Dark Night of the Soul
Gizmodo, taking a rare break from hyping up Steve Job’s over-priced iDevices, alerted me to the existence of the rather excellent album Dark Night of the Soul, from the same genius responsible for the Grey Album. Apparently, like the Grey Album, DNOTS will never see a retail release 🙁
I’ve been listening to this all day now, “Just War” and “Revenge” are early favourites!
After “legal battles,” Danger Mouse’s new album has been shelved by his label, EMI. But fearful that his work would never be heard, Danger Mouse came up with an idea to get his music out there while at the same time showing his anger at EMI. The album, entitled Dark Night of the Soul, will be sold as a “100+ page book” of photographs inspired by the music and taken by David Lynch, and will include a blank CD-R to be filled with torrented mp3s. All copies will be clearly labelled: ‘For Legal Reasons, enclosed CD-R contains no music. Use it as you will.’
