REM remix

John Moe Feb 9, 2011

The band REM has a new album coming out in March (many among us hope it’s great so we can stop listening to Murmur over and over again). To promote it, they’ve released individual tracks for the song It Happened Today and they’re encouraging fans to do their own remixes. The tracks are available under Creative Commons license and import easily to Apple’s Garage Band program, because let’s face it, if you’re the type of person to remix Creative Commons REM tracks, you own a Mac. The remixes are posted publicly on the website Soundcloud.
