While the word was rocked--well, not really--by the first (official) appearance of Chinese Democracy this morning, there are more exciting things available online than Axl and Buckethead.

The network that brought you Harvey Birdman, Attorney at Law and a talking wad of uncooked meat, is offering a free download of African Swim. The free album features some of the best South African hiphop artists and is in conjunction with shoot-'em-up video game Far Cry 2 (which takes place in South Africa), who sponsored the download.

The compilation a welcome change of pace, and a chance to unearth some music that might otherwise sail under your radar. Plus, it's an excuse to not listen to Chinese Democracy, which is never a bad thing.
