Normally an album surfacing on a torrent site spells nightmares and headaches for bands and labels alike, but of late, it's been a new way for artists, such as Thom Yorke, to deliver music to the download hungry masses.
New York hip-hop group Ratking are the latest act to follow the trend, and have made their surprise new album 700 Fill available to download via Bit Torrent simply in exchange for an email address. The youngsters have been making slowly been making waves in the scene, and picking up famous fans such as Run The Jewels, Skepta, and Despot among others.
Their debut release, 2014's So It Goes, was met with critical acclaim, so I have high hopes for their second effort. I haven't even got round to listening to it myself, but that shouldn't stop anybody else from indulging.
