The Patagonia Music Collective series is the brainchild of Patagonia, an environmentally conscious apparel company. One June 22, they released Volume 3 to continue their tradition of supporting grassroots environmental organizations through artist donations of exclusive tracks. The collective also added a nice touch by allowing individual musicians to choose the organization that will receive the proceeds from their track.
Like previous editions, Volume 3 includes unreleased material from both mainstay and emerging artists. The tracks are available at $.99 each or $9.99 for the entire compilation on iTunes. Patagonia also shows their good taste in music with the artist roster: featuring Best New Artist Grammy Award winner, Esperanza Spalding, as well as Daniel Bernard Roumain and Medeski Martin & Wood, amongst several others. You can sample the tracks on their site – now go out and support!
