We recently bemoaned our not keeping up-to-date on posting fab music we're finding. So let's continue to play catchup on recent, recentish, and not-particularly-recent-at-all finds available for free & legal download, shall we? Ta.
From: Brisbane - Facebook
From: Austin - Facebook - This capital band has made pretty much its whole discography available for name-your-price download at Bandcamp. Oversight? We don't know, but act quickly. On this particular LP, name o' Colour Trip, we're also particularly fond of #1 & 5.
From: Aarhus - Facebook - Click here for another.
From: London (UK) - Facebook - We also particularly like #9.
From: Seattle? (Quite likely, duh.)
From: Nashville - More here, here, & here.
From: Manchester - Facebook - We posted some other fine f&ls by The Candy Strypers here.
And here's a long-cherished number found at Epitonic. Click to download. Three other DJ numbers are available there, including the more-than-ready "Almost Ready."
