the zookeepers: ballin' outrageous

Not only is Ballin' Outrageous by The Zookeepers one of my favourite records of the year, it is also available for free over at the band’s site! Ballin' Outrageous is half an hour of incredible cross-genre journey—from loud screamy vocal ("Ballin' Outrageous") and folk ballads ("Bubbling Brine" and "Mohono") to messy lo-fi noise punk ("Fat Tax") and electro synth pop ("Chicken", "Beautiful World", and "Helio Pause")—it is the most creative record of the year! Another great thing about this record is that it fun, witty, and at times, quite foolish! Ballin' Outrageous is DIY music at its finest... what are you waiting for?! Go discover one of the best albums of 2009 for FREE over at The Zookeepers’ site!

Bubbling Brine [wicked-cool song]
Beautiful World [super-wicked-cool song]

really like this album, this might just be me but it doesn't seem like you can download for free? not that i mind too much cos its worth paying for, but if im gonna pay for it, i wanna have a hard copy i can keep forever not just mp3s

That's weird... it was definitely free up till recently... only "Beautiful World" is free now.

And I feel the same way about paying for an actual physical copy over digital files.

awww i was about a week too late :(

new question, any idea where i can pick this album up in CD, i dont think its sort that would make it into your local HMV

I am not sure if there is a physical CD at this point, but if I find anything, I will let you know right away!
