    Not so much a band as a one-off supergroup, THE CAKE SALE is a benefit album for the hunger eradication organization OXFAM, spearheaded by the Irish band BellX1 and Crowded House's Nick Seymour, who recorded the songs' backing tracks and distributed them to various singers for lyrics and vocals. With contributions by the Cardigans' Nina Persson, the Frames' Glen Hansard, Josh Ritter, Gemma Hayes and others, THE CAKE SALE is a low-key collection of sweet indie-pop tunes with touches of country, electronica, and folk. Highlights include Persson's lovely "Black Winged Bird."

  • Critic Reviews
    Q (Magazine) (p.112) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[With] three opportunities to hear Lisa Hannigan's heartbroken tones....[A] consistently great charity record."
    Mojo (Publisher) (p.100) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[With] contributions from the likes of Josh Ritter, Neil Hannon and sometime Damien Rice foil Lisa Hannigan adding to the impression of a particularly fruitful/philanthropic open-mike night."
