Rose Quartz blog recruits Sun Araw, Thurston Moore, Grouper, and more for New Zealand earthquake fundraiser

On February 22, a 6.3 magnitude earthquake hit the New Zealand city of Christchurch, causing billions in damages and at least 172 deaths. To raise money for quake relief and recovery efforts, partially New Zealand-based blog Rose Quartz has put together a digital compilation. Though much of the compilation consists of bands from the Christchurch area, it also features unreleased material from international acts like Thurston Moore, Grouper, Sun Araw, and Dolphins into the Future.

The compilation is free for download here, but listeners are urged to provide a donation. All donated funds will go to the New Zealand Red Cross.
