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 email@example.com. Thanks!
I was definitely excited to hear the new Black Keys music with Danger Mouse involved, and I loved "Tighten Up" when I first heard it. It's only grown on me since. It's the kind of song that I want playing on my iPod while I'm walking in some fierce black heels. So, I was surprised to see a video that wasn't dimly lit, slightly drunk and noticeably sexy (as I had hoped). Instead, humor prevailed, with a multi-generational focus on getting the girl, complete with toy trucks, blood, and half-eaten donuts.
