celebration decides to give away all their music for free

Baltimore's Celebration have decided to cut out the middle man (4AD, in their case) and release all of their music for free. In the band's words:
We as Celebration, have felt the continual growth of web culture's need for barrier-free exchange. We also feel that the traditional methods of releasing music have put too much distance between us...Our plan and experiment is to post new songs monthly, as we create and record them. Under the creative commons attribution non-commercial share alike license, all of our new music will be free to download on our new website. When we have enough music for an album, we will release it on vinyl for those who want to have something to hold. As artists we can only stand for our music, our art, our creation. So here it is--laid bare.
Read their entire manifesto and download two new songs, including "I Will Not Fall," here.

In a recent TapeOp interview Robert Carranza said about the way we record now, "It's so instantaneous that we don't take the time to see if something's there or not...Most people don't listen anymore it's a shame."

It's a great feeling to be able to create something and then show it to the world, but for better or worse, it affects quality.

i wonder if they got dropped and they are trying to come out of it looking good. is that too cynical?

I like bands that do this because usually when I hear an mp3 I dig, I want to have it in the best medium I can get...to me that is vinyl. That way I get some really nice art work and I can convert vinyl to whatever "convenience" medium I need. Releasing Cd's is the worst of both worlds...small art work and lower quality of sound.
