New Music: Surprise NIN

Massive apologies for the sudden lapse in posting. We're experiencing some extreme difficulties with our laptop's internet connection, and until that gets worked out, expect slightly more sporadic posting. Hopefully it'll all be resolved in the next couple weeks.

In the meantime, let's celebrate the fact that NIN followed in The Raconteurs footsteps and sprung a new album on us out of nowhere, and then followed in Radiohead's footsteps by giving away the album for free on their website. It's called "The Slip", and it's Trent's attempt at a healthy balance between the extreme-left-center experimental work from "Ghosts" and his Saul Williams productions and the (relatively) more accessible work of "With Teeth" "Year Zero". The album is uneven at best, but still has some good moments... namely "Echoplex", which we've uploaded to iMeem just for you.
