oneirophrenia: (Relax Bear Music)
Check it out, folks: Subpop Records, one of my favorite indie labels on earth (Iron and Wine! The Postal Service!) has teamed up with BitTorrent to offer a number of new songs, videos, and so forth via BitTorrent! Get 'em here!

This is a ballsy move for a record company to take, but...man, it only makes sense that Subpop would do it. They represent their artists fairly and their artists know how to connect with fans. You give away some stuff for free, people will buy the hell out of the rest of your stuff. Why? Because you showed enough faith in your customers to give 'em a nice free sampling. That way, if they really like it, they feel perfectly comfortable with giving you money for your work. THAT is the spirit of contemporary post-capitalist commerce!

Check out the new article on The Spacing Guild Guide to Good Music concerning Camouflage's superb new album, Relocated, and Junior Boys' 8-bit depression-fest, So This Is Goodbye. Good sounds for you!
