The first single from Renminbi's new EP "Surface" is available now in streaming format and also as a free download.
Please visit http://renminbi.cashmusic.org to hear "Portland" now. Just hit the "Play" button at the bottom-right to stream the track. If you want to download it (as a high-quality MP3, a FLAC, or an Apple lossless file) you'll need to enter & verify your email address. This isn't for any sneaky, evil reason -- it's just so we can send you a link to a download of the full album when it's out on July 7!
Some vital stats you need to know about "Surface":
1) It's out as a digital-only release on July 7. We are releasing it pay-what-you-wish style, which means you can also pay nothing. It will be available in several formats, all uber-high-quality for the audiophile in you.
2) It's out as a 12 inch 45 RPM vinyl in late August. Pre-orders for the vinyl will begin on digital-release day, July 7. Those who pre-order will receive lots of bonus materials when the vinyl is out, such as live tracks, demos, and other exclusives.
3) The EP Release Party is July 2 at Piano's. The cover is $8 and *includes* a free, limited-edition copy of the EP on CD on a first-come, first-served basis. The CD version of the EP will not be available anywhere else at any other time. This is a one-shot-only deal. We kick things off at 8pm, so don't be late!
4) We are releasing the EP under a Creative Commons license, which means you are free to copy it, share it, and remix it. However, we ask that you always direct people to http://renminbi.cashmusic.org so they can download the songs themselves and also gain access to other materials, such as photos, lyrics, and cover art.
