Musical Interlude: Daytrotter

Through some close, personal Facebook friendships with bands who totally appreciate me for who I am, I have learned of a website where some pretty great bands show up, play a few songs, and the website then makes them available to us, the general public for free. That's an awesome scam, without the scam part so much that I can figure.

That website is called Daytrotter. And, like I said--it is awesome. So far I've downloaded tracks from the Rural Alberta Advantage, Aimee Mann, Andrew Bird, Dale Watson, and Blitzen Trapper.

On the decks: Brother Ali, Catfish Haven, Centro-Matic, Damien Jurado, fucking Daniel Johnston, Eef Barzelay, The Felice Brothers, Ha Ha Tonka (maybe my favorite newish band), Heartless Bastards, and the Hold Steady. And I'm only through the letter "H".

You just have to sign up, and the downloading begins. And so ends my spiel, for which I was neither paid for or even asked for. It's just a great idea, people.
