Barbara de Dominicis reviews

Our CD release by Italian singer Barbara de Dominicis is getting some great reviews in Italy. One site writes “Geniale, impalpabile, puro e divino”. Sound goods, even if you don’t speak Italian, right?

Below are links to some of the reviews (all in Italian):

- Rock Impressions
- LostHighways
- Revolving Doors

New free album download: The Hathaway Family Plot

Our latest free album release:

The Hathaway Family Plot – Wal*Mart-Approved Music
http://www.wmrecordings.com/releases/wm093.htm

Inspired by the increasing practice of musicians sponsored by corporations, these 16 tunes are The Hathaway Family Plot’s latest attempt to make music that is the anti-commodity: sloppy, unmarketable, and sometimes flagrantly difficult to listen to!

WFMU opens Free Music Archive – WM Recordings joins!

We promised you more news about partnerships with free music sites last week. Well, here’s the good news we’re dying to tell you: WM Recordings is now officialy added as a ‘curator’ of the recently opened Free Music Archive:

Free Music Archive

“The Free Music Archive is an interactive library of high-quality, legal audio downloads. The Free Music Archive is being directed by WFMU, the most renowned freeform radio station in America. Radio has always offered the public free access to new music. The Free Music Archive is a continuation of that purpose, designed for the age of the internet.

Inspired by Creative Commons and the open source software movement, the FMA provides a legal and technological framework for curators, artists, and listeners to harness the potential of music sharing. Every artist page will have a bio and links to the artists’ home page for users to learn more about the music they discover via the Free Music Archive. We also seek to compensate artists directly. Artist, album and song profiles will contain links to buy the full album from the artist and/or label’s preferred vendor(s). Users can also “tip” an artist if they like what they hear, sending a donation directly to the artists’ PayPal account. Artist profiles include tourdates, encouraging users to step away from the glowing computer screen and see some real live music.”

You can find our contributions here. We’ll add our complete catalog of free albums to the archive in the coming weeks.

WM Recordings releases on Mininova

Hot on the heels of our partnership with LegalTorrents comes more good news: we are now officially a “content distributor” at Mininova, the biggest torrent search engine and directory on the net.

Our complete catalog of free legal releases will be added to Mininova in the coming weeks. Six of our most recent releases are already available at www.mininova.org/user/WMRecordings.

Stay tuned for more exciting news, because we will start to distribute our releases through yet another large website soon!

New brunk album online now

We’re proud to present another free album by Belgian artist brunk:

brunk - insert coins to continue

brunk – insert coins to continue

A DIY eighties soundtrack filled with dusty hip hop beats, grooving bluesrock and straight forward metal riffs, heroic lo-fi guitar soloing and weird synth sounds – yes, bad taste, but great fun!

brunk is Bert Vanden Berghe, insert coins to continue is his fourth free WM Recordings release. Enjoy!

Another konstruKt CD review

The Dutch Vital Weekly newsletter/podcast has reviewed konstruKt’s “Akustikelektrik” CD:

“From the first moments it is evident that this improvising combo is inspired by the free jazz from 60s and 70s. The opening track begins with a long intro, slowly culminating in a hectic brew. Throughout, their improvisations are dominated by drums and percussion. Futaci is a Brötzmann-like powerplayer. Most characteristic and appealing however is Gaglar with his use of electronics and guitar like in “Kaptan Swing”. He is the most virtuoso player of this quartet.”

Buy this CD from CD Baby.
