It’s been a great week for Free MP3s here at MP3.com. In the rock neighborhood, we dropped songs on you by Kristin Hersh and Mark Stewart; over in country-ville we gave up songs by two pairs of Brothers (Nelson and Matthews) and our R&B tracks of the week included a pair of old school heroes. So who are our staff faves for the week?
We know a theme when we see one, a pair of “bird” bands, flocking together for your downloading pleasure (though there’s little more than their names to put them in the same category).
Armed with crayons and acting like heroes, today’s Prime Cuts playlist asks the musical question: “What’s left of you when you work hard and die in the office?”
Like a Christmas stocking full of things that don’t actually go together — chap stick, hedge clippers and a half-dozen mini vodkas from a hotel honor bar — today’s Prime Cuts Playlist consists of three cuts just tossed into a sack at random. But it just so happened we like them all: a bedroom studio maven from the UK, an Irelander who plays 10 instruments and an encore from band we dig in spite of our confusion.
Holiday songs are rooted in tradition, many dating back hundreds of years. However, like any set of classic genre, it’s always interesting to hear new interpretations. Click through to hear some carols that have been updated for the 21st century by a team of artists on the ArtisTech Media label.
