Download the New Nine Inch Nails Album “The Slip” For Free

Trent Reznor and the Nine Inch Nails (NIN) are offering up their new album “The Slip” as a multi-format download that is currently only available by downloading it.  The best part is either the fact that it is free (and not degraded sound quality) or that they encourage you to send them remixes of the album again.

You have to give them a valid email address and they will send you the link to choose your format.  There is even a choice of “above CD quality” audio and of course the hi-res album artwork is available as well.

This is either a really huge publicity stunt that will spring board users into some sort of new way of spending money or it is a brilliant stroke of acknowledging (like Jay-Z just did with Live Nation or Disturbed did by offering two new tracks on Rock Band DLC before they can be bought as mp3′s just by pre-ordering the album at Best Buy ) that selling “CD’s” is not THE way to make money off of your music anymore.  That being said, if you want to support the band or feel the need to hold an actual physical album, NIN says there will be CD and vinyl versions available in July.

Raconteurs New Album (“Consolers of the Lonely”) Done and on Shelves in a Week

White Stripes fans, you gotta love this. Jack White’s “other band,” the Raconteurs announced today that they are done with their new album…and that it’s coming out in all formats in 1 week:

In order to release an album that will ‘not be defined by it’s [sic] first weeks [sic] sales, pre-release promotion, or by someone defining it FOR YOU before you get to hear it,’ the Raconteurs have opted to release their just-completed album next week. In a press release signed by the band…the Raconteurs say that their second album, Consolers of the Lonely, will be available in digital, CD, and vinyl formats March 25, after being completed earlier this month. It’s an unprecedented move for a band releasing an album via a major label, in this case, Warner Brothers.

Right on, bros. I’m sold. This buy is a shoo-in given that one of the Trumpet staff’s finest moments included the Raconteurs at Lollapalooza 2006 (where they were one of 832 bands who played Gnarls Barkley’s “Crazy”…but at least they did it best…other than Skee-Lo of course) where they blew the roof off Grant Park. If I had a Youtube vid of Pumpkin + the butt-grabbers during the Kanye show…and Armando’s hair.

Anyway, Jack White is now officially a Trumpet mancrush in my book. This is a great stunt. Review in 1 week.

Eliot Spitzer Song Parody “Client #9″ and Ashley Alexandra Dupre “What We Want”

There has been plenty said already about the Eliot Spitzer Emperor Club VIP sex scandal. For now the “news” has stopped trickling in and the entertainment world is sinking their teeth into it. There is a song parody called “Client #9″ that is a loose version of “Love Potion #9” by The Searchers.

Details about the “Spitzer Girl” known as “Kristen” have surfaced as well. According to Ashley Alexandra Dupre’s MySpace page, her real-life personality (sans prostitution), she is an aspiring singer. Her profile features her pop/r&b song “What We Want”. Her “Top 8″ friends (actually only 5 make the cut) are Whitney Houston, Madonna, Mary J. Blige, Amy Winehouse, and Celine Dion. That lineup has had its share of issues as well.

Bonus mostly Unrelated YouTube Coverage:
If you never saw the above mentioned Celine Dion on Larry King back in 2005 speaking emotionally about helping with Hurricane Katrina, please do so now. Kanye West was probably on to something when he said that “George Bush doesn’t care about black people” and Celine made her thoughts well known as well.  I do have to preface that her message is very much appreciated and heartfelt and quite frankly she may have even come off as inspiring.

…that being said, this has some hilarious lines that are golden.

Nobody can open any roofs? …take a kayak, go into those walls… big guns, what’s that? …they have never touched anything in their lives, let them touch those things for once.

Viral Video: Exclusive Dru Hill Reunion then Break Up On Radio

1990′s R&B group Dru Hill was officially set to get back together on a morning radio show in their hometown Baltimore, Maryland. WERQ-FM 92.3 had the four original members, Sisqo, Jazz, Nokio, and Woody Rock all on the air on Thursday March 6, 2008.

Everything was going well as the platinum group with 7 top 40 hits was revealing their plans of a reunion. The interview goes as expected until Woody (approx 2:25 in the video) claims he is quitting again to follow a mission with god.

