    Free Music Friday With Exitmusic and Korallreven

    Welcome to another edition of Project Rhythm Seed’s Free Music Friday. We’ve got some great music for you today. The first free track is from a band that we really like a lot. They are called Exitmusic from Brooklyn, NY. Their debut album, Passage, is out on May 22nd. We have an advance copy that we’ve been playing to death around here. It’s an excellent album full of moody, dark, uplifting and very intriguing songs. We’re pleased to present the title cut from the album today.

    Free Music Friday With Solander And Haroula Rose

    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.

    Free Music Friday With Simone Felice And Lucy Michelle & The Velvet Lapelles

    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!

    Free Music Friday With Orcas And Leonard Friend

    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.

    Free Music Friday With Lana Del Rey And Among Savages

    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.

    Free Music Friday With Spacecamp And Yukon Blonde

    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.

    Free Music Friday With Little Silver And The Color Bars

    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.

    Free Music Friday – The Loom and Los Rakas Remix Of Goapele

    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.
