The electronic avant folk outfit reveals upcoming album tracks and art on BitTorrent Bundle.
“Make art that is unclassifiable.” Hundred Waters explains their mission to us. And it rings true. In a world where creativity is planned and tagged; where discovery is programmed out, where franchises rule: the avant folk outfit is a beautiful outlier.
Formed in 2011, Hundred Waters defies genres and expectations. Classical and rock. In sharp focus and gauzy diffusion. An indie band, on an electronic label (Skrillex’s OWSLA). “A watercolor wash of possibilities, a suspension of time, an embrace of textural experiment and open-ended expectations,” in the words of the Times. Four kids from Florida whose songs stay with us, long after they’ve stopped playing.
Hundred Waters’ upcoming record The Moon Rang Like a Bell, out May 27, is among this year’s most anticipated releases. Your first listen is here, on BitTorrent Bundle: 6 new tracks, the album booklet, plus photos and stories from the making of The Moon Rang Like A Bell.
The Moon Rang Like A Bell Bundle is a follow up to the band’s FORM: ARCOSANTI BitTorrent release on May 2nd; downloaded by 542 thousand listeners around the world. Unlock ARCOSANTI. The album release party is this weekend.

About BitTorrent Bundle
BitTorrent Bundle is an Alpha project, made with and for the web’s creative community. Our mission is to help artists connect directly with fans, inside the content they share.
Each BitTorrent Bundle allows artists to distribute content directly to the Internet. And each Bundle comes with a key. Fans can unlock artist content with an email address. The idea is to make each song a storefront, and each file more valuable, each time it’s shared. Got ideas for the next BitTorrent Bundle? Hit us up.
