Free Music Download: Phil the Thrill’s “Hazard Lights” off (s)Ample Time 2

Phil the Thrill ample time cover2

Phil the Thrill is back with some new music! He previously brought us “The Dopeness,” which is still available to download for free here, that is off the (s)Ample Time EP. Then just last month he released the EVOL EP (click to download for free) after taking a short break from recording, which Phil breaks it down for fans below:

“first and foremost I want to thank and show my appreciation for every blog, fan, or just music lover that has shown love to my music or even took the time out to give me a listen, that goes a long way. It’s been a while since I put out any new music and that is due to numerous reasons. I feel like as an upcoming artist sometimes breaks are needed in order to fully “live life” and have inspiration from going through things to actually write about. With that said I took this time to really perfect my craft and look deeper into finding my sound and innovating who I, Phil the Thrill am as an artist. Through this time I am able to bring to you a collection of some of my works with the “EVOL” project with thetiming of Valentines Day..(you see what I did there) And to follow up “EVOL” will be (s)AMPLE TIME 2 in the coming weeks. I look forward to sharing my many stories with you through my music in this year from flythoughts.com and revo media.” – Phil The Thrill

Today he gives us “Hazard Lights” off his upcoming EP release (s)Ample Time 2.  If it’s not obvious by the name, each track on the (s)Ample Time 2 EP is a sample.  “Hazard Lights” take a sample from Kanye West’s “Flashing Lights.”  Click the link to download or listen to the stream below:

Free Music Download: Cairo Knife Fight’s “The Origin Of Slaves”

Cairo Knife Fight is Nick Gaffaney on Drums/Vocals/Bass/Loops and Aaron Tokona – on Guitars/Vocals.  This electro power rock duo hail from Christchurch, New Zealand and as they note on their Facebook Page, “This is a band page. That means we are a band. Contrary to popular opinion; we are not a cult.”

The duo are about to make their huge US debut in 2012 at the SXSW music festival in Austin.  To prep the US for their arrival they released “The Origin Of Slaves,” off their EP II,  as a free music download.  At first listen I completely see how these guys opened for Foo Fighters.  They have a huge sound for being a power rock duo.

You can check the song out via YouTube (below) or just take my word for it and download the track!

FREE DOWNLOAD: Phil The Thrill – The Dopeness

Phil The Thrill explains the lead track from upcoming EP, (s)AMPLE TIME:
“The dopeness is a way of thinking. It isn’t anything that can be explained specifically because it fits according to the individual. Dopeness is not anything that can be categorized. It is simply what’s seen as “cool” to that person in ways that they apply it to their lifestyle. Basically stating that, “Dopeness” is of the mind.” – Phil The Thrill

Free Download of I’ll Be Waiting by Michael Franti

To celebrate the release of his new single, “I’ll Be Waiting,” Michael Franti is offering fans the opportunity to download it for FREE. Head toMichaelFranti.com or Facebook.com/MichaelFranti to download. You can also check out the powerful lyrics of “I’ll Be Waiting”  (Radio Edit Mix) in a brand new lyric video.

“I’ll Be Waiting” has special meaning to Franti who describes it as “an epic and vast song about intensely personal experiences.” Below are Franti’s personal thoughts on the song and what it means to him.

“At its core it is a love song, but not in the classic sense of the phrase.

It is a song of searching, failure, growth and healing.

It is a love song between a friend who is addicted to heroin and his lover who is desperately waiting for him to clean up.

It is a love song for a single mother who has just seen her teenage daughter run away to the city, only to come home pregnant and alone.

It is a love song  for an over-demanding father who’s son has gone off to war only to come home broken with scars inside and out.

It is a love song for a bus driver who spends his whole day helping others only to come home to his wife who is battling cancer.

It is a love song for a child who is bullied at school and one day snaps and is now calling his mother from juvenile detention.

It is a song about leaving home and searching for ourselves outside of our “selves” in the material world.

Buying the right car to make us look important, the right jeans to make us slimmer, the right friends to make us more special, the right drugs to make us more confident, the right lover to fix that part of us that is empty.

Inevitably all these things fail and as we fall on our faces we come to discover those that we rebelled against the most, were the people who had faith in us even when we were at our worst…”Whenever you call me, whenever you need me, wherever you wander, until you see me, I’ll be Waiting, waiting for you…”   With open arms to catch us, hold us, heal us… even when we think we are not worthy of it.”

Download Ben + Vesper’s “Knee Hi-Wall”, New Track Off Of HONORS, Out Jan. 25 on Sounds Familyre!

