Free Music! Projekt! Bandcamp! Darkwave!

It’s Saturday.  Why not treat yourself to some free music?  Today’s selection: The Collection, by Black Tape for a Blue Girl. This album is a collection of works by Black Tape for a Blue Girl, a Darkwave band out of Portland, Oregon.

The band was formed by Sam Rosenthal, who also founded Projekt Records.  Projekt Records is one of many, many labels that can be found on the amazing Bandcamp.com website.  So, downloading this album will help introduce you to (possibly) Darkwave music, Projekt Records, and Bandcamp.  What a fabulous trifecta!  And yes, the album is really free, but you will notice the chance to pay what you want (which includes paying nothing) – may I suggest at least leaving a tip?  Totally up to you, no judgement.  I use PayPal there all the time, but that isn’t the only payment method available.

Be sure to browse around while you’re visiting Bandcamp.  Look around by band, album, or song, or best yet by genre.  I have found so much to love there.  Want to see the music I have acquired there, or have on my wish list? You can even see the bands and record labels I am following.

Anyway, why not get something fresh and new today?  Do your ears a favor.

Found Music

I’m always happy to find yummy new (to me) Shoegaze and Dreampop to listen to.  This week I found the Winks & Kisses: Melted Ep by Airiel.  This Shoegaze gem dates back to 2004, but it’s a new discovery for me.

New Music Alert!!

Autumn’s Grey Solace just released a new album titled Celestial Realms.  You won’t want to miss the newest offering from this ethereal band hailing from St. Augustine.

Download it now from bandcamp.com.  What, you don’t know about Bandcamp?  Time to do some musical exploring!
