Free Music: Donwill – Laura’s Tape
February 11, 2010


I'm not mad at this free album.  It's not amazing and it's not bad.  How I feel about Tanya Morgan has no bearing on what I think of this album.  It's okay.

To be honest, I've been a bit salty toward Tanya Morgan since an earlier tour they did a year or so ago. In an email announcing their next stop, it stated something to the effect of "If you're late to our show, you're a sorry piece of shit that doesn't deserve to listen to our music.  Expect to get clowned".  They were opening for a larger act and I had gathered hardly anyone was showing for their sets.  They were probably a bit agitated about that. 

Now I'm paraphrasing on a huge scale here, but that's the way I read what they sent.  From that point, I didn't pay these guys or Donwill much mind.  I just couldn't bring myself to listen to or respect a group who could be such primadonnas so early in their musical career (not that it's even acceptable once you reach any type of status).   You're gonna tell me, no, demand that I arrive on time?  Me?  The debit card carrying, exorbitant ticket price paying music fan / patron?  Oh no, no, no my friends.  So for that reason, I probably will never go out of my way to tell my friends about their music outside of this.

I hope this drives home a very important point for you independent artists out there.  BE HUMBLE.  Go ahead, have a slice of the pie, it's good and good for you.  Because if you don't eat that pie and get all your minerals, irons and niacins, music fans like myself are going to write your asses off faster than 50 Cent's 2009 expenditures at tax season.  

All that being said, here's Donwill's latest effort that I probably wouldn't have bothered listening to had it not been for the almighty Band Camp and the ease of hitting play right off the site.

Enjoy.
