The Unknown: Spoon - Get Nice!

I had a good response from my fans picking up the Spoon album this week. You can still get it from my Amazon store although the $3.99 offer has ended.

So, as promised, I'm posting Spoon's very rare "Get Nice." A bonus CD of demos included on some copies of GAx5. But there's a catch. Sorta. I'm asking everyone to donate some money to the victims of the Haiti quake.

Below are FIVE ways to donate money to Haiti relief and get free music out of it. I'm asking everyone to please give something. You can only download Spoon's "Get Nice" if you donate. I'm not going to check and it's on the honor system.

1. Music For Relief - This is a charity run by Linkin Park. Donate whatever you want...and in return you'll get a compilation of free music, featuring new tracks by LP, Dave Matthews, Slash, All American Rejects, Hoobastank, Lupe Fiasco, and more.

2. Paste Magazine - Again, donate what ever you feel comfortable doing and get access the Paste Vault, featuring over a hundred tracks (some rare) by artists like She & Him, Andrew Bird, Ben Folds, Emmylou Harris, Passion Pit, Jason Isabel, The Avett Brothers, Jayhawks, Low Anthem, String Cheese Incident, and many many more.

3. Hope For Haiti Now - This is the full concert from Friday's benefit show on TV. This will only run you $7.99. Featuring artists like Bruce Springsteen, Alicia Keyes, Justin Timberlake, Coldplay, Jay-Z, Dave Matthews, John Legend, Shakira, Sting, Bono & The Edge, Mary J. Blige, Beyonce, and others.

4. WilcoWorld - Wilco is offering two full concerts for a $15 donation to Doctors Without Borders or Oxfam. Both shows are from 2009 and are pretty epic.

5. Eddie Vedder - My City of Ruins - Eddie's live cover of Bruce's song. Only .99 cents and it goes to Haiti relief.

Thanks for your support.

I only now found this. I would really, really love to get ahold of "Get Nice" -- would you still be up for giving it to someone? :) I've donated to Hope for Haiti Now and am willing to donate elsewhere, too, well... when my paycheck gets in next week. Either way... I'm dyin' to hear "Get Nice."
