Salty Pirates are some loveable tweeish Swedes. They don’t have a lot of business sense and only hope to release their music for free and make it available to the world. I’ve been writing about them for well over a year and they just got a song placed on a compilation which is the first time one of their songs has officially been released.
However their new song is availabel now online. It’s the lovely and quite upbeat and peppy song “Shark Attack”.
UPDATE – Sorry but you guys crashed their site and both the song and the homepage is down. If you downloaded the song and can email it (firstname.lastname@example.org) back to me that’d be great and I’ll host it myself and put it back up. Thanks.
UPDATE OF THE UPDATE – Thanks to Stephane for sending the mp3 of Shark Attack back to me. It’s up again now.
I don’t do many contests. The bulk of them being offered are through PR people who are just trying to pad the bottom line but a few weeks back It’s A Trap offered up the new vinyl-only U.S. release of Hello Saferide’s Introducing… Of course I couldn’t pass it up. I have one copy of this (it’ll be rare and collectible once It’s A Trap sells out some time next week!) which will go to a comment picked randomly. So add a comment and possibly win. Contest closes tomorrow at 5pm central time, I’ll pick one lucky winner. Chances are you’re not going to win right? So buy it here now.