Ben and Vesper’s “Knee Hi-Wall”

Shortly after the announcement of Ben + Vesper’s sophomore album, and first full-length in four years,HONORS, the husband and wife duo gave listeners a hint of what was to come by sharing the track “My Father’s Eyes”. Now, with just three weeks to go before the album’s January 25th release on Sounds Familyre, the pair is unleashing another track, “Knee-Hi Wall”, which shows a slightly different, peppier side of their collaboration. Ben’s earthy baritone and Vesper’s sweet, yet confident alto warmly combine on the forefront, backed by their ever-unusual and strangely danceable freak-pop arrangements. Ben explains it best below…

“My favorite thing in the world is to hear my songs in the hands of people I can trust.  They do the necessary violence to my writing until something new emerges. It’s like an awkward teenager threshold right before the voice change, or a dog on a walk with a new owner. ‘Knee-Hi Wall’ was a stretch for me to record because it is an ancient song and I’m generally skittish about approaching old material.  I never expected to make a disco-phonic/bloodhound-gang number, but that’s what happens when you let go of your own agenda in the studio surrounded by the likes of John Mosloskie, Steve Oyola, Josh Stamper and Sufjan Stevens. It’s wonderfully freeing.” – Ben Stamper

Alpha Pup Recording artist KRADDY announces US Tour for LABYRINTH EP

KRADDY ANNOUNCES 2011LABYRINTH TOUR
30-date US TOUR celebrates the release of theLabyrinth EP and Upcoming Remix Album

January 11, 2011 (Los Angeles, LA) - Kraddy announced his 2011 Winter tour in promotion of his latest EP release, Labyrinth. Fresh off recent appearances with Pretty Lights and a sold-out CD release party that packed L.A.’s infamous Low End Theory nightclub to fire brigade levels, listen for the Kraddy “Led Zeppelin 3000” sound at clubs and festivals through North America in 2011.

Kraddy’s Labyrinth Tour launches on January 13th with a repeat L.A. performance hosted by Do Labs at King King and includes dates during the SIA Snow Show in Colorado as well as guest appearances with Big Gigantic in select cities in the Northeast. Tour features custom-designed lighting system with support by electronic music duo Archnemesis and Love & Light for select dates.
The Labyrinth EP, released in collaboration between Alpha Pup Records and Minotaur Recordings and available through all major retailers, is a crowd moving affair loaded with powerful rhythms, epic symphonics, and savage gauntlets of body-throttling bass… a style Kraddy likes to call, “Led Zeppelin 3000.”
The 5-track original collection includes elements of hip hop, dubstep, dancehall, and rock that are woven together to create a brutally pounding EP – a musical experience that is sliced through with soul and banged from the brain of one of the West Coast’s most prominent future sound pioneers.
The upcoming Labyrinth remix album includes remixes by Heavyweight Dub Champions, DLXRobot Koch, and Ben Samples and will be available February 2011 in both vinyl and digital formats through Groove Distribution. Special bonus packages will include custom Kraddy skate decks as well as the music video for the single “No Comply,” shot at Thrasher’s skate park arena.

DOWNLOAD AN MP3 OF “American Regular” NOW.

http://goto.thesyn.com/mp3s/mcgowan/americanregular.zip

Mcgowan Southworth is an award-winning songwriter, artist and musician based in Brooklyn, NY. His latest album American Regular (released on November 10th) is a mix of varied rock influences – touching on elements of power-pop masters like Big Star, Brendan Benson, and Fountains Of Wayne blended with the early rock of Elvis Costello and Neil Young.

Mcgowan’s musical prowess has been utilized by many musicians over the years. When he’s not making solo albums, he’s in the studio twisting knobs with top producers (who’ve worked with the likes of John Legend and Lenny Kravitz), travelling down-under and writing songs for BMG Australian acts like Operator Please, Renee Cassar, The Cassette Kids, Old Man River, and Matt Corby. Mcgowan’s talent even caught the ear of Aussie musician. Ben Lee brought in Mcgowan as the co-writer for his album Awake Is The New Sleep, netting him songwriting awards at the Australian Grammys.

NIN logoDid you download your free and 100% legal copy of Nine Inch Nails’s The Slip yet? I just downloaded mine a few minutes ago. I don’t know why it took me so long to just go download it from the NIN site.

The greatest feature of downloading the album was actually before downloading it. A smart move on Trent’s half was offering multiple format options. Fans have the ability to choose from High Quality MP3, FLAC losseless, FLAC High Definition 24/96 (24bit/96kHZ audio), M4A Apple Lossless, and High Definition WAVE 24/96. Now that’s what I call shopping for music!

There are always the people who are against artists giving their music away for free. I think some artists need to realize music was devalued by the free-for-all Napster. It’s very hard to take something that was on the market for free, and still is, to value again. The industry won’t recover from that and everybody has to move on. When I say move on I mean lets come up with some solutions that benefit everybody. I know my wheels are always turning and already have ideas in the making.

I’ll review The Slip in a couple days…keep your eye out!

UPDATE: It’s funny I mentioned the formats that are available to download for the NIN album, here’s an article about the push for higher quality formats online.
