2011 Absence on "Resume Volume 1 ~ 3 (A compilation Album to Support the Victims of the Japan Earthquake)" MP3 Triple Album (Rel. April '11) Released by 7e.p. / Japan*
Title: 'Resume' - A Compilation Album to Support the Victims of the Japan Earthquake

In the wake of the horrendous earthquake and resulting tsunami that recently struck eastern Japan, the music downloading site OTOTOY decided to take quick action in supporting the victims by releasing a benefit album titled 'Play for Japan', which includes two 7e.p. bands - moools and yumbo.

'Play for Japan' encouraged 7e.p. to think about how we, a label that mainly licenses music from overseas, might also be able to contribute. With the hope of creating an iTunes-based benefit album, we called out to the overseas artists that we have had the pleasure of working with. The response was immediate and overwhelming.

We are excited to announce the release of a 3-volume benefit compilation album titled 'Resume'. It includes 45 tracks, most of them previously unreleased, from 43 artists hailing from America, Canada, Australia, the U.K., the Netherlands and even Japan.

The title, 'Resume', which implies recovering and persevering, was the idea of 'Sweet Dreams' publisher Norio Fukuda. The cover artwork was provided by renowned Olympia, WA. artist Nikki McClure. Moreover, Masaki Tada, who has worked on albums by moools and many other 7e.p. albums, offered his mastering expertise.

In particular, we would like express our utmost appreciation to all of the participating artists, who took time out of their busy schedules to make this happen.

The entire proceeds from this compilation will be used to support the disaster victims. Though we don't expect to raise a giant fortune, every yen will help make someone's life better. At the conclusion of this project, 7e.p. will announce how much money was raised and where it is going.

Finally, we would like to offer our deepest condolences to the earthquake and tsunami victims as well as their families. We pray for your quick recovery.

Koji Saito & Mitsuhiro Ariizumi

Our warmest thoughts went out to our friends living through the terrible devastation of the Great East Japan Earthquake in March of 2011; we were asked and thankfully able to contribute a new Cannanes recording 'Absence' to the mp3 triple album: 'Resume' - A Compilation Album to Support the Victims of the Japan Earthquake ~ out now and only available till August 2011~ to purchase any or all tracks ~ link here:
