At work, we have a network drive full of music. A while ago, I made a Winamp playlist with all of that music, and I sometimes listen to it all on shuffle. I hadn't listened to music at work in a while, but I decided that I felt like it today. So the song Flagpole Sitta by Harvey Danger comes on. It's the song with the line "I'm not sick but I'm not well" that was in some movie a few years ago (I'm too lazy to try to figure out which movie). I really like the song (I haven't forgotten about your interview questions, theora), so I decided to google the band. And it turns out that today is the release date of their first new album in five years.
As a bonus, they are going to be releasing their album free online in a week, so I can check them out to see if I like anything of theirs besides the one song I've heard. Their news page updates can be found at harveydanger_up, which I'll be watching to remind myself to download their album next week.
Anyone know about other bands releasing entire albums free online? Is this something that's happening a lot?
