Paul Westerberg - 49:00

49 minutes of new Paul Westerberg songs. 49 cents. Cool. If you're a fan, well by all means go and get 'em now! If you're not familiar (or not a fan) well give it a try. I mean, you know...it's only 49 cents. From Billboard.com:
Westerberg played all the instruments on the decidedly lo-fi recordings, which often feature two songs playing at once for a few seconds and short snippets that abruptly cut off. "It's almost like you're scanning a radio dial," Hill says. "You're getting a glimpse inside of Paul's head here."
"49" concludes with a strange mash-up of partial covers such as the Partidge Family's "I Think I Love You," the Beatles' "Hello, Goodbye," Steppenwolf's "Born To Be Wild," Simon & Garfunkel's "I Am a Rock" and Elton John's "Rocket Man," and a rave-up apparently sung by Westerberg's pre-teen son Johnny.
