Last Week in Free MP3s: 2-24
A good guitar wail can cover up a multitude of sins. So can some soulful lyrics, which this track has in abundance. There’s some spoken word thrown in that’s distracting and unnecessary. What could have been an amazing song turns into a so-so listening experience.
“Heathen (The Rays)” – David Bowie
It’s David Bowie performing live. It’s the sound that every half-baked band is attempting to capture on their synthesizers and their pretentious lyrics. Get the one that made this sound iconic – quick before the powers that be realize they’re giving away Bowie for free.
“Stare at Wheel” – Dios
A throwback of psychedelic-rock sounds are all over this song in a good way. The lyrics are sung in an LSD-type haze. Think Jefferson Airplane’s “White Rabbit” only hipper, faster and more imaginative. Download it quickly.
“Acts of Man” – Midlake
Slow-tempo and rich with meaning “Acts of Man” is one of those tracks that forces you to sit and think about what is being sung. Give it a listen and judge for yourself.
“What Makes Him Act So Bad” – Adam Green
Solid lyrics with rocking guitar licks is what Adam Green has to offer on this track. Give it a shot before people realize that it’s free.
“I’ll Be Oh So Good” – Velma Green & Her High Steppers
Ever been to a Juke Joint or a black-southern honky tonk? Well if you have and you’re in the mood to recapture that vibe or if you’ve never been and want to experience a good beat with straight-forward lyrics, then get this track. It’s fun and danceable and will take you back to a time when music was devoid of high-falutin ambiguity.
“Answer to Yourself” – The Soft Pack
Solid rock track that isn’t monotonous or unobtrusive. Works best played low when you need some background music or if you need more than silence to get things done.
