I posted about the release of The Lower West's album Only the Dead Know Brooklyn a while back but I have a feeling there may be some people who might want/need a re-look. Re-launch! We've added a twist! Please read:
Dear friends, fans of music, and/or people who I think have a goodpersonal note from me, Jen: Clearly this is a form message we are sending out to our friends, but I've added some of my own personal touches. (guess which parts and you'll win a prize!) But i would like to say, you've heard bits and pieces here and there on ye olde blog and now it's finally for real for real.

Have you been asking yourself, how can i donate to charity while acquiring
some awesome tunes? Look no further.
As you may or may not have heard, I have a new album out with a band called
the Lower West. We are really proud of the music and feel like you will
enjoy it. Rather than a traditional release of the record we had a
thought, "what if we could use our record to help some people?"
To do this, we have made our album free to download--as long as you donate at
least $10 to charity. Each month for the next 10 months we will be
announcing a new cause that we support. If you donate $10 or more to them
you can download our album for free at http://thelowerwest.com. Pretty
Our first month we will be supporting Phoenix Children's
Hospital, where Dom from the band works as a pediatric resident.
They do great work for some very sick kids, and we thought it would be nice to
offer some help.
Thanks for reading and thanks in advance for donating and/or passing this
along to all of your friends.

Also, email us any other questions you might have or leave it in the comments!
1. What if there is a different charity I want to give to?
please let us know! We have our list of 10, but we are
willing to add/change it if we find another cause that we may have missed.
Haven't you ever thought, oh that I could have some kind of platform to get
donations to my favorite charity? Well now's your chance!
2. What if I want a physical CD instead of a download?
We did a very limited release of physical CDs to keep down costs and because digital music is now so dominant. With this in mind, if you want a CD we ask that you donate at least $20 to charity and we will send you your own copy of the disc lickity split.
3. Can I catch a show by the Lower West?
We are unfortunately located on different end of the US at this time, but we planned ahead. You can see performances on YouTube by searching "the Lower West."
4. I don't have itunes, and also, this isn't a
