((small howl)) Jason Noble was a main force behind amazing bands out of Louisville such as Rodan, Rachel's (one of my favorite bands ever), and Shipping News- of which directly influenced the genres of post-rock & math rock. This beautiful tribute by many friends and bands who loved his music and were changed by what he did helps provide support to his family. Beautiful. Favorite track: Fyrsta.

Justin Schwier A very cool benefit compilation from a wide variety of bands. Something for everybody and the proceeds go to the family of the late Jason Noble. My favorite song is a very Killing Joke inspired tune from Coliseum front-man Ryan Patterson. Favorite track: The End Of The Light.

***All proceeds from this compilation will continue to go to Jason's family.

Jason Noble was a pioneering force in the independent music scene. He was involved in many groundbreaking projects over the years, helping forge not just one, but two genres: post-rock (with Rodan and Shipping News), and avant/indie-classical (with Rachel’s). In 2009, Jason was diagnosed with Synovial Sarcoma, a rare form of cancer, and went through several rounds of treatments. Jason and his wife have health insurance, but as with any major medical expense, they need all the extra help they can get. Since 2009 there have been countless benefit shows in Jason’s honor, and this year should see the release of two benefit compilations - this one, and a separate compilation of all-live recordings from Louisville bands. Both compilations will share this Bandcamp site. Look for the Louisville compilation to be released sometime this fall.

The concept of a mixtape resonates with many of Jason’s admirers and long-time fans - it is the format by which many of us were introduced to his music, and his songs have occupied special places on countless lovingly-crafted mixtapes over the years. Putting together a new mixtape for Jason seemed like the perfect tribute. The cassette version of this compilation comes in a Stumptown printers chipboard package, hand-stamped with artwork by Zach Barocas, and hand-numbered. It is a limited edition of 200.
