Ryan Helsing: Free Album Download

By: Brendan

If you’re in the mood for some chill out, Trip-Hop music, check out Ryan Helsing’s Dreams of Color album. I especially like the track “Disappear.” The entire album is available as a “Name Your Price” (including $0) download, which you can access below…

Mikaela Davis: Free Album Download

Indie singer-songwriters don’t often play the harp, but Mikaela Davis does. The NY singer-songwriter and harpist is offering her entire self-titled album as a free, legal download on Noisetrade. Her music is accurately described as a mix of Sufjan Stevens and Regina Spektor. Some of the songs are a little too precious for my taste, but I really like “Ballad of a Winter’s Past.” You can access the mp3s by entering your email address below.

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.”

Charlotte Church: Three

By: Brendan

Earlier this year, we pondered whether Charlotte Church’s new music is awful or awesome. I have settled upon the latter. Listen to a track from the third in her projected series of five EPs below. Released on August 26th, Three is available for purchase at Amazon. Her previous release, Two, remains available as a free Noisetrade download. “Glitterbombed” and “Nerve” from that collection have been among my most-played songs this year. Church’s voice varies from vulnerable to ferocious on these tracks, backed by a wall of drum and guitar. It’s a magnificent sound, unlike anything else you’ll hear this year.
