Today’s post contains much music for your listening pleasure. In the first place I thought, I write some short posts about all this stuff I stumbled upon today, but I think it is better do one big post that got it all.
[tags: acoustic, folk, sampler, free, 2010]
Woodpecker Wooliams – Threads (from Openings)
Grant Peeples – My People Come From The Dirt (from Openings)
Erin K Hill – Long Sleep (from Openings)
Ewan McLennan – As I Roved Out (from Openings)
Let’s start with a great free sampler featuring mostly acoustic music. The good people from Fatea Showcase Sessions provided it and the whole thing (called Openings) will be downloadable for three months from now on. This sampler is a great possibilitie to find some new bands which are not widely known yet or even still unsigned. Most of the songs are really good, ranging from an a cappella track over folk pop to americana, even though two or three of them are really not my taste. Make sure you don’t miss those 80 minutes and head directly to the download page or click here for instant download.
Sun Hotel – Team Spirit EP
free EP (download) self-released 2010
[tags: indie rock, folk?, EP, 2010]
Honey (from Team Spirit EP)
Speaking of free stuff, I found a mail in my inbox today concerning Sun Hotel’s new and free Team Spirit EP. They play indie rock so to say, with slighty folk influences. I don’t know if I like this music or not. But you can certainly feel the fun they had recording it for it is powerful and honest. Deceide for yourself and download the EP for free from Sun Hotel’s bandcamp page.
Saharan Gazelle Boy – Airplanes Can’t
The Record Machine 2010
[tags: bedroom pop, dream pop, 2010, only $2!!!]
Aiming A Wave (from Airplanes Can’t)
Something I Wanna Know About You (from Airplanes Can’t)
What’s next…I think I will tell you, that you should take your chance to download Saharan Gazelle Boy’s album Airplanes Can’t for just two dollars from The Record Machine…remember?…the good guys who gave away The Parade Shedule’s fantastic folk album for two dollars few weeks ago. But be warned, it’s no folk what Saharan Gazelle Boy plays, it’s bedroom pop with some dream pop flavor to it…sometimes calm, sometimes the opposite. In the end a really nice album one should own – at least for this killer price. ONLY $2, AHHHHH! BUY IT HERE!
Chatham County Line – IV
Yep Roc 2008
[tags: (alt) country, bluegrass, folk, 2008]
The Carolina (from IV)
Sweet Eviction (from IV)
And last thing for today: I found a band I never heard of before and because they are so amazing, I must mention them here. The band is called Chatham County Line and for me they are the better Mumford & Sons (and I really like Mumford & Sons). Country and bluegrass sound at its best combined with great folk attitude, that’s what I call their last album IV from 2008. In comparison to Mumford & Sons these guys know, where the break is and they are willing to hit it sometimes – this makes an really good album from start to finish. If you like the music, you can be happy from now on, because the band will release a new record at the end of spring. You will read about here. Until then, check out there other albums and buy them from here.