Dru Hill tour dates are still listed for the “Ladies Night Out Tour” with Bell Biv Devoe, Keith Sweat, and Toni! Tony! Tone’!. There are doubts into the authenticity of the fallout as some believe it may be a publicity stunt.

Either way, “The Thong Song” was one of the greatest moments in musical achievement in my opinion. This video is popular on YouTube… even if Dru Hill is not anymore.

Finger Eleven’s Bad Lyrics: Paralyzer

This Finger Eleven song Paralyzer has been out for almost a year (March 6 will officially mark a full year of sucktitude). I wouldn’t care so much, but they are STILL PLAYING THIS THING ON THE RADIO. Actually, the tune is a decent hook (decent, I say) and I remember thinking the song was OK when I first heard it. Then they played it so many times I actually listened to the lyrics. GOOD F&#ING GOD. Perhaps if I clown those lyrics a bit on the Trump I’ll feel better…so here goes my cathartic attempt at satiation:

I hold on so nervously
To me and my drink holdin on to what…your junk, bro?
I wish it was cooling me we get it…you’re hot
But so far has not been good “not good” = “shitty”
It’s been shitty (yes, yes…you told Brandt. Brandt told me)
And I feel awkward as I should awkward…how bout nauseous?
This club has got to be Pretentious. adj. claiming or demanding a position
The most pretentious thing of distinction or merit, especially when unjustified
Since I thought you and me (an inanimate object can’t claim/demand anything)
Well I am imagining
A dark lit place well, at least “place” rhymes with “place” and “place”
Or your place or my place

Well I’m not paralyzed Translation: I’ve seen better but I’d still do ya
But I seem to be struck by you
I wanna make you move
Because you’re standing still
If your body matches OK–if that’s the case then her body can undress
What your eyes can do you with her eyes (i.e.–not undress you)
You’ll probably move right through
Me on my way to you ???????????????????????????

I hold out for one more drink
Before I think
I’m looking too desperately adjective/adverb
But so far has not been fun
I should just stay home
If one thing really means one ?????????????????????
This club will hopefully Active wish
Be closed in three weeks (WHICH ONE IS IT BRO?)
That would be cool with me Passive approval
Well I’m still imagining
A dark lit place second verse…same as the 1st
Or your place or my place

Well I’m not paralyzed
But I seem to be struck by you
I wanna make you move
Because you’re standing still THANK YOU FOR NOT WRITING A 3RD VERSE
If your body matches
What your eyes can do
You’ll probably move right through
Me on my way to you
[repeat 3x]

You’ll probably move right through
Me on my way to you
[repeat]

I got the lyrics at:

NOPE…I still hate it.

Censors – Now Hiring?

I’d have to say that I thoroughly enjoy censorship. I do not mean that I like the act of censorship, but more the tomfoolery that comes with it. I love when people are late bleeping something out or when people cause the news people to go off on live tv (ala Opie & Anthony’s “Attack On The Media”). I also love when they blur something out and you still pretty much get the idea of what is going on. I mean how is that any kind of effective?

Cursing is the best. On the radio there are a handful of words not allowed. Artists and jockeys get around this by using other words with the same meanings or by using code words (ala drug deal spoofs). After awhile censors sometimes pick up on the innuendos and double entendres. Now the whole point of this article is that sometimes censors have absolutely no idea what is being discussed, portrayed, or sung. The people responsible for our country’s protection of offensive content often are as helpless as a third butt cheek. The youth of today are savvy and artists play to that. Your teens know what is going on and are in on the joke being played on parents and conservatives alike. Censors need to hire teens to decode what is going on. If you leave it to people that are out of touch, they will continue to get burned. note: I hope they neglect this warning.

Here is a song from 2003 that was one of the highest played for the year. “Get Low” by Lil Jon & The Eastside Boyz. I will decode it for the censors so that they realize what they put on the air. I will also thank them because this song is awesome. You’ll see that they at least missed one key word that pretty much makes the song.

Reviews a Comin’

The Trumpet will undoubtedly feature reviews of all nature. Today is Tuesday which means it is release day for cd’s, dvd’s and video games. I am going to write reviews of my weekly purchases from the big yellow and blue electronic superstore. I also try and make a trip to the theater every Friday and I’d like to write about those as well. So later today/tonight I will do both for those that may care.
