Download new Harvey Danger album for free (really)

http://www.harveydanger.com/
Why we’re releasing our latest album for free on the Internet
In preparing to self-release our new album, we thought long and hard about how best to use the internet. Given our unusual history, and a long-held sense that the practice now being demonized by the music biz as “illegal” file sharing can be a friend to the independent musician, we have decided to embrace the indisputable fact of music in the 21st century, put our money where our mouth is, and make our record, Little By Little…, available for download via Bittorrent, and at our website. We’re not streaming, or offering 30-second song samples, or annoying you with digital rights management software; we’re putting up the whole record, for free, forever. Full stop. Please help yourself; if you like it, please share with friends.

This is a pathetic publicity ploy. If they weren't "one hit wonders", I doubt they'd be doing this.

Your comment makes absolutely no sense. How is it "pathetic" that the bands wants people to hear their new record? Jesus, I can't believe people would actually bitch about getting something for free.

I downloaded the album. It's quite good...especially since it was free.
