First, Priceline came along and ruined the careers of travel agents everywhere. Now, the name-your-own-price concept has come to the music industry. But that's a good thing -- it means we can get killer deals on awesome music without feeling the guilt of being music pirates. And getting a penny for a song is better than nothing at all, right, musicians?
Well, that might be oversimplifying things a bit.
But awesome local singer-songwriter Jenny Carr is cool with letting fans decide how much to plunk down for her beautiful album Maybe Definitely Really for Sure.
The 12 tracks are available for download at jennycarr.bandcamp.com. You can pay the listed price of $9 or, for a limited time, enter in whatever amount that you feel like paying.
Either way, it's a steal. I reviewed Carr's album a few weeks ago. It's superb.
