artists digital downloads music tech

Those poor ripped-off artists.

Those poor ripped-off artists.

Remember when every other post here was about artists allowing digital downloads of their works, for however much you wanted to pay? There have been mixed reports as to how some of those experiments have been going. Did you donate any money for Radiohead’s “In Rainbows” when it came out?
No? Feel guilty?
Then the Dear Rockers site is just for you! In line with the PostSecrets craze, Dear Rockers allows you to secretly confess your sins when it comes to downloading mp3’s… and then encourages you to make restitution by sending in a $5 donation to the artists label, or fan clubs (addresses are on the site).

The site is an amusing look at people’s true feelings about the subject. The girl who gives Axl Rose $5 in change has captured my heart.

Finally, on a completely unrelated note, and simply because you should be listening to this, here’s Farryl Purkiss’s “Speechless”.
