Free Album Download: (morse)-And War Came Forth

morse and war came forth

Our buddy (morse) is back with another offering of minimalist electronic goodness. If you were with us way back in the beginning, you will know that (morse) provided us with one of our very first Free Album Downloads. Its been a little while, but the mystery, the man is back with 6 tracks of ambient sound, Nintendo beats, and cryptic samples.

This is a “take a chance and you will love it” kind of thing. We love it, so hopefully that says something!

Free MP3 Download: Deepspace5 Double Headed

We return to the weekly free download with a double album drop from two of the Deepspace5 crew.

sev-statik-deejay-tone-school-shooting

The first comes from Sev Statik with the School Shooting EP. According to Sphere Of Hip-Hop, this whole album was put together in ONE day! It doesn’t show, because like everything Sev Statik, there is tons of depth, sincerity, and creativity in every track. He even sings a little on “Bravado”. This is one of my favorite things he has ever done.

playdough-bible-bus-mixtape-seanp

The second download come from my favorite emcee Playdough with The Bible Bus Mixtape. Like with everything else he does, the mixtape showcases Playdough‘s unique talent along with his playfulness at the same time. There isnt one track on here that leaves you with any doubt that Playdough is a phenomenal emcee, but also a earnest artist with alot to say. If you like anything this guys has done in the past, you will for sure dig this.

Free MP3 Album Download: Sev Statik-Silver LP

sev statik silver lp

Today’s free download is from the mighty Sev Statik. For those that don’t know Sev 1) you have been missing out and 2) he is one the key members of the underground hip-hop super-crew known as The Tunnelrats. Those familiar with Tunnelrats will know what to expect from Sev Statik; the dude is total underground hip-hop. His rhymes are complex and introspective, the beats are intricate and kind of grimy. There is alot of focus here on ministry, samples, and artistic hip-hop. Everything you could need…

The Silver LP is one of Sev Statik‘s first solo ventures, and last week he announced that not would most of his library be on a massive discount, but that this little gem would be for free. If you are into down-to-earth hip-hop with alot of heart and message, then you should download this album right NOW!

Free Download:Davey Jone’s Locker-Healthy People Prepare To Die

Davey Jones Locker Healthy People Prepare To Die

So Davey Jone’s Locker is this wild Pop Rock/Screamo/Progressive Rock band from Norway. I first heard about them over at Indie Vision Music, and I was impressed by their ability to keep things very melodic while keeping it very out of control. They arnt as hard to listen to as I am making them out to be, but they definitely have alot of energy element behind them. The best way to try to describe them was if Panic At The Disco and Fall Out Boy were all in the same band. You have the weird, off the wall quirkiness of Panic, and Fall Out Boy‘s energy. There I tried.

Healthy People People Prepare to die is the band’s first EP from 2005. While it is defiantly a less refined version of what the band is today, it has some killer songs, and properly showcases a band that has something special. Oh yea, and its free….

Free MP3 Download:Micheal Mannasseh-Mikestands

micheal-mannasseh-mikestands-reissue

This is actually kind of old. Michael Manasseh is a graphic designer, photographer, producer, and pretty awesome hip-hop artist. Mikestands features an array of interesting samples, honest lyrics, and a variation of styles that makes the entire album fresh from track one to the end.  This awesome offering is what believers should be doing with the genre of underground hip-hop. Heartfelt, intelligent, and interesting.

Free MP3 Album Download:Jets Under Fire-EP2

jets-under-fire-ep2

So if you were here last week, we introduced you to Austin’s own Jets Under Fire. They play progressive atmospheric rock, and they embody the description 100%.  Lots of soaring melody, guitar effects, electronic under tones, and cryptic lyrics create an all-in-one type of experience for fans of trippy, dream inducing rock music. This time around, they keep things a little on the up-tempo, exploring even more of their already expansive sound. In fact the last track even has a little Nine Inch Nails to it, if I can say that. Download it to see what I am talking about.

Free MP3 Album Download:Jets Under Fire-EP1

jets-under-fire-ep1

So after a few week of hip-hop and electronica, I thought we could feature a little rock for a change.  I believe this particular free download is way great. Jets Under Fire are a progressive rock band from right here in ol Austin Texas. Their music runs the gamut of mellow Radiohead-esque dream pop, to straight atmospheric trance rock. All in all these guys are all about creating a heavy mood with their intelligent blend of guitar rock and electronic back beats.  EP1 features three songs, and if you are REALLY nice to me I will post EP2 next week.

Free MP3 Album Download:Cookbook-I Love The 80s

cookbook-i-love-the-80s-cover-500x500

I know it is really hard to not let your eyes focus on that green lettering, but try to pay attention.  If you have been with us for a while, you know Cookbook, he isn’t new. He is one of the founding members of LA Symphony, and is the Cook of Cook & Uno, who were our very first free download on this site. Ahh, those were the days, I maybe posted once a week, the free downloads were put up whenever I felt like it. Now, if I don’t have a an album download by Tuesday, I’m losing sleep…

If you have listened to any of his other projects , you know what expect from this guy: straight hip-hop with a lot of goofiness, spiritual lyrics, and bouncy beats.  Cookbook is a really talented guy, and this album is such a summertime CD its not even funny. You will enjoy this best with the windows down, and have it cranked to about +20.

osengavol2

So, if you just loved last week’s free album download, you will equally enjoy Andy’s more recent installment to the Letters To The Editor series (download vol.1 NOW).  This time around the collection of songs is a bit shorter, but still follows Andy’s wit and talent through the many musical journeys he puts in front of us.  Really don’t know what else to say that I didn’t last week, but I think you will really love this one.
