As long as we’re talking about free music (100% legal), here’s another cool artist I found on NoiseTrade, Andrew Bird. The NoiseTrade Sampler. I first met this artist’s work on “Noble Beast” (Fat Possum, 2009), when a friend gifted me a single, and most recently on his latest record, “Break It Yourself” (Bella Union/Mom+Pop 2012). Cool guy. Cool sampler. A worry free way to meet a new artist. Be sure to check out Bella Union records. I’ll be seeing Veronica Falls tomorrow night in Seattle, and will be photographing the show and writing a review. You’ll see it all right here!
