Last month, we told you about the Mountain Goats’ plans to put out a new double-7″ EP in a “hi-gloss UV gatefold sleeve […] in a limited edition of 666 copies” as a tour only release. Well, the digital download is available now in AAC (256kbps), MP3 (320kbps), AIFF, and FLAC formats. You can pay whatever you think is fair.
All files are available at no cost to the listener; you need not give us your email address or anything. Donations, however, through either PayPal or Google Checkout, are greatly appreciated, and, lest there be any question, are earnestly desired; neither the recording nor the mastering were free, and this site exists as something of an experiment. If you choose to accept these songs, please stop by the collection plate and sow your faith-seed, which, like a grain of mustard, et cetera.
1. Sarcofago Live
2. Wizard Buys a Hat
3. Satanic Messiah
4. Gojam Province 1968
This is an exciting time for music fans. Hopefully, the experiment will prove that even bands that don’t have the major label cultivated fanbases of Nine Inch Nails and Radiohead can pull this off with a base of dedicated fans who give a shit about the livelihood of their favorite musicians…
