I know we generally put Daytrotter biz at the bottom since there is something from Daytrotter in our best free downloads every week, but this was a special case. MidWest supergroup Gayngs (featuring members of Bon Iver, Megafaun, Andrew Bird, Happy Apple, DoomTree, Solid Gold, and others) did a special Daytrotter session in Eau Claire, WI (home of Bon Iver and Megafaun). It’s worth a listen. It’s Prince endorsed.
Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeroes did a session with Laundromatinee. At the link you can also check out some video of the footage.
A live recording of Pearl & the Beard doing the Backyard Brunch Series.
The Utne Reader October Mixtape which features some great tracks from Mice Parade, Junip, The Octopus Project, ARP, and Matthew Dear.
Dream Boat (Page Campbell & Dan Donahue) played a show at Flickr in Athens that Southern Shelter recorded.
Puss ‘n Boots playing live at Triple Rock in Minneapolis, as recorded by Empty Tapes. You know what I like about the Empty Tapes blog? The precision with which the recordist tells you about the recording, where they were standing, equipment, etc. It’s fantastic.
