Welcome to another edition of Project Rhythm Seed’s Free Music Friday. Today we are pleased to bring you two acts who have nothing in common with each other, except for the fact that they will both be appearing at this year’s South By Southwest (SXSW) music festival in Austin, Texas.
Hi everyone and welcome to another edition of Project Rhythm Seed’s Free Music Friday. This week’s edition is dedicated to Whitney Houston. Although she fought a constant battle with drug and alcohol addiction, she possessed one of the best voices ever to grace the musical stage. Her incredible range and ability to convey thought and emotion through her voice were second to none. She will be missed.
Welcome to another edition of Project Rhythm Seed’s Free Music Friday. Here we are four weeks into 2012 and things are heating up. Today we have two new tracks for you. The first is from an artist named Damien Jurado. His label, Secretly Canadian, sent us this great new track called “Museum Of Flight” from his upcoming album Maraqopa. Our second track is from Madi Diaz, who we have highlighted before on Project Rhythm Seed. She has a new album out called Plastic Moon. The track we have for you today is called “Gimme A Kiss”. We hope you download and enjoy both of these great new artists. If you have any suggestions of artists or tracks that you would like us to cover in the future, let us know. We’ll see you next week for more music news, reviews and interviews.
Hi everybody and welcome to the third edition of Project Rhythm Seed’s Free Music Friday for 2012. Sadly, we received news of Etta James’ passing this morning in Riverside, California. She died of complications from leukemia at age 73. The singer had one of the best and most versatile voices in the business. Her songs, often drenched in strings, were big winners for Chess Records. Some, like her signature hit “At Last” went on to be absolute staples. Etta was inducted into both the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame and the Blues Hall Of Fame. Over the course of her career she won four Grammy awards, one of which was for best jazz vocal performance, which she won in 1995 for the album Mystery Lady: Songs of Billie Holiday. Etta died with her husband and sons at her bedside. This edition of Free Music Friday is dedicated to her. Rest in peace Etta!
Hi there. If you’re reading this, then that means you made it through the second week of 2012. Congratulations! It was a busy week here at Project Rhythm Seed as we continue to gear up for another year of international music coverage. We have lots of new features, reviews and interviews that will be coming your way this year. Many of the bands that we present to you are either wrapping up recording, or preparing release of their new records. And others have already released and are getting ready to take off for a short warmup tour before this year’s SXSW in March.
Hi everybody and welcome to the first edition of Project Rhythm Seed’s Free Music Friday for 2012. We’re expecting a bumper year for new music. Lots of major and indie acts are getting ready to release new albums, and many more are still in the studio, working hard to create this year’s finest. Today’s FMF tracks were brought to us by two acts who are already ahead of the game. They both have their projects finished, polished and prepared for release. And they’ve been kind enough to offer us a taste of what is to come. We hope you enjoy this new music from Orcas and Leonard Friend. And remember to support your favorite musicians by buying their latest releases and getting out to see them live when they pass through a venue near you.
Another year in the bag! And here we are posting our last Free Music Friday of 2011. We thought it would be fitting to post tracks from two artists who have new albums releasing at the beginning of 2012. Both tracks are standouts, each possessing a high level of originality and artistic depth. Both artists have taken their time, and worked closely with producers to hone their sound and musical offering. Both artists are extremely talented writers and performers. But that is where the similarity ends.
Hi everyone and welcome to another musical edition of Project Rhythm Seed’s Free Music Friday. Today we have two new bands for you, one from the East coast and one from the West. Spacecamp comes to us from Brooklyn (yes, another one from Brooklyn!). They released a 5 song EP in November called Alibi and we have a track form that EP called “Miko DTB” (dropped the ball). You can also stream the entire EP on Soundcloud. The second band, Yukon Blonde, is from Vancouver, BC. They are a four piece that remind us of a modern day Beach Boys with a George Harrison guitar. We are happy to offer a track called “Choices” off of their new Fire//Water EP.
Hi everyone and welcome to Project Rhythm Seed’s Free Music Friday. Today we have two new tracks from two of our favorite artists. The first is from Living Things called “Fake It Baby, Fake It (La Dame Nature)”. Project Rhythm Seed’s, Myles Crawley, interviewed Lillian Berlin, the lead singer of Living Things, earlier this year when they met up for coffee in Los Angeles. You can view that interview here. We also gave away their Malocchio mix tape to all of you. Check that out here.
Hi everybody! Hope you’re well! As the week draws to an end, its always great because every day brings us closer to the weekend, and to another edition of Project Rhythm Seed’s Free Music Friday. Today we are pleased to offer you two more bands from New York. There is so much fabulous music coming out of the Big Apple right now and today we’ve got two more examples of that – Charles Bradley from Bedstuy and This Is The Now from DUMBO (for those of you unfamiliar, Bedstuy (short for Bedford-Stuyvesant) and DUMBO (an acronym for Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass) are neighborhoods in Brooklyn, NY).
Hello everyone and welcome to another edition of Project Rhythm Seed’s Free Music Friday. There are cities in the US that continually generate a lot of great new music. Tops on the list at present are Seattle, Washington, Portland, Oregon and New York, New York. Maybe because of slightly more affordable housing, Brooklyn has been particularly vibrant and prolific, with many bands specifically coming from the Williamsburg neighborhood. Our two groups highlighted today are fixtures on the New York music scene and we’re very pleased to offer you free tracks from each.
Welcome to another edition of Project Rhythm Seed’s Free Music Friday. For all of you starting your holiday shopping early, consider purchasing a few things from our Rhythm Seed Store. We have great music, clothing, films, books, musical instruments and electronics. The best part is that 20% of profits are donated to public school music programs, here in the US and elsewhere, to help make sure that all kids have the opportunity to play music and follow their dreams.
Hello again and welcome to another edition of Project Rhythm Seed’s Free Music Friday. This week flew by, and it somewhat feels as if we were going against time, which to a certain degree we were thanks to air travel. On Monday we brought you the news of a posthumous album by Amy Winehouse called Lioness: Hidden Treasures. On Tuesday it was the Swedish band Korallreven’s new release, entitled An Album By Korallreven. On Wednesday it was all about Duran Duran’s new video for “Girl Panic!” starring Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford, Eva Herzigova, Helena Christensen and Yasmin Le Bon. Thursday we took the day off entirely. Yikes! We’ll chalk it up to a late night in the studio. Today we are pleased to bring you two great new artists/bands, Mannequin Men and El May. So get busy downloading and we’ll see you next week.

Hi everyone and welcome to another edition of Project Rhythm Seed’s Free Music Friday. This was most definitely a week of distinction, one that will stand out in our minds for some time to come. Sadly, the world lost a visionary mind and a wonderful human being in Steve Jobs. He set the bar pretty high for all of us that consider creativity and vision to be important benchmarks for a life well lived. This week’s Free Music Friday is dedicated to Steve.
