Hot artists from Gorillaz to Lupe Fiasco are releasing new material. The cool part? The songs will be available online for download, and the cost ranges from totally free to "name your own price." These artists are among the most creative and challenging in popular music today, so everyone should take advantage of their magnanimity.
The band released a 15-song album entitled The Fall
while touring North America this year. It was recorded and produced on an iPad...how sweet is that? You can listen for free, as long as you submit your name and email address on their website
