Film director David Lynch used his considerable pull to corral an eclectic group of performers and have each contribute a unique one-off song for this compilation, the proceeds from which benefit the work of his charitable foundation. The David Lynch Foundation promotes stress reduction and good health through Transcendental Meditation and serves at-risk inner city youth, veterans with PTSD, Native Americans, the homeless and prisoners. So you can feel good about your money going to a good cause when you purchase this set and do a little unwinding of your own while you listen to Iggy Pop’s slow and ominous take on “Milk Cow Blues” and a live version of Slightly Stoopid’s “Wiseman” that includes guest vocals from Don Carlos and an homage to Bob Marley via a few lines of “Roots Rock Reggae.”

Au Revoir Simone covers Don Henley’s “Boys of Summer,” Moby re-imagines “The Poison Tree” as a Hawaiian-flavored blues and Ozomatli opens the smooth “Monster” with a funky burst of scat singing. It’s difficult to make such a lengthy compilation a stunner all the way through but Download For Good flows nicely, even with oldies acts like Nancy Sinatra, Donovan and Peter & Gordon placed alongside Neon Trees, Band from TV, the Charlatans and Pink Jaffee. Available exclusively at iTunes.

Download for Good: Music That Changes the World is currently available.
