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 is a song that qualifies as a Free, Legal and Recommended (FL&R) download.
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.
“As Long As I Can See” is a vocal gem, but the instruments don’t fall short of the mark. The percussion is periodically rousing and the guitar holds its own. The track is from Broke Royals, a duo based in Washington, DC (their social media sometimes cites Virginia).
Quoting their press content:
Broke Royals was not supposed to be a band.
In 2014, after both graduating from William & Mary, Colin Cross enlisted Philip Basnight to record a few demos for Cross to shop to potential clients of his recording studio. Their instant musical chemistry in the studio paved the way for a dynamic partnership and, thus, Broke Royals was born. In just three years, Basnight and Cross have honed a singular sound, been praised by Billboard for their "sing-along, arena-ready sound," named an Artist On The Rise by Southwest Airlines, and one of the best live bands in DC by CBS.
The duo walked back into the studio for a fourth time to record their self-titled, debut album with producer John Naclerio at his famed Nada Recording Studio in New York. Seamlessly integrating traditional rock with new digital elements, the guitar-driven rock, pop hooks, folk harmonies and Cross’s infectious beats fuse gracefully with Basnight's lyrical narratives.
True to the roots of their earliest moments in the studio, Basnight and Cross continue to find new ways to blend inspiration and genres that define their complex modern rock sound.
