Free Friday (“FL&R”) – September 22

     Free and Legal Downloads? Yes, at least temporarily. Bands often temporarily permit free downloads of their releases.  The end of an offer may be based on the expiration of a set period of time or on a limited number of downloads.  But at least for now, here are two songs from the Southern Hemisphere that qualify as Free, Legal and Recommended (FL&R) downloads.
     Finding songs that can be legally downloaded is easy. The difficult task is to find legally downloadable music that we recommend. Our plan is to post at least one FL&R song each Friday. 
     “Brother Sister” dates back, but we missed it. The song belongs to Sahara Beck from Australia (Sunshine, Queensland). The features that make the track blogworthy – the innocence in the lead vocals, the richness of the backing vocals, and the interesting approach to the percussion.

     We Are Charlie (WAC) generate Indie Rock from Pretoria, South Africa. According to their bio:
  "Dylan Christie (voice and guitar) met Wesley Reinecke (drums) in high school. The two have been making music together since 2008. After a few years exploration in the music scene they found a home in the indie sound and WAC was conceived.  Rudolph de Villiers (bass) joined the band in mid-2016 to further enrich the sound.
  We Are Charlie are energetic and up-beat. Their style is one which constants highly distinct guitar melodies, drums and bass provide a solid, groovy yet functional backbone. These instrumental elements become a foundation over which WAC convey their honest (and a little complex) message and approach to lyrics."
