Harvey Danger: Little by Little

A brief refresher: Harvey Danger formed in Seattle in 1994. Their first record, Where Have All the Merrymakers Gone?, released on Brooklyn’s tiny Arena Rock Recording Company, became a surprise smash when the song “Flagpole Sitta” became an inescapable summer staple on commercial radio and MTV in 1998.

The Wired CD: Creative Commons Music

What musicians are saying is that true creativity needs to be open, fluid, and alive. When it comes to copyright, they are pro-choice. Here are 16 songs that encourage people to play with their tunes, not just play them. This CD was given away free with the November 2004 issue of Wired Magazine, and is permitted to be freely shared and sampled for non-commercial purposes under the terms of the Creative Commons licenses placed on the music.

Nine Inch Nails: Ghosts I-IV

We’re very proud to present a new collection of instrumental music, Ghosts I-IV. Almost two hours of music recorded over an intense ten week period last fall, Ghosts I-IV sprawls Nine Inch Nails across a variety of new terrain. Now that we’re no longer constrained by a record label, we’ve decided to personally upload Ghosts I, the first of the four volumes, to various torrent sites, because we believe BitTorrent is a revolutionary digital distribution method, and we believe in finding ways to utilize new technologies instead of fighting them.
