Disclaimer: You May Find a Broken Link

So, there USED to be freenapster.com, and it USED to provide access to almost any artist's music. It was pretty awesome, and I linked ~90% of this blog's recommendations to that site. Now, apparently, Free Napster is no more. Booooooo.

It will be a long, on-going task of mine to redirect the links to somewhere you can hear the music, but in the meantime, if you click on a link that brings you to Napster where it asks you to sign in:
1) Be angry at them, for disrupting your chance to enjoy a good song
2) Google the song and still check it out, because it's awesome

If you have another source I should be using, please don't hesitate to send it my way. Email me for that, and any music recommendations, at tracy@groundwm.com. Thanks!

My Pitchfork Thoughts

Well, I had a FABulous time at P4K 2009. :) Like the rest of my postings, I'm going to keep this review brief!

  • Yeasayer - They were on my list of "must sees" and I had pretty high expectations for them, and yet they still blew me away. (Dancing in the rain to Yeasayer = favorite Pitchfork moment of 09) Way to be really awesome Yeasayer and turn an existing fan into a exciting fan. :)
  • Final Fantasy- I love a good one-man band, and what Owen Pallett did to that violin was inspiring.

  • The Walkmen - Not only are they "above" playing the song that made them famous, but their set was blah overall. So sad.

  • Seeing that Whole Foods had gigantic bags of cherries available for sale as a healthy snack. Those were delicious and refreshing.
  • Perusing the poster artists - found a few promising designers.
  • Randomly running into folks from Moxie Motive, Loyal Divide, Verona Red and Bully in the Hallway.
  • Making the most awesome picture buttons ever. :)
  • Pretty much every moment, as music festivals are my heaven-on-earth.

  • Realizing that the crazy, colliding fans I burried myself in for Matt & Kim actually squished all the ripe and juicy cherries in my purse, getting cherry juice on my purse, my pants, my sweater, my hand, my boyfriend, my phone, etc.
  • Losing one of the most awesome picture buttons ever. :(
  • Watching some drunk loser cut off some handicap guy waiting to use the handicap porta-potty. All the folks in my porta-potty line gave him the stink eye when he got out. Loser.
