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!

Recommended Song of the Day


8/28/09: Ice on the Sheets, by Ugly Casanova

Listen to it HERE

Wow. Ok. I just discovered Ugly Casanova and I instantly loved them; anyone who loves Modest Mouse would. The only reason a Modest Mouse fan wouldn't love them is because they're too similar to Modest Mouse... or so I thought.

To paraphrase my understanding from Wikipedia, in '98 when MM was touring they met a guy named Edgar Graham, aka "Ugly Cassanova." Supposedly this guy wrote really good music, played some of it for MM, and, being the pretty insanely-reclusive guy that Edgar was, he up and disappeared forever. So, in an effort to bring Edgar out of hiding, the lead singer of Modest Mouse, Isaac Brock, put together a band and recorded some of his songs. His efforts failed and Edgar was never heard from again.

Except- we later learn that due to Brock's heavy lisp and his consequential embarrassment from it, Brock made this Edgar guy up so he could escape constant interviews. He's a tricky one, that Brock.
