Hadouken! - "Liquid Lives"

Such great energy from these guys. And yes, that's the same 'Hadouken' from the Street Fighter games... they knew what they were talking about. This fits in a nu-rave/electro-punk genre, and no matter what you call them, they will deny it. They have several self-released EP's out, including a newly released album entitled Mixtape.

With that, the album is apparently being released as a USB flash drive, or as a direct download. I don't know too much about it, and will post more about it with links if possible when I find out more, but it sounds a lot like something Trent Reznor or Radiohead would do, does it not?

EDIT: Mmk, so here's the lowdown. The new album is a 30 minute long continuous mp3 that's free for download. Just go here and enter in any bogus email address and then download your file. I'm playing it now so you dont have to worry about any virus's or anything. This is the second 'mixtape' that they have released, the first one being entitled Not Here to Please You and was released solely on USB flash drive. It can be purchased at their official website. But for now, enjoy the splendor of indie-electro-punk digital distribution.

EDIT Part Deux: I noticed an increase in traffic to this page, and thought I'd post a collection of remixes for Liquid Lives. None are quite as solid as the original mix IMO, but all have their moments. Hope this quitsyerbitchen.
