YACHT, Helado Negro, Daphni (Caribou's Dan Snaith), Owen Pallett, Róisín Murphy and more have contributed to a compilation to benefit the victims of the Oakland Ghost Ship fire that took 36 lives last month. 

The new set is called Lives Through Magic and will be released Jan. 30 thanks to former DFA Records label manager Kris Peterson and a collection of artists who "have performed in, lived in, and truly loved DIY spaces like Ghost Ship," per the Bandcamp page. 

All proceeds will be divided equally between the Gray Area Foundation for the Arts, which has set up a fire relief fund, and the Trans Assistance Project, which helps trans peoples needing financial support. 

"This compilation has been birthed due to a tragic event, but I do not want the compilation to be a souvenir of a tragedy," said Peterson in a statement. "I am instead aiming for a positive document of the beauty that exists in the minds, bodies, and spirits of our small, but global community."

The Lives Through Magic 42-song track list also includes Gobby, Peter Gordon, Bookworms, Patricia, Sage Caswell, Pantha Du Prince and more.
