Music should be listened to and enjoyed at leisure on a stereo, mp3 player or your computer’s audio player – not while being force-fed advertising on Rupert Murdoch’s MySpace.
So when we came across this rather fiendish piece of technology today, we thought it only polite to share it with you. It instantly lets you download any song on a band’s MySpace page for free – and at its original quality. Go here http://file2hd.com/ before the site inevitably gets shut down.
It really comes into its own if you’re desperate to get hold of a song that is otherwise unobtainable, as was the case when we wanted to hear the first new material in two years from Glasgow legends MOGWAI, two corking unreleased live tunes by local rising stars WE WERE PROMISED JETPACKS and our latest tip for the top, English newcomers MUMFORD AND SONS.
