Mark Mallman, Sailor Martin Give Away Free Music Online
(Mark Mallman - "Do You Believe In Breaking Up?")
Ten years is a pretty significant amount of time to be in the music business. So, naturally, it's perfectly normal to reflect your successes during that tenure in rock, even if you're an insanely extroverted rock and roll man like Mark Mallman. From Decider MPLS comes the news that Mallman has opted to give away his "hits" collection Loneliness in America (Best of 1998-2008) away for the cost of free on his website.
As for a 2009 effort, Mallman apparently decided to scrap his initial recordings after a series of life-changing events. To read more, head here. Watch the video to "Do You Believe In Breaking Up?" at the top of the post.
Speaking of crazy characters and free music, Sailor Martin, a man described as "the fetal alcohol syndrome love-child of Daniel Johnston and Tom Waits" by our friends at Switchblade Comb, has released his first full-length album as a free download. Titled "This is Sailor Martin," the album is described by Martin himself as "15 melodies to delight the ear and shock the squares, comprising 30 minutes of mirthful melodies." Judge for yourself by heading here.
