Free music so far...In case you haven't heard by now, Radiohead released their latest album, In Rainbows, at a variable pricing, ranging from $0 to $100. Dashboard Confessional had a free download called Thick as Thieves which was featured on their latest album, The Shade of Poison Trees. 3 doors down also gave away a free single, Citizen Solider, with the National Guard backing them.
The Inevitable Rise And Liberation of Niggytardust by Saul Williams for free? Kewl!Yes, it's true. You can get Saul Williams's Niggytardust produced by Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails for $0. Or if you wish for a low fixed price of $5.
