The Alex Dezen led project, known as The Damnwells, have offered up their latest CD, One Last Century for free via a special offer over at Paste Magazine. The band which has had some line-up re-shuffling, has been quiet for the past several years since 2006's 'Air Stereo'. The reason for the free download according to Dezen goes like this ..." I suppose the hardest thing to explain to people is why I’m giving this record away".... later adding ...“I have never worked so hard or put so much of myself into a collection of recorded songs. It is for just this reason that I want to give it away. To me it makes perfect sense. I just want people to hear this music, and I don’t want them to have to enter into some kind of contractual agreement with a third party to do so.
Just go to www.pastemagazine.com/thedamnwells and you can download the record for free.
