Red Hot Chili Peppers release free 5 song EP
« on: April 01, 2012, 09:55:25 PM »
Just two days ago the Red Hot Chili Peppers released a free 5 song live EP on their website. The EP is available for straight download from the site and is completely available to the public. The band released this EP as an indication that the European Tour was over and that RHCP are kicking off their U.S tour, and that the funk is back! I was skeptical about this release and thought it might've been an early April Fools joke, however it was completely legit. I was also skeptical because live music albums and EP's typically aren't all that great depending on the band, but I should've expected that RHCP would be great. The live songs are phenomenal and I was pleasantly surprised by both the quality and how good the band sounds. The free live EP is comprised of 3 old tracks and 2 new songs from the newest album. So, good news for those of you who kinda wanna stray from the new album, three old tracks just for you. So, its a good mix of old & new, plus it's free and everything. I feel like it was a pleasant gesture to the fans. All the recordings are good and the band is on point. "Give It Away" is actually 10 minutes long, full of some cool guitar and drum stuff toward the end. Dani California is the highlight for me, it's performed almost to absolute perfection. Hope anyone who checks it out enjoys. :)

Sweet. Incubus just released a live 5 song EP through their Face book page too! Keep the free music coming!
Dedicated. Disgusting. Disturbing.

I'm just sittin' on this merry-go-round, and the music is too loud..

Missed that Incubus freebie. Don't see it on their page. Do you have the link by chance?
