The fine folks in Blonde Redhead have put together a compilation called We Are The Works In Progress that benefits the victims of the Japanese tsunami, and features tracks from the likes of Fever Ray, Interpol, Broadcast, Pantha du Prince, and others. One of those others is Deerhunter, who contributed a brand new instrumental track to the compilation. It's called "Curve" and it's streaming at Pitchfork. It sounds like the calm after a terrible storm, which is appropriate in context.
The album is due out on Feb. 7.
