Hell yeah for more Chad Smith, Anarchy Club & Ghost Brigade.
Some cool interesting stuff here. For me though, only one for sure and a couple "maybe"s. I know a bit about possible future stuff though so that's got me excited and it's not like I can buy songs right now anyway. Still haven't even been able to buy The Plot To Bomb The Panhandle and that was one of my most wanted RB songs :/
anyone have a 160 point code and feeling generous?!
(I'm kidding, mostly)
I Am King Tony - "Stereo Stereo" available on RBN!
IAmKingTony @ Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter
Better late than never, but as I said- we had two announcements. This one just took a lot of technical effort to pull off.
As I've said in the past, Fairwood's mission is to bring people the best music they didn't know existed. We started with RBN because changing the context that media appears in is one great way to get people interested in media they might otherwise not be. Another great way is to fiddle with the overall value proposition.
To that end, I am proud to finally announce:
The Indie Allstars Bundle
If you're familiar with Humble Bundle, this is the same general thing. We've collected 15 artists- 8 of them from RBN- and grouped them all together for whatever price you want to pay. That's 10 full-length albums for however much or little you think they're worth. Pay over the average ($6.25 right now) and you get 5 EPs as well. All in high-quality MP3, beating the average gets you lossless FLAC as well. Genres range all the way from hip-hop to blues rock to post-metal.
But far be it for us to just sell something- a portion (that you define) of your purchase goes to help VH1 Save the Music and the Electronic Frontier Foundation. If you really want, you can just donate to those causes through this project and get 15 albums in return.
The albums are (RBN ones highlighted):
Pac-Man Fever by Buckner & Garcia
Yours As Fast As Mine by The Main Drag
The Silent City by Stagehands
PPPPPP: The VVVVVV Soundtrack by Magnus 'SoulEye' Palsson
Noplace Like Nowhere by Jim's Big Ego
When the Dust Settles by The Parlor Soldiers
The Darker the Sky Is, The Brighter the Stars Shine by Jonay
Mo'Fi by Crooked Saws
Lactophilia by Leche de Tigre
Paths of the Restless by Cosmonauts Day
Wartime Songs by The Blue News
Gravity by Diggs Duke
self-titled EP by Dance for the Dying
self-titled EP by Mafia Track Suit
Be My Guest by Through a Glass, Darkly
The bundle is up for a fortnight, so if you're interested you've got through the 19th to grab it!
(And I'd like to seriously thank TheOzone and HMXLachesis for helping get some of this roster together.)
(Also if you're getting error messages, just try again in an hour or so. The DNS is acting up.)

The website seems to be having technical difficulties or I'd go for it this instant.
EDIT: I'll go for it in the morning, then. Hope the average doesn't shoot up by then.

Currently shooting for the top 10 total Pro Keys ranks on 360.
I'm going for:
An Endless Sporadic
The Dillinger Escape Plan
(possibly) Yogurt With Sprinkles
I'll add more if I find more announcements that I liked.
