Cavity- Drowning (1996)

Today we have Cavity’s Drowning, an old and forgotten album, or so I thought.
Cavity is a sludge band out of Miami, split up for a decade now, they formed in 1992 emerging from Maimi’s punk scene “used hardcore as a springboard while incorporating heavier riffs and a thicker sound” (Last FM) resulting in Sludge.
Cavity released a bunch of singles, which ultimately ended up in this, the Drowning compilation released in 1996. A classic early south Florida sludge album, long out of print that almost no one remembers, right?
Wrong. Yes, few people remember this album, because look, can’t even find all the songs on YouTube. However, someone did take the time to make sure that all the links for this obscure album in .rar and .zip formats for free download, have been removed. All of them. Rapidshare, Mediafire, even depositfile… but YouTube is ok?
Part of why I started this blog was so that I would have basically a cloud storage of my favorite music, via any smart phone or computer (no, I’m not doing it to be cool. I’m already cool enough). The past couple months I have found myself listening to steaming music more and downloading virtually nothing…
It appears to me that technology is making this “downloading is stealing” idea obsolete because everything is available streaming now. To everyone’s phones.
So, regulation has caught up and shut the door on the illegal downloading at just the moment in time when that same music is available to everyone.
The world is changing around us as I form these words, we must adapt; the era of free downloading seems to be ending, so not all posts will have download links, however, all will have streaming links of one form or another. (After all the whole point of music is for it to be heard.)
I apologise, I liked it the way it was before too, I will try and find download links for at least half the posts anyway.
