finally, there's a new myspace page commemorating brand new crime - the 1998 split cassette release from mic.edu (our old rap group) and our friends substance abuse.
there are four tracks from the tape up on the page. may i suggest you give them a listen and then consider becoming brand new crime's internet friend?
meanest man contest has just released a new digital ep through the fantastic plug research label. it's called some people and it features four brand new songs.
the cover art for some people was made by the incredible jeff hurlow. you can see more of his work at dosmasks.
we've put an mp3 of the ep's lead song online for you to check out. it's called "some people (just get off on breaking hearts)." the other tracks on the ep are "you and i," "working for the weak end," and "i would leave" (which is based on a christopher willits guitar sample).
in other exciting news, gold robot records has just launched a meanest man contest remix contest in support of our new grr 7inch.
download the acapella for "they do" here and email your remix to us at heymmc at gmail dot com by december 15, 2007. our favorite entries will be featured as part of a future mmc release.
and speaking of our new grr 7inch, "throwing away broken electronics" and all the other tracks from the single are now available digitally through retailers like itunes and emusic. if you're so from-the-future that you can't stand to even touch a physical music product, this is probably your best bet. but remember: if you buy a hard copy of the 7inch, you'll get a download code that gets you the mp3s for free.
