OTD Exclusive: Big Digits

DOWNLOAD: Big Digits, "Music is Magic" (mp3)

OTD is back. (More soon on gators, Disney, and the genius of Southwest Florida radio.) And just in time, because the fishwrap told people to come here today for the new Big Digits track, which of course you all are fiending for because they're about to wreck shop with Hot Chip and the aforementioned new dance-punk geniuses on the block, Blanks. -- plus the last minute addition of Phoenix Circuits columnist/DJ extraordinaire/electronic-music documentarian DAVID DAY -- at Great Scott, which we flew back early from FLA just to catch.

For more on this show, you should go to the Compound440r blog, where they have some mp3s that are way too illegal for us to host.

So we're in a hurry, we want you to hear this now, in lieu of bloggerspeak we give you the description Big Digits' Mac Swell sent us with the track:

Here is one our new songs: "Music Is Magic." We recorded it right before we went on tour, burned it to a cdr, and sold it as part of a 6 song 'tour only' ep. also, it was posted as a secret mp3 on the 440r blog for like a second but has long been unavailable.  so some kids may have it already, esp. on the west coast, but since i've been back, i've retooled it and re-mixed it a bit, fixing some stuff i didn't like about the original mix. whenever we record enuff songs for another full length, this song will be on it, but who knows when that'll be.

also, i feel like this song is appropriate in that, it's kinda about how music should be a shared experience. by extension, i believe and promote that music should be free and support people sharing their music with one another. Music is a beautiful thing especially when it's a shared experience. It is awesome to walk down the street, iPod in hand, rocking out to your favorite dance tracks, but if you enjoy that song so much, wouldn't some of your friends, or beyond that, a stranger with similar tastes? Yes, of course.

make music a shared experience by making mixtapes, posting+downloading songs on the web, or dancing together at a club.

sound kinda hippie?  oh well.
fuck metallica.

peace and love,

- Mac
