The Civil Wars are made up of the duo of Joy Williams and John Paul White and they have garnered a lot of attention for their unique vocal blends. The Daytrotter recording session includes music from their debut album "Barton Hollow" as well as a really good take on the song "Disarm" by The Smashing Pumpkins. John and Joy do a fantastic job performing this song. I also really enjoy the piano on their song "C'est La Mort".
For the new listeners out there, you can expect that The Civil Wars will sing to your hopeless romantic side. They do a wonderful job of vocally interacting with each other throughout each song that gives you the sense of the push and pull of a personal relationship. Thanks goes out to both The Civil Wars and the efforts of Daytrotter to bring quality free music to the fans. You can download The Civil Wars session for free by using the Daytrotter link below.
Update: A free DIGITAL BOOKLET for "Barton Hollow" can be downloaded from the Civil Wars band site. The digital booklet includes lyrics for all of the tracks and band photos as well.

Well David Ramirez has done it again by finding another way to freely release music to the fans. This time he has been featured as a part of a live music video project from SerialBox Presents. This project is all about recording live music cuts from some seriously good artists in an alternative form (not the CD version). This means live raw music professionally video taped and recorded for music fans. I'm going to have to feature their work with some other artists on here because they have worked with some of my favorite artists. You can get a head start on me by checking out the SerialBox Presents website.
"From the corner of the room, I see David walk up on stage carrying his guitar. He plugged in, put his beer down by the mic stand, and started playing over the chatter and clinking beer bottles. And that is when something truly special happened. By the end of the first verse, half of the room was silent. By the end of the first chorus, the entire room. By the end of the first song, the bartenders stopped serving drinks because the entire bar was on their feet and had moved in towards the stage. Every head was turned, every conversation halted, every eye on him."
The best part of this project for the fans is that the recorded music is available for free download. Like I said, I will have to feature more music from the SerialBox Presents sessions because they produce fantastic work and they record some really incredible music talents. You can download four free tracks from David Ramirez that was recorded during this session on his website, or by using the widget below. Also below you will find a link to the David Ramirez page on the SerialBox site where they post interview questions and give the credits for the video. Fantastic work.

There are times when I get the urge to hear something new, but then I have no idea what kind of music I am in the mood to listen to. This is when I turn to the wonderful services of Amazon.com. As most of you probably know, Amazon has tons of free music. So much free music I can't get to it all. But I like to occasionally cruise through the top free albums and the top free song downloads.
Free Amazon MP3 Albums
Free Amazon MP3 Songs
I found a lot of good music today so I wanted to share some of the free albums with you. Since there were so many, I figured I would break it down by genre and then comment on my favorites. Everyone should be able to find something they like from this list.
Rock - Fearless Records Summer Sampler '11
Indie Pop - 23 This Year: The Sub Pop Amazon Sampler
So many different sounds coming off of this sampler. It's definitely a free download to check out. I love how the song "Helplessness Blues" by the Fleet Foxes builds throughout the song. I love the words to the chorus of "Lost in My Mind" by The Head and the Heart. I love the acoustic guitar on "Not Enough" by J Mascis.
