Free and Legal Downloads? Yes, at least temporarily. Bands often temporarily permit free downloads of new releases. The end of an offer might be based upon reaching a maximum number of downloads or the expiration of a set period of time. But at least for now, here are songs that qualify as Free, Legal and Recommended (FL&R) downloads. When the downwardly directed arrows disappear from the Soundcloud streams, so do the legal downloads.
Finding songs that can be legally downloaded is easy. The difficult task is to find legally downloadable music that we recommend. The theme of this post is controlled frenzy. The first song fits more comfortably within that theme, but there are reasons to assert that all three belong.
The controlled frenzy starts at the 2:40 mark of “Ramses The Evil Brother.” At that point, the song from The Holy has the feel of “Baba O'Riley” (1971) by The Who. The Holy is based in Helsinki. The members are Eetu Henrik Iivari (vocals, guitars, synth), Pyry Peltonen (guitars), Laura Kangasniemi (bass, synth), Samppa Kaartinen (drums), and Eero Jääskeläinen (drums).

YISHAY is a Los Angeles area artist who has roots in North Dakota. “Living Out My Life” begins in a relaxed manner, but much of the song contains the quick-twitch guitar that first enters at 0:40. He identifies his genre as Traprock and will release a second EP, “Trinity Tapes II” on August 8.
