    Free Music Friday With Prince Rupert’s Drops And Nervous Curtains

    Welcome to another installment of Project Rhythm Seed’s Free Music Friday. Our featured bands today share a common affinity for psychedelic pop and 60’s music. The first, Prince Rupert’s Drops comes to us from Brooklyn, NY. Their track, “Pillar To Post” is a beat driven trip back to San Francisco’s Haight-Ashbury scene. Track 2 today comes to us from the Lone Star State’s Nervous Curtains. It’s called “Wired To Make Waves” and it has punk overtones, yet smacks of early Devo.

    Free Music Friday With Wild Nothing And Wojcik

    Hi everybody and welcome to another edition of Project Rhythm Seed’s Free Music Friday. Today we offer a diverse selection of music from two completely different bands. Nothing about them is the same; not even similar. But each song grabbed us in its own singular way, and for totally different reasons.

    Free Music Friday With The Menahan Street Band

    Today on Project Rhythm Seed’s Free Music Friday, we are pleased to bring you a song from The Menahan Street Band. We first introduced you to these guys in March of 2011 as part of the background on an unknown artist, at the time, called Charles Bradley (read that article here). From the very start The Menahan Street Band has been extremely instrumental (no pun intended) in Charles’ musical successes. MSB co-founder, Thomas Brenneck, co-wrote, and produced Charles Bradley’s album No Time For Deaming. The band played on the album, and has subsequently toured with Charles as his backing band for much of his busy concert schedule. We saw them at The Echo in Los Angeles with Charles. It was great show. The Menahan Street Band form a tight and driving groove behind Charles’ soulful voice (read that article here).

    Free Music Friday With Balmorhea

    Hello again and welcome to another edition of Project Rhythm Seed’s Free Music Friday. Today we are pleased to bring you an instrumental band from Austin, Texas called Balmorhea.

    The band won initial attention for the “lush with a slow-burning, wordless, and ambient Americana,” (New Yorker) found in the cosmic dialog begun with their eponymous debut in 2007. That attention was furthered by subsequent releases in 2008 (Rivers Arms), 2009 (All is Wild, All is Silent), and 2010 (Constellations).

Today’s two picks are no different.

The first is called “Waiting In The Afterglow” and the second is “North Atlantic Drift”. Their sound is ambient/electronic and they serve up the perfect soundtrack for a rainy walk through the forest, a hike to the top of a 14’er, a lazy warm afternoon on the beach or anything else your heart desires.

    Free Music Friday With Glass Theory And Io Echo

    Well, here we are at the end of another week and on the doorstep of another Free Music Friday. The sad news that musician Bob Welch has died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound crossed our desks yesterday. It seems as if rock’s royalty is disappearing at an alarming rate these days. As much as we would like to pay each one of them our respects and send them on their way from this world with a fitting tribute, we’re beginning to think that this blog could quickly turn in to an obituary section, something none of us wants. So as much as we can we are going to keep mention of death to a bare minimum and get on with music news for the living. This one’s for Bob.

    Free Music Friday

    This week’s Free Music Friday is dedicated to the memory of Donna Summer. Although she gained the title of Queen of Disco, Summer grew up on a steady diet of rock and roll, the influence of which can be heard throughout her musical career. And in turn, she influenced many of the singers that would follow her. Donna Summer died of cancer Thursday morning in Naples, Fla. She was 63.

    Free Music Friday With The Hudson Branch And Jonquil

    Hi everybody and welcome to another edition of Project Rhythm Seed’s Free Music Friday. This is our favorite day of the week, not only because we head into the weekend, but also because we get to share some great free music with you, our viewers and listeners. Right now all of us here in the northern hemisphere are in the height of spring, the time of the year when everything is blossoming and flowering. The music business is also flowering right now, with multiple releases coming out every week (Monday in the UK and EU & Tuesday in the US). Consequently there is lots of new music hitting the airwaves, record stores and internet; a great time of the year indeed!
