nine inch nails: the slip
nine inch nails released their last album for free, as a “thank you.. to our fans”. you can buy a limited edition cd/vinyl version of it or download all 10 tracks for free
portishead released their new album last month.. i just downloaded it today but on first listen it seems it was worth the cash. i have the first track “machine gun” on repeat as i type this post..
this one seems a little grittier to me – darker and with even less hope than usual (if that’s possible) so of course i love it. definitely mood music.. a solid backdrop for… something. in my perfect world they would lose the mellow songs and she would sing less, but the music is good on most songs – i wish i could get a copy of this with no vocals (but i guess i say that about every album).
they also released a limited edition box set for it – which promptly sold out. i never buy these anyway.. i am strictly in download mode at this point (btw – this cd is available through itunes) but a bummer for those who do.
ok, new nin album and you can download all 36 tracks for $5
Nine Inch Nails presents Ghosts I – IV, a brand new 36 track instrumental collection available right now. Almost two hours of new music composed and recorded over an intense ten week period last fall, Ghosts I – IV sprawls Nine Inch Nails across a variety of new terrain.
Trent Reznor explains, “I’ve been considering and wanting to make this kind of record for years, but by its very nature it wouldn’t have made sense until this point”..”I’m very pleased with the result and the ability to present it directly to you without interference. I hope you enjoy the first four volumes of Ghosts.”-nin.com
