'Friends in Bellwoods II' coming next month

If your like us and you're a fan of the Indie music scene that's coming out of Toronto, Canada, then you'll be sure not to miss the new compilation CD Friends in Bellwoods II. The album which comes out on August 25, 2009 on Out of this Spark, is a 40-song, double LP of rare, new and unreleased tunes from some of the regions best independent musicians, and follows up the first 'Friends in Bellwoods' compilation that came out back in 2007.
The idea for the discs originated out of Ohbijou’s Casey Mecija and her bandmate, James Bunton deciding to document some of the music being created in their home and around the neighborhood on Bellwoods Avenue in Toronto by friends also based in the area. All proceeds from the original and the second compilation go to The Daily Bread Food Bank. The first edition of the compilation raised over $11,000 since its release two years ago.

Some of the artists contributing to the LP are, Great Lake Swimmers, Forest City Lovers, The Acorn, Basia Bulat, Timber Timber, The Wooden Sky, Evening Hymns, Great Bloomers, and Ohbijou.
