At this EXACT moment in time, I’m listening to the new Saul Williams album, The Inevitable Rise and Liberation of Niggy Tardust, out today (which is fortuitous timing when you consider this). Williams collaborated with Trent Reznor of NIN on this release and they’re releasing it Radiohead/Public Enemy-style: you can either download the album for free, or you can pay a mere $5. I’ve sung high praise about Williams before, and something tells me that this album is going to be a highlight of his career. I’m only two songs in — I’ll follow-up with a proper write up later — but early reports from trusted sources confirm this hunch. Do your ears (and liver) a favor and put the $5 you would have spent on an after-work beer towards this release. GET IT HERE.
