"There is no immediate cure, all women are at risk, and early detection is vital to survival. This project honors all women who have lost the fight to breast cancer and all those who have survived it," writes Music for the Cure executive producer Hernando Courtright in this charity album's liner notes. (Proceeds will benefit the Libby Ross Foundation and the T.J. Martell Foundation.) Music for the Cure shines the light on independent (predominantly) female artists who have banded together in the name of sisterly support. In the process of motivating and healing, the collection may even introduce new talented faces into the mainstream: Wellville ("How Does It Feel"), Lava Baby ("If I Did Not Have You"), Sister Someone ("To Be a Girl"), and Emily Curtis ("Just the Same"). Bonus track and Beatles cover "The Word" features Joan Jett, Sara Lee, and Leni Stern, among others. Contact 212-410-9055.—MP
