The Portland-based record company Jealous Butcher will donate a portion of the record proceeds from the sale of the album to a non-profit called First Octave, which aids public school music programs in the area.

You can pre-order copies through the Jealous Butcher website, and if you’re an Oregonian, can get it three days early at the record release show on Oct. 9.
