After talking with staff over the past few weeks, we realized that the "free music friday" posts we were doing weren't really working and hadn't become what we thought the feature could be when we started it all those years ago. So, we're sunsetting it and will be trying out some new features throughout the week instead. Hmmm, how about: free music wednesday! Basically, the idea is that a staff member will find one song/album/whatever that's available for free and write a little something about it on the homepage. That thread will then be open to anyone else that would like to share free (legal!) music with other listeners. Your band, your friends' band, whatever. And, on that note: this week I had this pop-punk tune by Mr. Fahrenheit tossed my way called "Dead Air." You can grab it on Bandcamp as a free download.
Not bad -- dig the vocals the most and they're underused in that song. Man, that intro goes on a little too long tho.
I can see that. I think it's once the drums and vocals kick in during the verse that really gets me. This song is one from the album where the vocals take a backseat but I think it shines well throughout the album as a whole.
I had noticed that Free Music Friday wasn't posted last Friday. I feel like the "What's in our mailbox" and "Free Music Friday" could be combined somehow, and this highlight format would be better suited for that system.
