Equinox records has released a free ep, 'The 5inch Files', leading up to the release of 'One Year & A Day - A Sound Exposure Vol.2'. The free ep will also be available for as a very limited box set of five 5 inch records. The following contributed tracks to the ep: Vangel, Misanthrop, Aqua Luminus III., Mnemotrauma, J.Baracuz, B-Ju, SmoKey131, DJ Snatchatec & The Raincoatman. 'The 5inch files'
is surely worth your time to download. I've had it less than a week and according to my itunes I've listened to it about 10 times. There aren't any tracks I skip when I'm listening to it; but my favorite seems to be 'Yellow Cab' by J. Baracuz. I was not familiar with several of the artists that contributed; but thats going to change.
To get more info on snagging this limited release of 25, I would recommend you sign up for the Equinox Records email list. It will go on sale on January 25th at a couple online shops & maybe a few copies will be sold on ebay by Equinox, for 'a reasionable price'. Links & a track list are below.
So due to the level of interest in this limited release Equinox Records has upped the limited quantity available to 250. They are available now. Here are the links (from the Equinox email list):
