Little by little (for free)

Harvey Danger is pretty good band from the northwest, and they have had their most recent album out for a month now. Also, they've made it freely available as mp3s. No strings, no catches. And this isn't some oversight or misjudgment on their part. They actually have a pretty lengthy explanation of why they're doing it:
...This is by no means a manifesto. We don'?t pretend to be the first band to spin a variation of the shareware distribution model. We love record labels and record stores. We buy lots of CDs and are committed to supporting independent music. We're not a bunch of fake Marxists. We'?re just trying to be smart capitalists so we can sustain our lives as musicians. This is an experiment. We'?ll let you know how it goes...

Not a Santa Claus complex. Just smart guys trying to get more people to listen to their music.
