Big Gigantic climbing iTunes charts despite free download
Whoa! If you check the electronic iTunes Top 10 chart right now, you'll notice that Big Gigantic's latest album has jumped to the second spot on the chart. While that in itself is noteworthy, what makes it more so is that the outfit made Nocturnal available for free download on its website earlier this week. Not that it's much of a surprise, really. Remember last year when they casually dropped a new song at ThisSongIsSick.Com and crashed the servers? It's nice to know people still pay for good music.
