Free as a Bee: Knightingale, Cheap Horse, Animal Camera, Phenomenal Cat, Buried Feather, Glenn Robinson, ipreferguitars, No Museums, The Loblaws, Vista Blue, Deco Auto, undone

Almost exactly how we feel at this precise moment.

Well, it appears the only way we're getting another post done is to eschew verbiage and get right to free and legal downloadables we've found and loved. Like Antonio, we know we're personally "your bad entertainment" but trust the music won't be.


This Singapore band's debut LP was one of our favorites from 2016, We bought six songs off it but recently found it available for name-your-price download. In addition to the first song cued up above, we also bought #3, 5, 6, 7, & 9. Keen-eared visitors might remember we embedded their latest single in our Faves of the Faves Playmoss Playlist in a recent post. In case you missed it, here it is.

Cheap Horse

Many thanks to longtime friend/visitor johnnybgoode for the headsup on this Santa Cruz band. We also particularly liked #13. And speaking of johnnyb., we remember he kind of liked this next band, who've recently put out some good newstuff.

Animal Camera

We also liked-to-loved #2, 3, 5, & 8. When we got word about this Burien, WA band's recent LP, we looked back at our first Animal Camera post and found to our horror that all the songs had been removed at Bandcamp. But after contacting him, head Animal (or Camera?) Gianni Aiello kindly restored the songs in a comprehensive collection, posted below. We begin with our favorite and note that the others we particularly like are #5, 6, 12, & 13, but do please feel free to listen to them all. (Big of us, sure, but, hey, whatever.)

Phenomenal Cat

This and #12, 14, & 20 are our favorites from the Kentish band's rock opera, Pop Wasteland. Perhaps it's a bit naughty to pick out but four faves from a concept album, but the whole work is available in the widget above. In the widget below you will find "Ramshackle Heart," a favorite we previously posted, along with beaucoup more for your consideration. Just a thought, but perhaps Animal Camera might want to arrange a photoshoot of Phenomenal Cat. AWS, just a thought. Oh, and also too, maybe Cheap Horse. Or Buried Feather. This post is wearing us out.

Buried Feather

Highly diggable Melbourne psych! More here.

Glenn Robinson

Actually we are quite impressed indeed. You probably noticed this particular song features ace powerpoprocker Kurt Baker. We also especially like #5 on this hot lil LP. You can find previously posted free and legals by this Providence, RI rocker here. Suddenly we're writing short, punchy sentences. What gives with that?


Thanks to Powerpopaholic for the headsup on this Hamburg/Stockholm/Warsaw band.

No Museums

We were not previously tuned in to the Edmonton surfer scene but sure are now. We also particularly like #1 & 4. Thanks to our Bandcamp friend thorsten sideboard for the headsup.

The Loblaws & Vista Blue

We also really enjoyed #1, 2, 3, 4, & 5 by The Loblaws and #9, 10, 11, & 12 by Vista Blue, both bands courtesy of Radiant Radish.

Deco Auto

Gotta thank The Well WishersJeff Shelton for the headsup on this rocker outta Kansas City. Click here to see our previously posted freely/legally downloadable by DA.


Scope ye out this fine band of Macedonians.

We could keep going in this vein, but you get the drift. We hope to return soon with more free and legals. In the meantime, don't forget to check our Powerpopulist Currents Playmoss widgets up in the right-hand corner of this page for constant updates of songs we like that are not free but definitely legal and downloadable (for nominal fees).
