WFMU and the Free Music Archive are proud to bring you a fresh episode of Radio Free Culture, a bi-weekly podcast exploring issues at the intersection of digital culture and the arts. 

In this episode, Cheyenne Hohman, RFC host and current Director of the FMA, spoke to Vito Petruzzelli from the group Vitamin Pets, about their recent "Premix" Contest. The band released 69 stems from their most recent album, "Horse Helpers of the High Country," before the record's release date - with an open call for "premixes," that is - tracks that were produced using the stems before anyone (except the Vitamin Pets themselves) knew what the songs should have sounded like! 

FMA Volunteer Ethan has compiled a few tracks from the premix album, "The Refreshingly Hothouse Porch," as well as from the Vitamin Pets new release, "Horse Helpers of the High Country," so you can listen and compare!
