The Danish ambient/droning electronic band Croatian Amor (basically Loke Rahbek of Lust for Youth, Var, Damien Dubrovnik et. al) is releasing a new album titled The Wild Palms, but you can't buy it with money. In what (I think?) has got to be a first, you can only score the tape-only album, available only from June 22 until July 22, by sending the band a fully frontal nude photo. Here's how the band sent out an email blast:

"The Wild Palms" is only obtainable through trade for a private, fully frontal nude self-portrait. Send a nude to Thewildpalms1989 @ together with your address and you will receive the album in the mail. To verify your-self portrait, we ask you to include the text "The Wild Palms" either written on your body or in some way present in your photo.

The Project promises full discretion; only Croatian Amor will see your photo. In return we ask that you keep the recording private as well, the music is for you and is not meant to be shared with anyone, just as your photo will not be shared.

Not sure about how reassuring that last bit is, but if you're willing to do what it takes to hear new Croatian Amor, start snapping and try not to think about where that selfie ends up. The band has an established prurient nature and have featured erotica on album artwork in the past. Croatian Amor were supposed to play Baby's All Right for Northside Fest with Lust For Youth but got taken off the bill at the last moment.

Speaking of accepting nude pics, a blog called My Favorite Rock Group Kiss, where supposedly members of Kiss review indie rock, wants to see you naked, too, at least according to their righthand nav bar. Their most recent review is of Brick Mower, who just premiered a video.

Croatian Armor did not play the Lust for Youth show at Baby's All Right...their name got taken off days prior to the show.

I've never been more inclined to steal an independent artist's album before.

This reminds me of that Hannibal Burress Joke

"This girl says 'I'll show you my tits if you tell me one joke.'
I'm like 'Bitch, my jokes are worth more than your tits!'"

Only in this case any ones tits are worth more than danish ambient/noise-core
