THE CRIMEA

I don’t quite think it’ll match the might of Gnarls Barkley by getting anywhere near number 1 on downloads alone, but if you wanna give it a try for The Crimea then their newest single White Russian Galaxy (out April 10th on CD) is AVAILABLE NOW at all good download stores, and I’ve not even got round to uploading the cover image yet :o \. The contents of all three hard releases are up, including the 7″ track.. Seichu…err… that one I can’t spell… Anyway, iTunes seems the cheapest so far at 79p a track. Here’s a link to the main release, I’m sure you can find the rest. Personally I’m waiting for the CDs. First time ever I’ll actually not have heard any of the studio b-sides on a release. Yay. Well, bar 10 seconds of the sei… err… yeah… alex’s fault :o P

    So… The Ballad of Seichi Taniguchi is iTunes-only, unless we’re buying bits of plastic with grooves scratched into them? This is not a good way to keep fans — CDs are good, everyone can play the things, and there’s no worry about keeping MP4 files backed-up. CDs have been around a long time for a reason.

    Still, at least it *is* for sale in a non-vinyl medium. Suppose I’d better go and find out if Apple have produced a less bloated version of their client app.

    Chris, do you have a copy of the AAC/M4A file from this site?

    The link appears to be broken, and the WMA is DRM’d to the eyeballs.

    err….. yeah, unfortunately still drm’d i believe, had to… hang on… i appear to have shamelessly lost the .wma version… oops. well, in that case you don’t even have to bother about converting it.

    …that we’re then expected to stick needles into. Lasers, fine — they can be focused weakly enough to not cause the media to degrade after a few plays.

    I don’t mind *listening* to vinyl, scratches and all, but it’s an exceptionally crap way of procuring a hardcopy of songs, different dynamic range or not.

    > err….. yeah, unfortunately still drm’d i believe

    It wasn’t, or at least wasn’t to the extent I couldn’t get a DRM-less equivalent out of it. That could be the reason the download is missing, I suppose.

    As far as I know there’s no skip in this one:

    …it’s just that I accidentally deleted the Apple MP4 file after I did it. :-
