Parachute debuts at #1, inspires fans

As a result of their their primo placement, the free teaser track, and their two TV spots, Parachute's new album Losing Sleep debuted at #1 on the iTunes Music Store's sales charts yesterday, ahead of much-hyped new discs from Cam'ron, Steve Earle, and, well, everyone else. While that's not quite as significant as, say, Soundscan figures or the Billboard charts, Apple's download service surpassed Wal-Mart in sales back in February 2008 to become the largest music retailer in the country.

In addition, the corny-webcam-YouTube-covers-by-Asian-kids-with-acoustic-guitars index seems to indicate that these guys are going to be huge.

I just pressed play on all of these at simultaneously a la Zaireeka, which creates a pretty insane Stockhausen/Mraz/Cheez-Whiz bomb. Ever onward into the absurd!
