Hi folks, back again for a quick update on my Free Culture music project, Severed Fifth. As before, I just want to share a bunch of links to interesting things that are going on.

Other things going on:
- Severed Fifth interview on libre.fm podcast – I did a long interview with Elleo about the band, Free culture, Severed Fifth Fair Pay and more.
- Companies that support Severed Fifth – a write-up about how Bytemark Hosting, Toontrack, and Microsoft have supported Severed Fifth.
- Severed Fifth Android App – Rob is busily working on a Severed Fifth Android App and he tweeted recently that he expects to have a release out tomorrow. I can’t wait to see his progress! He did post this screenshot recently, which looks awesome!
- New wallpapers! – Mario has been going wallpaper crazy and created a bunch of new awesome wallpapers, and new Severed Fifth Street Team wallpapers.
It was also cool to see Chris Kontos, who is currently playing with Attitude Adjustment but previously on Machine Head’s hugely successful first album Burn My Eyes, and has played with Testament, Konkhra, Attitude Adjustment, Exodus, Verbal Abuse, Custard Pie, Anti Trust, The Servants, Dog Faced Gods, Death Angel, Grinch and with James Murphy, wearing a Severed Fifth t-shirt at a recent show in San Francisco:
Finally, don’t forget that the new album is recorded from 11th – 15th Aug 2010 and the entire recording will be streamed live on our ustream.tv channel. Be sure to be there!
