Monsterbit Media is breaking ground—so to speak—with its newest enhanced CD. To benefit the Honor the Earth movement, which preserves Native American homelands, the Austin company is producing a disc featuring the songs of eco-friendly bands; pop it in your CD-ROM drive and you’ll see footage of the 1996–97 Honor the Earth tour featuring the Indigo Girls and an interactive presentation on the environment. The as-yet-untitled release should be in stores by year’s end.
