The Wild Waves Whist

The formerly download-only version of 50 Foot Wave’s Free Music EP is now being distributed in c.d. form in the UK and Europe via ThrowingMusic/Essential at a very special price. You can still, of course, download for free and I am posting the mp3s below as the folks at ThrowingMusic have suggested that these be shared, “in any and every way you see fit.”

The concept is simple – they want their music to be heard and hopefully will gain some new listeners from their generous offering. Kristin Hersh is adamant about their efforts. She says, “If people enjoy these songs and are excited by them, we ask that they share them with others. The music business is about fame and huge profits -- egos and greed -- music itself, is not.” We hear ya sister! But the band cannot survive on gratitude alone, so donations are being accepted via their “virtual tip jar” here:
