    Amazon has a whole lot of digital albums up for free download. Stuff like Augustana, Brand New, Say Anything, and Boys Like Girls. At first I thought this was some weird “sign up for our whatever program and then get the albums in our proprietary format” thing. Nope. I downloaded a zip file full of mp3s for that Augustana album as a test.1


    1. Seriously, if you don’t have that album, get it.

    Well I just went through and added a bunch of stuff to the MP3 cart. Got to the place your order page and received an error saying that the item was not available, then went to a 404 page. sigh.

    That moment when it's like OH COME ON. Hah. I think it saves what's in that cart for you though, wonder which one it's giving you the error for. (Hey, I see you add that Good Charlotte remix album!)

    Just picked up Deja, and since I feel like I should pay for this art, I'll probably be buying the vinyl soon.

    That's good because I didn't want to go back through all the artists again, haha. I think it might have been giving me an error for having 24 items in the cart (Couldn't pass up getting free Jefferson Starship!)

    Not seeing any of the stuff mentioned above. Looks like I'm too late for free/cheap stuff as usual. :verysad:

    Woah, yeah, so many albums just went away. I wonder if there was a limit on them?

    Yeah, even the ones saying 0.00 are now giving me 404 errors.

    Weird.

    There's not a lot left...but the Emmy the Great & Tim Wheeler track is from a fantastic little Xmas album.

    Hopefully at least a few people grabbed it! Still such an impressive leap from their previous album, which was already good.

    Everyone who hasn't heard Can't Love, Can't Hurt should still get it into their ears one way or another

    Of course. Lots of things I just couldn't get to in the 1.0 but have started to tweak and change.
