Is this the future of online music? Free albums?!

The Basics – The Basics

Radiohead tried it with mixed results, and now Australian band The Basics are trialling a new way to get music to the masses…give it away!

Think it’s too good to be true? Well, you’re wrong! Visit www.FreeBasicsAlbum.com and download the latest album from awesome band, The Basics (featuring Gotye’s Wally De Backer).

From their website:

…the album will be available for free as of August 20th. We’re doing this because this business of show is changing, and if we’re going to stay alive we need to expand our listenership. The way we see it, if radio don’t want us, then this is our best alternative. It also feels good to give and not expect a return.

What have you got to lose? Nothing! 🙂

Just like Linux it will catch on in a capitalist world.
