Tatam Reeves: Free EP Download

Canadian singer-songwriter Tatam Reeves plays quiet, unassuming but nontheless substantial folk-pop. You can download his entire Home EP at Soundcloud. I especially like the songs “The Note” and “Passenger.” The latter is the best example of what Tatam calls his “boom bap folk music.”

Introducing Banditos

Banditos are an independent, brilliant, bluesy, rowdy, genre-hopping band from Birmingham, Alabama. Their cited influences include everyone from Aretha Franklin to Hank Williams, Sr. to Squirrel Nut Zippers, but frontwoman Mary Beth Richardson’s howl and the band’s rough, rustic rock instrumentation could just as easily be compared to Janis Joplin, Heartless Bastards and/or Alabama Shakes. You can download their six-song, self-titled EP (it’s name your own price, so just enter $0 to download for free) and watch the video for the standout track “No Good” below. If you have good taste in music, you will love this band.
