The Matches make lemonade
The Matches upcoming album, A Band in Hope, leaked. I gotta admit, the pirate in me is a smidge excited. Anyway, that’s not the point– the message they posted in response to the leak is:
How may you make payment to the musicians who created it? Glad you wondered. [Cut=Read on…]
When you download or rip the album, do something nice for a stranger. Give a dollar to one.org. Jumpstart a car. Give a rose to an old woman eating alone. Leave an open ended love letter in someone’s shoe at the gym. But actually, those examples are not as great as the ones you will come up with! Take a video of it on your camera or cameraphone or if you don’t have that, take a photo, or draw a picture, and send it to us (or yousendit.com it if it’s a big file) to us at email@example.com
Of course, when March 18th rolls around, it’s still hugely helpful to us if you buy the record. Yet we only ask that you purchase it if you love it and/or want to/ have the means to support us. By all means, download it first! Eagerly awaiting brilliant directorial debuts of good karma stirring.
