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!

I Finally Discovered Shearwater - Better Late Than Never

Austin, TX

I follow the Chicago blog Cream TEAM on twitter, and they just tweeted their encouragement for everyone to get familiar with Shearwater before their next album, "The Golden Archipelago," is released on 2/23. MY GOD am I glad I did!

If you like Akron/Family, Liam Finn and/or Arcade Fire, you'll love Shearwater. I first headed to their website, where they offer a track or two sample from previous albums. I highly recommend you head HERE and listen for yourself! I LOVE them, most especially "Rooks" and "Red Sea, Black Sea."

If you'd like to act now on your newly acquired or recently revived love for Shearwater, you can pre-order their upcoming album directly from Matador, where you'll not only receive 15% off, but you'll also get a CD-sized perfect bound book.

You can hear more of their music HERE. Enjoy!
