I am experiencing a renewing interest in new music, and in my quest for musical bliss, I’ve discovered a new band that I enjoy immensely. For the past few days, when I wake up, the first song I put on are a couple of songs from this band.

It’s really one guy working out of his own bedroom, but the beauty is that the music is fresh and fantastic. So I did a first in my life; I bought an album on the internet, directly from the artist. I directly supported an artist that I like. If that’s not a sign of a great digital music revolution, I don’t know what is. It’s a feel-good thing to know I’m supporting an artist without a middleman taking all or most of the proceeds.

So, say hi to your mom.
