We love Top 40 radio as much as anyone, but there are times when hearing the same songs every hour on the hour wears us out (sorry, Gaga, you know we love you). So what’s currently rockin’ our turntable? 100th Monkey Records’ Compassionism CD, which mingles music of all kinds—from folk and bluegrass to indie rock and pop. Among the 15 tracks are songs from the silky-voiced songbird Sia, folk-fusionists The Waifs, and jam band trailblazers The John Butler Trio. And as a bonus, listening to these songs—instead of FM 100-point-whatever on your radio—helps save animals. One hundred percent of the album’s proceeds go to PETA.
