Bill Orcutt, Pete Swanson, Ilyas Ahmed contribute to Tom Carter compilation

A compilation has been released to raise money for guitarist and Charalambides founding member Tom Carter, who's currently recovering from a serious bout of pneumonia which landed him in intensive care in Germany, and has meant that he's unable to work, play or tour until 2013. To help pay for medical bills and other expenses, a compilation has been released via Bandcamp.

The 11 track compilation, Music For Tom Carter, includes contributions from Bill Orcutt, Jon Porras, Ilyas Ahmed, Pete Swanson, Ensemble Economique, Jefre Cantu-Ledesma, Marcia Bassett & Barry Weisblat and others. All money raised through sales of the $10 compilation will go to Carter. More details here, and listen below.
