One More: A Compilation Album for the Canadian Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation

There are times that I get embarrassed at the geek culture on the internet. This is usually following someone or some group making the news because they decided to “improve the image” of their particular fandom, only for it to blow up in their face and make them look like total buffoons. Then, instead of leaving the spotlight, they bask in it and complain how they were misrepresented.

More often then not however, geeks are willing to do damn near anything to help those in need. Some will donate time and money while others will start charities. Then there are musicians who will work together for a compilation album where the proceeds go to fight diseases. Today on Lost in the Music, I will be focusing on the album One More. This album is a compilation album of different artists from all sorts of genre's in support of the Canadian Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation and Vasculitis Foundation of Canada.

One More is a compilation album much like an OCReMix album. Each artist brings something unique to the album and it combines both mainstream music with indie chiptunes and game covers. You have music from lyrical funnyman Brentalfloss on one track while one other track is from Toronto rock group You Handsome Devil performing one of their own hits. There is enough variety on this album that you will find something to like.

One More is a triumphant example of what happens when groups and artists of all different genre's of music come together for a common cause. Disease knows no bounds and for a performer, Pulmonary Fibrosis is a career killer.

There are many great songs on this album and I suggest you buy it. Not only will every sale go towards the Canadian Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation and the Vasculitis Foundation of Canada, but you will also experience new performers. This is a great way to be exposed to bands you haven't heard of.

All proceeds from One More goes towards Canadian Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation and Vasculitis Foundation of Canada. You can purchase the album over at bandcamp.

This is Daimo mac and I am lost in the music.
