Go Kart Records – Six Free AlbumsAccompanying a biting letter to the RIAA (“The RIAA does NOT represent the views of the entire music industry”), this punk success story released six albums from their back catalog for download. The selections span from Plan A Project’s hardcore s/t to Pseudo Heroes’ punk-pop offering Prison of Small Perception.Preview | Download the Records
Girl Talk – Feed the AnimalsIf you don’t have a copy of this uber-popular mash-up mayhem, there’s no time like the present.
