Saturday sounds: free and legal mp3s For your Saturday listening pleasure, some free music:
Courtesy of the fine folks at Team Clermont, here are two tunes from Barton Carroll: Barton Carroll - Dark End of the Street.mp3 and Barton Carroll - Scorched Earth.mp3. Both come from Carroll's album Love and War, which Team Clermont describes as "a stirring, austere collection of whiskey-soaked Appalachia that also gives a hat tip to the British folk scene of the early 70s (Richard Thompson in particular), Townes Van Zandt, and more recent vulnerable troubadours and revivalists like Gillian Welch and Richard Buckner."
The Antiques - Pigless.mp3 and The Antiques - Down to No. County.mp3. Both tracks are from The Antiques' debut, Nicknames and Natives, due in November from Banter Records. From Team Clermont: "The Antiques formed out of the ashes of the Santa Barbara, CA band Budge, who developed a cult following around Santa Barbara in the late ‘90s." They're and indie band "often compared to some mutant hybrid of the White Stripes and the Band." They "sponge up influences as disparate (but consistent in quality) as The Kinks, The Basement Tapes, The Pixies, Wilco, and the White Stripes. Their sound is reminiscent of The Kinks and Bob Dylan in the ‘60s and ‘70s, combined with The Pixies and Wilco in the ‘90s and ‘00s, which culminates into an indie-folk-rock sound that brings back memories for some and forms new memories for others."
