And no, it’s not exactly like the way Radiohead tried it with pay what you like. There’s four volumes, each running nearly 30 minutes, of instrumental music. You can get a digital download of the whole thing for $5 or get the CD (including digital) for $10, or try the first volume for free, all here.
I decided to try it, since although I loved With Teeth, Year Zero left me colder with its non-organic feel (although I loved hearing about Trent leaking tracks himself by leaving flash drives in bathrooms). The new stuff is good, though to me it’s not really NIN without Trent singing, but I’ll probably pick it up – it’ll be good chill out music (the opposite effect most NIN music has on me).
