i don't say no to "free"
this is going to sound really strange, but trust me.
remember that song "flagpole sitta" by harvey danger? late 90s? one-hit wonders? no? that's okay.
go to their website and download their new album. they say that if you want to help them out you can buy a copy or you can make a small donation on their website. that's it. no questions asked. i had read in various music magazines and websites that they had a new album (and i just thought "uh, okay.") but reviews have said that it's good (pitchfork even gave it a 6.9 - i was surprised to see it on there, mostly because my only memory of this band is the number of their albums we sold to middle schoolers when i was working at a lame mall record chain during college, so "harvey danger" sort of equals "eve 6" in my head).
so i downloaded it today and i was pleasantly surprised. i like it. it has horns and piano and guitars and it's sort of derivative of every 90s band that you've ever liked, but sometimes that's enough. actually, listening to this album made me miss possum dixon.
