On the Team Love library
2013/02/17 § Leave a comment
Just wanted to tip y’all off to Team Love’s library
which basically is a place online where you can get free music.
When Team Love started we had the simple and possibly self-defeating notion that posting all our albums on the website as free downloads would be a good detour around the wreckage of the music industry and a way to avoid getting bogged down in the number one topic of discussion and distraction: piracy, illegal downloads, P2P networks and so on.
Five years later and the debate still drones in the background, and while some bands have adopted a mutated version of the “free download” (pay what you wish, etc), we’ve decided to reshape our policy in a different direction and introduce the Team Love Library. Each month (or so) we’ll be rotating the Library’s selections, featuring different Team Love albums as well as exclusive content such as unreleased songs, live or remixed versions of TL favorites.
The library will be open to the public 24/7, and as we have an endless abundance of MP3’s (we fucked up and made too many of them), anything you take from the library is yours to keep. You will not be notified if you fail to return something on time, and you will not lose your library privileges if you share selections with friends.
I’m not sure if it’s updated often, but there’s still so much great music to check out, so take a trip over, make an account and enjoy. You can find stuff from David Dondero, Nik Freitas, Simon Joyner, Tilly & The Wall, Willy Mason, Refried Ice Cream, The Berg Sans Nipple…
(And as always, feel free to also pay a visit to their shop, where there’s even more good music to be found. And t-shirts, if you’re into that kind of thing.)
