Yeah, that seems like a bunch of stuff that I care about, all intersecting at the same place.
And check out this explanation:
Our music is purposely released independently. This guarantees that our message is not tampered with or compromised by those whose financial interests form the basis of their decision-making. We are committed to providing Christ-centered, excellent music that stays true to the authentic, rugged hip-hop aesthetic that we love while bringing glory to God -and at an affordable price. And when we can, we will give it away for free. And thatâ€™s the case with â€œThe Grassrootsâ€ CD. You are important to us. We are convinced that a loyal few is better than a fickle multitude. Our hope is that you will enjoy our music, pass it along to others, and allow us to serve you again in the future.
That’s great for so many reasons.
(FYI, if you end up on a splash page instead of the download page, click through to LampMode.com and look for the Goodies tab. The album is called the Grassroots EP.)
