Earlstown Winter - Latest W.R. Signing!

On September 21st 2006, Worn Records and the up and coming folk/rock sensation Earlstown Winter made it official. After several months spent negotiating, crossing T's and dotting I's, an agreement was reached and inked last night over some Glen Feddich and a few pints. "We're both relieved to have this deal done so we can get to work on finishing the record." commented Jonathan Truefitt, main songwriter of Earlstown Winter.

The best kept secret in music, Earlstown Winter is a wistful sounding country/folk rock collective who wallow in sounds reflecting lost love, late night drinking and drives down endless highways on cold winter days. "It's amazing to have one of the most incredible up and coming singer/songwriters on board." John Simmonds, founder of Worn Records commented about the newly signed Jonathan Truefitt. An album entitled Easy Roads, Easy Skies is already near completion, and will be ready for release before years end. A profile will be posted in the Talent section of this site very soon, but in the mean time you can find more info at the Earlstown Winter Myspace page. Check back for updates and more info or better yet subscribe to the Worn Records RSS Feed in your address bar.

Myspace to Sell MP3s From Unsigned Bands

The Internetsoldrinero writes "Yahoo! news is hosting a story about a new competitor to Apple's iTunes Music Store. Nearly all the other iTunes competitors have been strongly controlled by the music industry, shackled in DRM, and giving little back to artists. The new MySpace music store will feature vanilla MP3 downloads at prices set by the individual bands (3 million of them!), all or nearly all of whom are unsigned musicians with no industry affiliation. Is this the example we have all been waiting for of how the Internet will obviate the business model of the recording industry?"

Bob Dylan and iTunes sell un-rippable music

Boing Boing: Bob Dylan and iTunes sell un-rippable music

Cory Doctorow:If you buy the latest Bob Dylan album from the iTunes Music Store, be prepared to lose four of the tracks when you burn it to CD. Four of the tracks on "Modern Times," which is only sold as a whole album on the iTMS, are only made available as video files, and iTunes isn't designed to allow you to burn the audio portion of a video when you burn your CD. read more...
