If you jumped on the Cold War Kids bandwagon this year and never got the chance to procure their rare Mulberry Street EP, you are in luck. The band has just made it available for free download at RCRD LBL.com. Since most people know about CWK through their 2006 release Robbers & Cowards, this EP is a look into what went on with the band before they blew up and took the blogosphere by storm. Mulberry Street was their first of three 6-song EPs and was recorded in a garage in one day -- and only cost the band $60 -- in between listening to Iggy Pop and Neil Young and moving the lawn, according to singer Nathan Willett. As for RCRD LBL, it's an amalgamation of online labels and blogs that launched in November and offers free music for users from both veteran and up-and-coming bands from labels including Warp, Dim Mak, Ghostly International, Modular and more. At last check in, we learned that CWK are currently recording their follow up, likely for a 2008 release.
