Free Music


The new 50 Foot Wave EP, Free Music, is pretty good. A couple of early standout tracks, and still in the same vein as Golden Ocean (and their eponymous debut EP). It’s raucous fun, and noticably different from Throwing Muses’ material (and completely different to Kristin’s solo work). There’s a clever bit of self-description going on with the title, in that this one’s under a Creative Commons freely-distributable license: head on over and download the EP, and see what you think.

There’s a PayPal tip jar, if this is the kind of thing you want to reward. “It’s an experiment. Who knows how it will go? Wheee!” It’s the future of music distribution and promotion we’re talking about here – are they taking this entirely seriously?
