hello, oh gosh, hello

Dear Precious, Precious, insanely-precious-to-me Muffinasses,

There is a new Damnwells album coming out. It drops next Tuesday (the tenth, hophead, the tenth of February….). As if that weren’t enough of an awesome telling, I’m here to let you know that it is absolutely, one-hundred-percent fuhhhh-reeee. Yes, I said ‘free of charge’.

Says Alex (Dezen, head Damnwell extraordinaire),

I suppose the hardest thing to explain to people is why I’m giving this record away. “You’re just going to give it away?” seems antithetical to the human brain. “Is this just a bunch of b-sides or something? Some ‘give away’ material you don’t mind releasing into the ether?” No. Quite the contrary. I have never worked so hard or put so much of myself into a collection of recorded songs. It is for just this reason that I want to give it away. To me it makes perfect sense. I just want people to hear this music, and I don’t want them to have to enter into some kind of contractual agreement with a third party to do so. Download the record, copy it and give it to your friends, lovers, and enemies. Whatever. It’s so hard these days just to get the actual music into people’s houses and cars, let alone their ears. Besides, I know everyone’s broke, maybe I can supply the soundtrack. So, I just want to give this music away because I want people to hear it. I should have done this years ago. I’m starting over.

which is a wholly and superbly amazing sentiment. The only thing a body can say is maybe “Amen, man.” with a “Thank you so much.” chasing its heels.

You can download One Last Century from Paste Magazine on the tenth. Them there Damnwells have never put out a product that I consider less than amazing; if you’re the guy that doesn’t want to drop a nickel until you’ve sampled off the goods, this is your dream opportunity.

Looking out for your best interest(s),

That Jett Grrrl
