Projekt Records, via Bandcamp, has a free digital download of Area’s Agate Lines, a best of/retrospective album with material from all five albums and previously unreleased songs. Area is a darkwave/dreampop band and this album is available at name your price (including free). Of course the nice thing to do would be to pay something, think of it as a tip. All the tracks can be previewed at the Bandcamp page. Go for it!
For your enjoyment, another track from Chandeen, The Wild Unknown:
It is my considered opinion that Twilight Time by the Moody Blues is actually the first Dreampop song. Just one more reason why Days of Future Passed is a big reason why the Moody Blues belong in the Hall of Fame.
Anyway, here is a video of the song. Surprisingly enough, I know the person that made it.
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.

This goes back a couple years… The Raveonettes cover of The Doors’ The End, released on a Doors tribute album. This song is on my iPod play list of personal favorites by The Raveonettes.
