music is free now

good news! we're finished with the new album and we're going to make it available digitally this tuesday. i've thought alot about how to put it out. my instinct still says we should give the music away, so that's what we're going to be doing, via download. our main goal is to spread the word about our music as far and wide as possible, and we don't know of any better way to do this.

if you'd like to support beat radio, it is greatly appreciated. here are some ways you can do it:

-we're also putting out safe inside the sound as a limited edition cd, with handmade artwork. 250 copies will be made. you can purchase one here:

-our debut record the great big sea is available at cdbaby and itunes.

-you can also make a donation via paypal:

-otherwise, please pass the music along to your friends! make mixtapes, write blogs, share on facebook, email mp3 links. more than anything, we just want people to hear the songs.

All the money we make goes back in to the band, and is put towards our goal of spreading the music further. Here are some goals we have for the coming months:

-vinyl pressings of both albums - because vinyl is better.
-t-shirts - because t-shirts are cool.
-hiring a small independent promotion company- to help us get our music places that we can't on our own.
-tour support - we want to come play your town.
-studio upgrades - to keep making better and/or cooler sounding recordings.

anyway, i just want to say thanks to you guys for all your support over the last couple years. i can't wait for you to hear the new album.

all the best,
