The Gospel Whiskey Runners: Free Album Download!

The Gospel Whiskey Runners make exactly the kind of music their name implies – rough, very bluesy folk that’s both vintage and modern. Similar to The Felice Brothers and Avett Brothers. Their new album, Hold On, is available as a free, legal download on Noisetrade. You can access the mp3s by entering your email address below. I especially like the opening songs “I Am a Ghost” and “Muddy Waters.”

Kate Tucker & the Sons of Sweden: Free Album Download!

Kate Tucker & the Sons of Sweden’s entire, fantastic self-titled debut (click for review) is available as a free, legal download on Noisetrade for a limited time. You can access the mp3s by entering your email address in the widget below and watch the video for my favorite track from the album, “Everything Went Down.” Kate has gathered a new band under the moniker Sons of Sweden and they are currently recording a follow up album.

K.S. Rhoads: From Outside the Wilderness

K.S. Rhoads’ fantastic new album, From Outside the Wilderness, is available as a free, legal download on Noisetrade. My better half, Brendan, played it for me last night and I fell in love. It’s really nothing like Foxygen’s magnificent psychedelic We Are the 21st Century Ambassadors of Peace & Magic, yet From Outside the Wilderness hit me with the same kind of fresh, creative force. I especially love the whimsical instrumentation in the opening track, “The Wilderness.” You can access the mp3s by entering your email address below.
