This one slipped by me somehow. So let me flag it, in case it slipped by you too. Late last year, The Foo Fighters released online a free EP called Saint Cecilia, partly as a way to thank their fans for their steadfast support, and partly to help raise money for the victims of the horrific attacks in Paris. Recorded over the course of 11 days at the Hotel Saint Cecilia in Austin, Texas–a hotel named after the patron saint of musicians–the EP just became available in vinyl. Spin magazine calls Saint Cecilia the “Foo Fighters’ best record in years.” You can download it in MP3, Flac, WAV, and iTunes formats here.
