Editorial Reviews

Product Description

"Net Neutrality" is the principle that preserves an open internet. It's all about choice, freedom of expression and access to information. It's also how many of us discover new music. But if big telecommunications and cable companies have their way, you may only be able to hear what they want you to hear.


That's why net neutrality is so important to musicians, fans and the independent sector. Many of today's most talented artists are demonstrating their support of an open Internet where all users can access the lawful content of their choice without corporate interference. Future of Music Coalition and Thirsty Ear Recordings have brought 15 top-notch acts together for the "Rock The Net: Musicians for Net Neutrality" CD.


Wilco, Bright Eyes, They Might Be Giants, Portastatic, Aimee Mann, Guster, Matthew Shipp, Palomar, The Wrens, DJ Spooky, BC Camplight, David Bazan, David Miller, Free Form Funky Freqs The Classic Brown and blink.have all donated an original track to the compilation.


FMC's Rock The Net campaign was established to increase musicians awareness about the importance of net neutrality. Certain Telecommunications and Cable Companies would like to charge content providers higher fees for the faster loading of their sites, which could alter the way we access the web. The result would be an internet where those who couldn't afford to- or didn't want to- pay a toll would be stuck in the slow lane. This would be a tremendous blow to musicians, who depend on open internet for freedom of choice.

i don't like every song (never do on a compilation, right?), but it was cheap enough to be worth it.
