Earmint "Thank You Thank You"
Radiohead isn't the only band to be giving away full-length albums. Self-motivated DIY man and hip-hop artist Earmint created an album of 10 tracks he is distributing for free through his website, with many alternate versions of the release's CD artwork available at his FLICKR account. In the vein of Sixtoo, Madlib, and others who clearly know their samplers inside and out, the man born Robert Krums delivers track after track of crisp, soulful beats with much versatility. Did we mention the entire album is free?
