Help drive a stake through the heart of a record label

With Radiohead the highest profile band lately to wreak havoc with the major labels by not relying on them for distribution, it could be turning into a feeding frenzy. tipped me off to a free download of a new album called The Inevitable Rise and Liberation of Niggy Tardust from hip-hop artist Saul Williams, courtesy of Nine Inch Nails ├╝berlord Trent Reznor. It's kinda great.
Described by Williams as "ghetto gothic... hard-core dance," the album is available for free in 192kbps MP3 format or for $5 in 320kbps MP3 or lossless FLAC format.
