Free MP3 Album Download:Canon Blue-The Halcyon EP

canon-blue-halcyon-ep

So I am a little behind the curve on this one. A while back Brooke Waggoner talked about this guy with HM Magazine, and so I checked out his stuff and just loved it. It is a strange mix of folk and electronica, kind of like if Bradley Hathaway got remixed by Son Lux (if you know who either of those people are, you get a cookie).  This is some truly unique and beautiful music. If you download this EP, there will be a letter included from the artist, but I thought I would post it for you to know where this music is coming from.

The story goes that in the old days, during the winter solstice, all the oceans in the world would lay calm and the bad weather would subside. It was then that the kingfisher bird would fly out into the open sea to build its nest and lay its eggs, believing they would hatch in time before the waves began to rise again. This time came to be known as the halcyon days.

The Halcyon EP was recorded in my bedroom during the month of November, 2007. Winter always seems to be a more creative time for me, and the sudden cold and slower pace that was settling in over Nashville provided a welcome excuse to stay inside and work. A few friends came by as well, each with their own special sounds from cellos to horns to live drums, adding new colors to the mix.

This EP, for me, is a way to reflect on yet another year quietly slipping by, enjoying the present stillness of a Tennessee winter, and looking forward to what is coming up over those yon there hills. I hope you are to able find something in it too. thanks for listening…

Free MP3 Album Download:Silent Words

silent-words-cover-small-2

So this week’s download is a little weird. So, the group Silent Words consists of emcees The Runaway and Qu-C. They are also brothers. Silent words is’nt a Hip-Hop group though, they are an instrumental one. That’s right, two rappers get together and make an album with no vocals on it.  But the result is beautiful, and you can just get this image in your head of these two guys to playing their heart’s out as the songs play on.  Sometimes with these free downloads you just gotta follow us, I mean nobody thought they would like (morse) either, but that album is awesome!

Download a few sample tracks (the links will take you to Mediafire):

Silent Words-Run’s Rhythm
Silent Words- Southern Country

Then get the whole album. Click on the link below, save the .ZIP file to your computer, EXTRACT ALL FILES, and sit back with some sweet instrumentals.

Another oldie but a goodie…this hit the web around Christmas. So there are two Christmas songs. Don’t let that throw you off though, this is a great mix of indie-folk, and progressive pop that is interesting and eclectic. The Aaron Espe and Bradley Hathaway songs are amazing.  This mix was put together by Everyday Joe’s Coffee House in Colorado.  I could tell you all about this download, but instead, here is what the good people at Everyday Joes had to say:
