Just in time for the busy summer festival season, Oxfam America has released our annual Oxfam Summer Jams downloadable album to help raise awareness of our efforts to right the wrongs of poverty, hunger, and injustice.

Loaded with 17 solid tracks from great bands that support Oxfam’s work, highlights of this year’s album include live songs from Wilco and Calexico, indie grooves from Cayucas and Ra Ra Riot, a Dan Deacon remix of Peals‘ “Blue Elvis,” and beach-ready tunes from Ben SolleeDead Boots and Lucius. Consider it a soundtrack for your next barbecue, road trip, or lazy summer weekend.
