Cherokee Boogie: Two albums of blues tracks about Native Americans. Haven't downloaded/listened myself, but it's the sort of compilation I wouldn't have imagined existed, but here the internet is trying to give it away for free.
The Signal: oh I'm like totally so scared - A mix of ghost-tacular spook-arific fantasmagodgicalistic tunes for your entertainment. Can also be used for purification ceremonies and the banishing of unwanted spirits. Available for a limited time, downloaded from elsewhere, track list in the id3 tags. Notes after the cut.
Also: BOO! Ha ha ha! SCARED YOU, you fraidy cat! It's only text on a screen! (I hope I do not ironically die from text on a screen someday.)
The Signal: EP059 - Oh boy oh boy, have we got some excitement waiting for you. Almost as exciting as when cowboys try to abduct space-faring feminists! (I hope it all turns out to be a misunderstanding and the cowboy is just trying to help!)
So what do you need to know... oh yeah. The link is up for a limited period of time, you should support the artists involved if you hear something you like, the password is signal and the playlist is attached to the file's id3 tags. Notes are after the jump. We love America. We also love to hear what you think of the mix, so long as you are positive to the point that we're almost embarrassed. Ha!
The Signal: EP058 - Relax, you're not crazy. We've pulled together for you a series of musical compositions custom suited to your needs. Take a deep breath, relax, and sink into The Signal.
The file is available via the link above for a limited period of time. The password is: signal The tracklisting is in the id3 tags. Notes are after the jump. Questions are not responded to. Dinah's in the kitchen with someone we know, but would prefer to remain unnamed.
We hope you enjoy the mix, but if you don't, that's fine, because we'll enjoy it enough for all of you.
Hey, did you know that noted Canadian turntablist Kid Koala is giving away his new album, The Slew? It's true!
I've got it downloaded, haven't listened yet, but the guy's a legend and I've liked most everything he's done, so it's worth checking out. Dude scratched a muted trumpet jazz solo once, so come on.
In other music-downloading news, I found a great weblog for instrumental oddness and beat-related fun: check out mixtape breaks when you have a chance. Right now, as I type this, they've got the DJ Shadow/Cut Chemist "Brain Freeze" collab up top, so that tells you their heart's in the right place.
