Free and Legal Downloads? Yes, at least temporarily. Indie Obsessive is joining the tradition of passing on great deals on the day after Thanksgiving. Bands often temporarily permit free downloads of new releases. The end of the offer might be based upon reaching a maximum number of downloads or the expiration of some period of time. But at least for now, here are songs that qualify as Free, Legal and Recommended (FL&R) downloads.
The focus of this third Black Friday FL&R post is on tracks that were recently featured by the KEXP site as being a “Song of the Day.” Out of respect for KEXP, we will identify the page of the featured song, rather than providing a direct link to the download. That requires an extra step, but KEPX has some useful information about the bands, so it's worthwhile.
The free download is at the KEPX page http://blog.kexp.org/2014/11/17/song-of-the-day-dan-mangan-blacksmith-vessel/
A bonus: The song “Post-War Blues” is older, but is offered as a direct download from Soundcloud.
Dream Police is a side project of Mark Perro and Nick Chiericozzi, the guitarists and singers of the band The Men. The debut single is "Hypnotized." On Decemeber 6, 2014, Dream Police will visit San Francisco. They will perform at the Brick & Mortar.
