download "Careful" here free

01 The Henry Clay People: “Glory”
02 Foreign Born: “Days”
03 The Happy Hollows: “Foxhole”

05 The Deadly Syndrome: “Carried Away
06 Imaad Wasif: “The Fire [ft. Lykke Li]”

this tribute of the selections off the Televsion record is being issued by Aquarium Drunkard and is to benefit The Silver Lake Conservatory of Music. Silver Lake being where Local Natives (and some of the other artists on this?) are based.

Very nice and dreamy. Like Warning Sign from Talking Heads, I can't claim to have heard (or at least known) the original. But it has me curious. Television, like Roxy Music and some others, I've always been curious about. They never have come across quite as annoying as the hipster worship that The Velvet Underground has.
