LISTEN UP: Your Daily Dose of the Best Music Ever

  • Beck
  • Aquarium Drunkard has posted some old tracks from Beck’s1994 indie release "One Foot In the Grave".  What’s interesting is Beck was doing "freak folk" over ten years before anyone ever heard of Devendra Banhart or Joanna Newsom.  He’s the OG (or OFF, whatever).
  • Speaking of Devendra Banhart, Muzzle of Bees has a nice group of tracks from his live appearance on KCRW’s always-amazing "Morning Becomes Eclectic".
  • MOKB’s got tracks from a Bella Union sampler.  Be sure to get Midlake’s amazing new song "Roscoe" – that track’s been ripping my iPod up!
  • Check out these tracks (scroll down) from The Figurines, and awesome new band from Denmark that sounds a little like a harder-edged, more focused version of Modest Mouse.
  • And finally, Brooklyn-based Kidsmoke has a broad-but-rocking track called "Sound It Out" available for download.
