OK, so Radiohead is self-releasing their new album, “In Rainbows”, and offering a “digital download” for… whatever price you’re willing to pay for it. Including nothing, which, as Fake Steve Jobs said, is likely to be the most popular choice.
But, hey… that sounds familiar. No label, download the song from the band’s website, pay whatever you want, DRM-free… Why does that sound so familiar?
Oh, right. Harvey Danger did it first.
It’s good that I like both bands or I’d be mad. Or maybe they’re just waaaaaay ahead of the curve. Rock on.
PS: Duh. I’m going to spend the $80+ for the physical CDs and vinyl and books and tchochkes and stuff. Because I’m a super-fan.
