Want some free music? Sure, no problem. Here are a few great Daytrotter Sessions (3-5 songs each) from some great artists/bands: The Hold Steady, DM Stith, and Jessica Lea Mayfield. A list of all the free, downloadable Daytrotter Sessions. If you don't know about Daytrotter you will be shocked at all the goodness, so go get some!

DM Stith: "French film maker, Armel Hostiou, took this fragment of a pop song [Stith's "BMB"] and turned it into a deep, venomous, cavernous trip, like Lynch on downers, or Bergman on speed." "BMB" is from Stith's very creative and dark Heavy Ghost, which is well worth owning. Love this video...
Bell Orchestre likes lightning, and I like their song "Stripes" (from As Seen Through Windows)...
