Out of It
OUT OF IT Canadian self-deprecating alterna-rock Internet phenom Brad Sucks has released Out of It, his long-awaited second full-length release. Out of It is the 10-song follow-up to Brad's successful and influential fan-funded 2003 album I Don't Know What I'm Doing. Out of It displays Brad\'s growth as a catchy songwriter and producer with listeners finding themselves humming at odd moments of the day to the album\'s vocals, hard-hitting drums and heavy guitars. His inimical wit and darkly sly attitude in songs like Dropping Out of School (track 1) and Certain Death (track 2) support melodic hooks with lyrical inventiveness. Brad\'s open approach to music is at the album\'s very foundation. The title track Out of It (track 9) features an Internet-orchestrated sing-a-long with recordings submitted by fans, followers and musicians. PAY WHAT YOU WANT PIONEER Out of It continues Brad Sucks' commitment to offering music on a pay-what-you-want basis. Payment is optional and file-sharing is heavily encouraged. The entire audio source will be released free of charge for those that desire it for remixing or use in their own work. Brad\'s first album I Don't Know What I'm Doing has received several hundred remixes and spawned two remix albums.
