So I recently found this guy called Ben Hantoot, who offers his music on his website. Either you pay for the high quality files ($5 for a whole album), or download it with a slightly downgraded quality for free.
Atohms, thx for the link. I cant create music even worthy of an old cellphone, but ill check out the other url tomorrow!
Michael: Youre welcome!
Choto: Thats a damn shame. I only found his myspace, but it didnt seem to have any urls. Hopefully he will be renewing his site soon!
Thanks NURB. One of my (many, I must admit ) favourite bands. It was kinda nice to download music again. It’s far from the thrill of walking out of a record store with a new record just wanting to run home and listen to it, but beats streaming.
I’m getting more and more spoilt by Spotify and used to the idea of not owning music anymore (just access to it). It sure is the future, but as always (or mostly anyway) there’s also some lost qualities when new technology replaces old.
Yeah, I haven’t ponied up the cash for the box set just yet, but I plan to. They are one of those bands (and Frank Black’s solo stuff) that no matter what they come out with I buy it. I was able to buy one of their Live Discs after a show here in St Paul a few years ago that was a highlight of my life (in terms of live music anyways…)
