The Hotelier - Dendron 

I lost a loved one at the turn of 2014. It would be hard to count the amount of hours spent around this woman who was near for so many events that changed and shaped my life.

You tend to face many foreign and challenging turns of events as you grow older, and this has been the most difficult one. Sometime music hits just at the right time when those moments come into lay. “Dendron” by The Hotelier has possibly hit me harder, in a relative way, than any song I’ve ever listened to has. The album itself is of course incredible, but this song is now forever cemented in a dark evening for me. I feel grateful and upset to have it.

Part of your charm was the way you would push me from / All of the traps that I just couldn’t see / Figures the one that was there to have tripped you up / would be the one that was set there by me.

Modern Baseball - Your Graduation

There’s something special about relating to every line of a song, feeling as if the writer picked your brain before putting pen to paper. “Your Graduation” is one of those songs for me, but what I find even more intriguing is how many people in completely different situations also relate to it so well. “Bullshit, you fucking miss me” is a line every bitter pop punk kid would love to say to their ex, and spawned a million “my life right now” posts on Tumblr. That’s what I think fans love so much about Modern Baseball, they are just some college kids writing songs about their lives with no pretensions of anything more, and that’s something everyone can relate to. -Connor Sheehan (@ConnorPOZ

The Menzingers – The Talk

We were all curious as to whether or not The Menzingers could follow up the brilliance of 2012’s On The Impossible Pastwith an album equally as incredible.  Those doubts were removed about .02 seconds into Rented World’s first single, “In Remission,” and the band’s fourth album has steadily dug its way into my subconscious since its release in late April.  Although each of the twelve tracks is stellar in its right, “The Talk” is the record’s clear standout, with the song’s two minutes and sixteen seconds jammed packed with the right mix of spite and substance.  “The Talk” is the perfect song for cruising down a country road on a long summer night and with the Fourth of July just around the corner, can one really ask for anything better? – Zac Lomas (@Infidelegate)

The the remaining 40% will be going to The Nature Conservancy for a second year in a row.

We went big last year, but even bigger this year, we mean it. For a minimum of $5 you can download 85 fantastic tracks by 85 different bands with all donations (minus Bandcamp fees) going directly to the charities listed above until July 31st.
