"Evolve or die! Rather than try to fight, sue, or waste incessant time bad-mouthing the music-acquiring habits of people who "illegally" download full albums created by the glut of "hard-working" 20-somethings piling into vans and smoking the reefer in every city, forward-thinking individuals have been spending the last few years acknowledging the behavior and figuring out how to adapt accordingly. "The business model of gimmesound.com is an interesting one; bands are compensated by the advertising revenue generated by the site, and the website also donates 2% of their net revenue to a charitable cause of the downloader's choice.
"I have already uploaded over 20 full albums for immediate no-cost download (including some of the newest releases!), with another 80 or so that will be steadily available for download in the coming weeks and months. Please see the list/links below and feel free download every last song and album your heart desires."
Magic Bullet releases up for free download thus far include albums from Boy Sets Fire, Austin Lucas, This Will Destroy You, Frodus and many others. Check them out here.
