New Summer Music is the new awesome

Between all the new music available on myspace and mp3 blogs these days (and the lists of music that cameron sends me because that is all he does at work), I have gotten shamelessly addicted to hitting the 'download' button and getting all sorts of free new music. The internet has been turned into this lovely musical buffet, where you get to sample a little bit of lots of different things and figure out which bands you really like and want more of.

so. i have compiled some of my favorites - freebie music from the past few months that i think make a lovely summer mix. I have done the hunting and gathering so that you don't have to. download. listen. enjoy.

(with bonus preview sufjan stevens track on there, from his soon-to-be-released album Avalanche, outtakes and extras from the illinois album)

[y]our summer flings
the deadly snakes ** gore veil
sound team ** your eyes are liars
figurine ** IMpossible
tapes n' tapes ** 50's parking
spinto band ** brown boxes
kite flying society ** if i could split
guggenheim grotto ** one for sorrow
sukpatch ** bottom of the well
beirut ** postcards from italy
irving ** turn of the century
half-handed cloud ** we're very greatly loved
data panik ** rulers and the states
envelopes ** sister in love
dĂșnĂ© ** last jump
the amazing pilots ** the price of winter
chris koza ** midnight rose
sufjan stevens ** henney buggy band
the lucksmiths ** from macaulay station
13ghosts ** robert j
asleep in the sea ** dance on
bedroom walls ** do the buildings and cops make you smile?
vells ** blue blue bones
sunset rubdown ** stadiums and shrines II
the pipettes ** pull shapes
oh no! oh my! ** walk in the park
norfolk & western ** gilded age
the wombats ** moving to new york

this will be a limited download, so get it while its hot. please note that i am not technologically advanced enough to know how to do a fancy zipped file on the site, so i have to use this filesharing program that makes you wait 45 seconds before you can download the file. i am sure it is so that you can stare at the advertising on their site. sorry. after the 45 seconds go by, you can download the cd in the top right-hand side of the page.

    I'm sure the music is great but what I like most is the Sexy Personals pop-up add.
