Free MP3: Isaac Russell "Lighthouse"

Oct 25, 2010 7:00 AM by Staff

With a raspy-smooth voice, emerging songwriter Isaac Russell is one to watch this year. “Lighthouse,” has all the elements of a perfect pop song–we just wish it was a minute or two longer (I guess that’s why the repeat button was invented).

Free MP3: The Orbans "Like A Liar"

Oct 19, 2010 7:00 AM by Staff

In the alt-country vein of Ryan Adams, The Orbans bring their rural style to the city (and vice versa). Vocalist Peter Black admits he’s a liar in their standout track, “Like A Liar,” which only leads us to wonder if he’s telling the truth about that.

Free MP3: Pete Yorn, 'Precious Stone'

Oct 15, 2010 12:55 PM by Staff

With a classic rock image and sound, Pete Yorn hits us with his radio-friendly single, “Precious Stone.” And in support of the new self-titled LP, his recent media tour led him to some reputable venues, such as The Ellen Show and Late Night With Jimmy Fallon.

Free MP3: Minus The Bear, 'My Time'

Oct 13, 2010 7:00 AM by Staff

Besides the beards, there’s a common thread among Minus The Bear, Kings of Leon and Band of Horses. They all have that rugged-yet-clean style that attracts a mix of young and old fans (mostly dudes). This new breed of guitar-led bands are making indie rock more accessible and, well, less indie.

Free MP3: The Tallest Man On Earth, ‘Like The Wheel’

Oct 11, 2010 6:00 AM by Staff

He’s not really the tallest man, in terms of actual height, but he could be the biggest thing in folk music since Dylan. The Tallest Man On Earth is currently traveling lite by selling out notable venues such as The Fillmore with just an acoustic guitar and a microphone. “Like The Wheel” comes of his latest EP, Sometimes The Blues Is Just A Passing Bird.

Free MP3: Iron and Wine, ‘Boy With A Coin’

Oct 8, 2010 9:00 AM by Staff

FROM THE MP3 ARCHIVES: Delicately plucked chords cascade around Sam Beam’s gentle, charmed baritone, leaving pure, perfect songs in their wake. Iron and Wine‘s personal, sometimes haunting songwriting keeps urban cynicism at bay, unfolding instead with beauty, wonder, and bittersweet joy.

Free MP3: OK Go, ‘White Knuckles’

Oct 1, 2010 9:00 AM by Staff

It’s odd seeing OK Go anywhere else but on YouTube (the site that made them famous), but this way you can hear their music without their visual antics. The Prince-like single “White Knuckles” comes from their new album Of The Colour Of The Sky. Cue it up to your workout mix and create your own treadmill video.

Free MP3: Midlake, ‘Paper Gown’

Sep 29, 2010 9:00 AM by Staff

FROM THE MP3 ARCHIVES: Midlake is not afraid to be both beautiful and ineffable. Archaeologists of the sonic variety, this remarkable outfit has returned from a dig in the ’70s and recorded their findings. Gentle and dramatic piano moves gracefully throughout their music providing a dreamy foundation for striking melodies and lyrics.

Free MP3: Bobby Bare Jr. 'Sad Smile'

Sep 24, 2010 5:40 PM by Staff

If you sang on a Grammy nominated duet that reached number two in the country charts and was written by Shel Silverstein when you were only 6 years-old, the next 20 to 30 years of your life could be pretty anticlimactic. In fact, simply avoiding a life of disaster is an accomplishment in itself. (To my knowledge, Bobby Bare Jr. has never knocked over a 7-11, shaved his head and fought a car with an umbrella, or twitpic’d a topless cell phone picture of himself).

Free MP3: Maroon 5, 'Misery'

Sep 22, 2010 6:00 AM by Staff

In celebration of the release of Maroon 5‘s third studio album, you can download their funky new single “Misery” for free! Produced by hit-maker Rober John Lange (AC/DC, Def Leppard, The Cars), Hands All Over gives Maroonheads (is that what you call them?) what they want. Which is a polished concoction of dance and rock, somewhere between Jamiroquai and Phoenix.
