Sarah Fimm has always been passionate about her music and sincere about getting it into the hands of as many people as she can. She is constantly making her music available to stream online, and isn’t above giving away albums – as she did a few years ago with White Birds. Even though she is known for trying to share her music whenever it’s possible, her latest endeavor still comes as a surprise for its forward-thinking and the sheer depth of the project. Karma Phala is thirty-one tracks of new and unreleased music that spans her entire recording career, including three tracks from her upcoming fifth album, Near Infinite Possibility. It covers everything from ambient electronics to soulful acoustic rock while maintaining a consistently high quality throughout. In addition to that large quantity of music, Karma Phala also includes a high-quality ‘making of Near Infinite Possibility’ video, a ton of pictures, a personal greeting from Sarah herself and more. As if that isn’t enough, she has been giving the whole thing away for free on 1-gig thumb drives (she is even covering the shipping). Included on this thumb drive is Sarah Fimm’s reason for giving this whole collection away; a mission statement:

My goal is to encourage you to share this music across the world. The livelihood of independent art relies on your consciousness to keep it alive. The only thing I ask is that you continue to use the Karma Phala drive to share music and pass it along to trusted allies, protectors and lovers of music and art. Try to remind others to support independent artists by buying their stuff in the process! (CDbaby.com and Etsy.com are two great places to do this if you don’t quite know where to start) Let’s create a climate where music can be shared, continuously created and also supported by us as a society. You are now a part of the family of Karma Phala for all eternity. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your presence on the Earth.

With Love,

Sarah

To that end, she has given us permission to pass this album on to you through SputnikMusic as a free download. Check it out and make sure to support her by purchasing her previous albums if you like what you hear.

Anyone into mellow trip hop and stuff like Sarah McLachlan should check this out. If you're hoping to get the actual gig-drive go to Sarah Fimm's Facebook page for details (while supplies last, of course).

Sounds cool. I had trouble getting into her music because I couldn't really find many downloads, so I'll definitely download this.

I know right? The staff blog has got no love lately.

Well, I just checked the downloads count and it is getting a lot of attention. That means people are reading this (or at least clicking the links), they're just not commenting on here to say that they are.

Man, great stuff. I will definitely share this with people I know.

I'll just download it, but I'll fan her on facebook and leave a message. She's great and I just don't want her to waste her hard-earned money on sending me something I probably won't even pass around.

That's cool. I think mainly she just wants to share her music (and probably get people excited for her upcoming album).
