In a recent interview with Ethos, the Envy Corps said that music downloading is inevitable, and that you can either be cool about it like Radiohead or whine about it like Lars Ulrich. Clearly they've taken the Radiohead model, because they've made their first major-label release - "Dwell" - available to download free and legally in it's entireity through their website.

So anyway, here's a chance to check out the up-and-coming Ames band whether you've listened to them before or not. It's a very, very good album, and it's about time they bust out onto the national (and international) scene. Especially recommended if you like Radiohead, Travis, Coldplay or those other sorts of britpop bands (although I'm sure they're getting tired of those comparisons by now).
