Thrill Jockey Makes MP3 Advent Calendar
- Words: Jennifer Marston
We always wondered what Christmas in the age of the digital download might involve (besides slumping CD sales), and Thrill Jockey is providing one such answer. The Chicago-based label of all things eclectic has teamed up with FINA, its digital download store, and created an MP3 advent calendar that will run on the TJ site until December 24.
Each day, a new, DRM-free, 320kbps MP3 will appear on the calendar's site, in its appropriate "doorway." Just click on said doorway and a download window will appear. Yesterday featured High Places’ "From Stardust to Sentience" and today's download is "Komokosaka Te Na Basi," from the Occidental Brothers Dance Band International. No word as to what might lie behind the remaining doors, but that's the whole point of an advent calendar, right?
