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…
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.
The Lighthearted are a piano pop duo currently studying at Berklee College of Music. Their five song Sugarcoated Poison EP is available as a name your price (including free) download at Bandcamp and they are currently working on their debut full-length. I especially like the slightly jazzy, buoyant title track.
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.”
