Free Buck 65!

That's right, Buck 65 is giving away his latest project for free!
His new albums, Dirtbike 1-2-3, which is 70 songs across three albums, are yours for the grabbing right here
But don't listen to me, see what Mr Rich Terfry has to say about it himself:
I set out a task for myself, to put together three huge albums worth of music in three months - what I've been calling the 'Dirtbike' project. I managed to write and record approximately 70 songs. The three "albums" are each around an hour in length.

I think of Dirtbike 1-3 as a woodshed demo project. But I've wanted to share this work with anyone who was interested in hearing it. They've floated around a bit here and there, but now I would like to share them directly with you.

These 'albums' aren't for sale and never will be. Never-ever. It was just really important for me at this point in my career to act creatively without any consideration for money or press or anything other than art. I guess it could be said that this is just something I had to do for myself.

Finally, these recordings were made at home with crappy gear and were mixed in headphones that are 15 years old and were never very good in the first place. So they are pretty lo-fi. So for the few of you who will hear them, they're best heard in headphones.

Head on over to the website, to check it out.
And, if you are unfamiliar with Buck 65, here are a couple videos for your auditory pleasure.
First, Wicked and Weird off his 04 album This Right Here is Buck 65

And next from 07's Situation is a live studio performance of Way Back When

I've not yet listened to it - I am in the middle of downloading it - but I just thought I would share. Hopefully a review/impressions will come.... eventually.
