Lagniappe is a compilation album put together by Omaha record label Saddle Creek, after the events of Hurricane Katrina. It is a benefit album, and all profits from its sale are donated to the Red Cross' relief efforts in New Orleans.


The album is composed of mostly impromptu recordings, thrown together for this explicit purpose. The Saddle Creek web site explains it as follows:

Old favorites, new faces, and friends of Saddle Creek recorded these 13 tracks in bedrooms, basements, kitchens, living rooms, and even in a couple of studios. The album was put together in one week. It's a menagerie of mostly new songs, a few tracks that should have made it onto albums but for whatever reason didn't, a couple of B-sides, a demo song - whatever people could contribute.

Most of the currently active bands on the label contributed a track, including Saddle Creek's most popular bands (The Faint, Bright Eyes) and also some newer additions to the label (Two Gallants, for example).
