Nothing Costs Less Than Free

May 9, 2010

Well, folks, the summer is upon us.  Or is it?  I’m in Montreal, and it was snowing this morning, and it continued well into the afternoon.  On Friday night, my neighbourhood had that fall smell.  You know what I mean, right?  Chimneys and a whole lot of other junk.  What a rip-off.

You know what’s not a rip-off?  Free stuff.

If you’re like most people, when it comes to music, free usually trumps any sort of cost.  And at this time of year, everybody is saving for summer trips, concerts, drugs, feeding the Fabergé egg-addiction monkey, so the pocketbook isn’t necessarily tight, but, you’re being fiscally conservative.  But how do you be fiscally conservative while still keeping up with the times, entertainment-wise?   Well, friend, you download music which artists offer up for free.

The Rifle Eyes team has two such offerings for you.

First we have Danny Deleto’s “Satursnakes”, which is available for download here.  Dan Reid and Eimhin Rooney (Crush Buildings) bring you an album that takes glitch into the realm of songwriting and the result is something entirely unique unto itself, as well as an experience that stays with the listener well after its 6-song span.  The duo are currently working on their follow-up, entitled Conversation, so now would be a good time to get on board and catch the next wave.  Featuring vocal appearances by James Romanuk (Crush Buildings) and Owel Five and KWES (Kwiz Massturrz), it’s not to be missed.

Secondly, we have James Hancock’s “Cognitive Dissonance”, under the pseudonym Above the Clouds, a nod to Gang Starr (R.I.P. Guru).  The man behind “Talkies Ruined My Life In The Pictures” steps into the foreground with an instrumental EP that straddles the line between hip hop and organic-electronic music, it is hard to determine whether one is listening to the product of one-man or an entire band which, coincidentally, was the reasoning behind the pseudonym.
