"Finally Champions"

I'm not a big Giants fan-- actually, I kinda despise them-- but little gestures like these from the San Francisco psych-pop underground can go a long way towards easing the discomfort. Put together by the hotly-tipped indie label True Panther, which originated in SF, the Finally Champions benefit compilation gathers together 21 rising Gold Coast acts-- from more high profile groups like Girls and the Fresh & Onlys to equally interesting though less visible artists such as Ty Segull and Young Prisms-- and donates the proceedings to San Fransisco Coalition on Homelessness. Donations are $1, and you can stream the whole thing below.
I'm now anticipating an Anahiem Angels-themed comp next year, featuring a trove of posthumous material from Tim & Jeff Buckley.
