through February 1 on the artists and Dark Was the Night’s Myspace.

If all songs are as close as being soothing, unpredictable or even decent as this cover, then this compilation is a sure treat for indie lovers. It doesn't hurt either to spare a few bucks for good intentions.
