Free MP3 Download: Bon Iver, "Blood Bank"

Woodsy indie singer-songwriter Justin Vernon is releasing the self-titled album under his Bon Iver moniker, following up 2008-s massively popular For Emma, Forever Ago.

Released a couple years back, “Blood Bank” is about the warmth that gets you through it. Both expansive and intimate, Bon Iver explores the darker and lighter natures of the seasons and what they signify, and offer a glimpse into the natural energy and refined craftsmanship that characterize Justin Vernon’s music.

Free MP3 Download: Amos Lee, "Ease Back"

Many performers balk at the “singer-songwriter” label when asked to describe their music. Not Amos Lee. The Philly-born musician embodies the best of each of those words, being an accomplished songwriter and a skilled singer whose voice is at once ethereal and earthbound.

Amos will return to Chicago for gig along the lake this summer with the Dave Matthews Band Caravan.

In support of their upcoming album Collider, the Sam Roberts Band havw offered up the first single “The Last Crusade” for free download. Joined by Califone percussionist Ben Massarella and Antibalas woodwind wizard Stuart Bogie, Collider reinterprets, without tampering, the spirit of the band’s classic pop song craft and infectious melodies that countless critics fell in love with. Immediately apparent on the album’s colossal opening track “The Last Crusade,” which begins as a simmering soul shuffle before gradually intensifying into a brass-blasted Afro-funk blowout.

Free MP3 Download: Vandervelde – "More Than You Can Feel"

Apr 27, 2011 5:01 PM by Staff

This country rocker finds Chicago-based David Vandervelde, going by just his surname, channeling Zuma-era Neil Young, mixed with the weary cocaine fanaticism of Marc Bolan. The tremolo-drenched guitars are retro but massive, a nice foil to Vandervelde’s warbling tenor vocals, communicating that age-old pain of people everywhere: “I need you/All I need is you/More than you know.” A fairly straightforward sentiment that Vandervelde makes work with nothing more than sincerity and a few chords. And a lot of cowbell.

Free MP3 Download: Okkervil River – "Wake And Be Fine"

Album Artwork

The first single from Okkervil River‘s album I Am Very Far is just about as heavy as the band has ever sounded in their prolific career. Piano keys sound like they are being punched, guitars like they are being beaten rather than strummed, and William Sheff’s voice functions as much as part of the rhythmic cacophony as anything else, cracking and accenting the beats like a percussion instrument. It’s the darkest Okkervil River has sounded too, despite the title’s misleading optimism, and that’s a refreshing change of pace from their more gentle, subdued tunes. The music before seemed to just barely contain itself within tension, but now, it is bursting at the seams with energy.
