Michelle Shocked’s Silent Album. And I Do Mean SILENT.

In a sarcastic shot against the music industry, Michelle Shocked released Inaudible Women, a totally silent record–i.e. there’s no audio–with 11 tracks named after industry people she doesn’t seem to like very much.

Like who?   SiriusXM executive VP/general counsel Patrick Donnelly.  Clear Channel executive VP/general counsel Robert Walls. Billboard journalist Chris William.  

And yes, it’ll cost to you “hear” this record.  It’s available now for $9.99 USD at CDBaby.  More on the story at Billboard.
