Fantastic Merlins Go Radiohead with "Song of the Month"

The Minnesota-based chamber jazz combo Fantastic Merlins launched a revamped website last year. To mark the occasion they began releasing a digital album, one song at a time. The Song of the Month is now four tracks thick and can be downloaded on a donation basis here. This means you can pay $0.00 for the album, if you are that much of a cheapskate.

In other news regarding the band, cellist Daniel Levin has now joined the Merlins full time after touring with them in France. I also spent most of 2010 thinking that How the Light Gets In, the band’s collaboration with Kid Dakota last year, was only available on import. Well, it’s closer than I thought.
