music from other sources

Things have obviously gotten a wee bit quiet over the festive period. Normal service will resume soon (i.e. - the one-man group blog of the past couple of months...!) so until then here are a few places to get you free music fix (other than the plentiful links in the sidebar which you should be checking out anyway).

A friend of mine recently sent me a link to the great Daytrotter site. This features writing, illustrations as well as exclusive sessions from bands, recorded live in their very own studio. They're not very keen on people deep-linking to files (who is?) or re-hosting the files themselves but you should be visiting the site yourself, really.

Here are links to a few of my favourite sessions and they're all belters:

Langhorne Slim...

Bonnie Prince Billy...

Hockey Night...

and Nina Nastasia.

Very nice I'm sure you'll all agree.

If you want something a bit more arsequaking, I was chuffed to find that the mighty Butthole Surfers have made all of their classic Double Live semi-official bootleg available to download here.

We borrowed this off of a mate years ago and it's particularly good to hear The One I Love and Psychedelic Jam again after all these years.

Happy huntin'!
