Friday five: five free and legal mp3s
Grab 'em while they're hot:
  • The folks at Trekky Records sent over Tall Trees.mp3, from the forthcoming Time Taunts Me EP by a guy who goes by Lost in the Trees (MysSpace site). Trekky Records writes: "After fronting The b-Sides and The Never for years, Ari Picker is finally ready to reveal his solo work to the masses, under the moniker Lost in the Trees. A compilation of songs written over the last 7 years, the Lost in the Trees repertoire represents some of Picker’s most haunting and personal songwriting to date, coupled with his most elaborate and engaging orchestral arrangements." Time Taunts Me will be released March 20.

  • Another one from Ghost Stories (MySpace) (featured here last weekend): You Wear It Like a Stained-Glass Window.mp3. I'm really digging these cuts. Music courtesy of Team Clermont.

  • Another pitched my way by Team Clermont: Thank God fhr the Evening News.mp3, by Fulton Lights (MySpace). Team Clermont says: "The self-titled debut from Fulton Lights, brainchild of Brooklyn NY’s Andrew Spencer Goldman (John Guilt, Maestro Echoplex), is a big-sounding but hazy-feeling slow-burner of a record very much the product of the city it calls home. New York’s manic and sublime energy —sometimes majestic, sometimes claustrophobic, often both—radiates throughout these forty-four minutes of music that took over three years to create. The album achieves an unusual feat: Fulton Lights subtly rumbles, roars, screeches and buzzes while retaining melody and structure and leaving room for Goldman’s expressive voice and elemental piano/organ/guitar parts."

  • Via Earvolution: Deerhoof's new weird-rockin' single, +81.mp3. Don't let the "Magnificent Seven" trumpets fool you.

  • And now for something completely odd: Sisters O Sisters.mp3, by Yoko Ono (yes, the Yoko Ono) and Le Tigre, via Fluxblog, who calls this "an inspired combination -- few living people represent the aesthetic of 60s progressive activism as completely as Ono, and Le Tigre made a career out of trying to revive it in a new context. Like a lot of their respective music, it contains a lot of protest language that may seem anachronistic, corny, and cheap, but they know that, and at least part of the point is to make the listener question why they feel that way about this sort of thing even if they essentially agree with the politics."
