Things Macho Likes: Radio Over Moscow

Radio Over Moscow is New Zealand native Dan Duran. He describes his music as a "low-budget mix of Depeche Mode, Nirvana, New Order, Killers, Smashing Pumpkins, Beatles, Weezer, Human League, Manic Street Preachers, Primal Scream and Blur," though I would also add that his vocals make one recall The Faint.

Duran handles everything in house. He writes, records, produces, mixes, and distributes his own music. He offers his works as free ipod friendly downloads (donations kindly accepted), or as more audiophile friendly downloads for $5. I'd be curious to see the ratio of free downloads to paid downloads. "Pay what you want" models are one thing when you're the likes of Radiohead or Trent Reznor, but can a man creating music at his home studio have success with it?

Regardless of which version you choose, you should head to his website immediately to grab his albums "Battletech" and "Hide the Decline". He will also have a new EP available soon.
