Jay Bennett’s New Album Available for Free Download

MP3: The Engines are Idle

Former Wilco mad scientist Jay Bennett has released his latest album, Whatever Happened I Apaologize, as a free download from Rock Proper. Click here to grab it free and legally.

I was just having a conversation yesterday with my friend Megan about how changes in the industry are real and not just talking points that music geeks obsess over. Bennett might not still be setting the world on fire with sales, but he is a respectable solid name that can certainly sell enough records to make it worthwhile for any small label to work with him.

Which makes me think about local bands who don’t really tour: why aren’t you just releasing your music for free instead of spending $1,500 for 1,000 CDs that you’ll never sell…. If it’s good enough for Jay it’s good enough for you.

From the press release:

Rock Proper is an online music distributor providing free, high quality, album-length downloads with the legal consent of their creators. Please download this music, share it, and enjoy it in any non-commercial way you deem appropriate … In addition to Jay’s record, our site features 10 great reissues for your listening pleasure. Many of these records were recorded at Jay’s studio, Pieholden Suite Sound and document some of the many collaborations of a close group of friends focused on Chicago’s far north side.

Wilco the Song from The Colbert Report

Like Joe the Plumber, but not. New song…..

Watch Colbert’s interview with Jeff Tweedy here. Culture Bully currently has an mp3 of the song.

(Catching up on stuff that happened while I was on my honeymoon)

Wilco and Fleet Foxes Cover Dylan Together

Not sure where this is happening, but I found this on the Youtube.

Amazon Selling Vinyl? Wilco’s Yankee Hotel Foxtrot Vinyl Reissued? Question Marks?

Okay, here’s two things I didn’t know today.

1. Amazon.com is selling vinyl records. Say what? Makes sense, considering lots of people are moving away from CD, but still this totally went under my radar.

2. Yankee Hotel Foxtrot is reissued on vinyl? Say whaaaaaa? But I can’t seem to find any info on the web. Help me out, people.

Both of these things learned thanks to Each Note Secore.

The Hood Internet vs Chicago

The Hood Internet has gone and remixed an entire city! This fun mashup album features a ton of bands and the songs range from the straight up insane (Kanye + Wilco + the Super Bowl Shuffle!) to some really great stuff, like this Andrew Bird track I’m posting up.
