Netaudio hero Lee Rosevere debuted his newest EP exclusively on the FMA, but it sure won't stay put here for long! These instrumental jams are too good not to share, and you are encouraged to do so -- you can even use them in your own work as long as you follow the terms of the EP's Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike license. It's no wonder Lee's song "Do What You Can" has risen to the top of the FMA charts ever since it was first featured by Dan Misener of CBC Radio's tech/culture program Spark.
The new EP, Colourless Green Ideas Sleep Furiously, offers six more radio-friendly instrumentals (Lee works in radio during the day!) with a knack for funky-drumming and abstract-lounge/exotica.
Lee's been been making music since 1985, but only his post-1990 recordings survive. He started archiving his creative output online as soon as this became feasible, and he's produced quite a body of work. The FMA proudly hosts a baker's dozen albums feat Mr Rosevere, curated by the likes of WM_Recordings, Comfort Stand, Creative Commons, Oddio Overplay, and Lee's own netlabel; Happy Puppy Records. Remember the Music for Vampires compilation Oddio Overplay introduced us to back in November? Yeah, that's on Happy Puppy!
