New CD to benefit RAICES

Cardboard Ox is proud to have contributed a new, original song to a compilation CD, which is out now! It's a collection of lullabies from Rhode Island musicians to benefit RAICES, which is providing free and low-cost legal services to families separated at the border. Everything on the album - the songs, artwork, mastering, pressing, printing - was donated, so 100% of the proceeds will go to RAICES. It's also truly beautiful! Order/Download on Bandcamp HERE or pick up a copy at one of these local stores: Armageddon, Symposium Books, Ada Books, Paper Nautilus, Olympic, Round Again, Craftland, New Harvest Coffee!
