Free Download: "Can't Let Go" by Heaven's Basement

Artist: Heaven's Basement
Song: Can't Let Go
Album: Filthy Empire

"The song 'Can't Let Go' is about the line between infatuation and obsession," Sid Glover tells Rolling Stone. "It was written to sound like an adoring love song but in reality, if you read it literally, it's a creepy song about a guy who is actually keeping a girl prisoner."

Free Download: "Truth Be Told" by Kevin Seconds

Artist: Kevin Seconds
Song: Truth Be Told
Album: Off Stockton

"The song was initially written as a full-on old time-y gospel song with a bluesy, belter of a singer like Janis Joplin singing the lead parts," Kevin Seconds tells Rolling Stone. "I tried recording it that way but about midway through realized that I was no blues or gospel singer and it would feel just as nice, sparse, and quietly done."

Free Download: "Joy" by Stone Jack Jones

Artist: Stone Jack Jones
Song: Joy
Album: Ancestor

"You are dying. You are in pain. Excruciating pain. We whisper to you 'Joy's a coming...Joy's a coming. Hang on.' And joy does come," Stone Jack Jones says of his track "Joy." She is real. A beautiful large Jamacian woman with a melodious voice and a smile to light the room, bearing drugs to comfort and help you dream your way to the other side. She also fixes your hair. This happened in a room in Atlanta where my mother-in-law lay dying."

Free Download: "Summer Cookout" by Dontae Winslow + Winslow Dynasty

Artist: Dontae Winslow + Winslow Dynasty feat. Questlove
Song: Summer Cookout
Album: Enter the Dynasty

"'Summer Cookout' was an amazing opportunity for me to explore the more soulful roots of jazz and its gospel/quartet roots," Dontae Winslow tells Rolling Stone. "I love the trumpet going through a Hendrix style wahwah pedal for the main melody, because it catches the listner off guard. Questlove recorded the drums at his studio with his unique tuning and sounds that only he gets from a kit with a huge bass kick drum. 'Summer Cookout' for me is the jam that you'd put on in my hometown in Baltimore when the crabcakes would come out. It's a date with food, summer, fun, and a girl like you!"

Free Download: "Verlaine Shot Rimbaud" by Lydia Loveless

Artist: Lydia Loveless
Song: Verlaine Shot Rimbaud
Album: Somewhere Else

"I was reading quite a bit of poetry for inspiration when I was writing the album, and Paul Verlaine's work was particularly influential," Lydia Loveless tells Rolling Stone. "He's such a Debbie Downer. I love the story of him shooting Arthur Rimbaud in a drunken rage and not even doing a very good job at it. The song is based off that, but also any power struggle of a relationship, particularly a creative one. I personally love conflict in all my relationships. Maybe not enough to shoot someone, but, ya know.."

Free Download: "Velvet Sing" by Joseph King

Artist: Joseph King
Song: Velvet Skin
Album: Wanderlusting

"This song isn't about the end of a romantic relationship," Joseph King tells Rolling Stone. "It's about the moment of realization that you've become someone you're not, or don't want to be, relative to a certain person or situation, and no one is the better for it. Walking away is simply a matter of self-preservation, and the gentlest thing you can do for everyone's sake."

Free Download: "Duane Allman" by Amy Ray

Artist: Amy Ray
Song: Duane Allman
Album: Goodnight Tender

"I was listening to The Allman Brothers when I was a young kind in the 70's. There was something so defiant yet vulnerable in their songs. It was my first taste of what I would love about southern rock boys," Amy Ray tells Rolling Stone. "I was so young that it didn't even dawn on me that Duane had died, but when I did realize it, it was my rock and roll coming of age. Susan Tedeschi of Tedeschi Trucks Band graciously agreed to sing some harmonies on 'Duane Allman' and without a touch of irony, recorded some killer tracks at her and Derek's studio in Florida. Her voice gave the song the wings it needed."

Free Download: "Future One" by Cassorla

Artist: Cassorla
Song: Future One (feat. Taylor Goldsmith from Dawes)
Album: Amigos

"'Future One' came out of a phone call from a friend telling the story of his Friday night," Ben Cassorla tells Rolling Stone. "He had a giant fight with his lady and then, because they live together, he attempted to sleep a foot away from her still seething in anger. I loved the idea of two people humming with emotion inches away from each other. When I talked to Taylor about singing on it, we decided to leave in the demo recording of the chorus so there'd be two voices. Two people, two voices."

Free Download: "Adder(f)all" by Tei Shi

Artist: Tei Shi
Song: Adder(f)all
Album: Saudade (EP)

"The song came about from taking three different ideas I had for separate songs and joinging them into one," Valerie Teicher tells Rolling Stone. "Instead of making a really structured song I had looped these three sections/meoldy lines over one another, building them up and layering with harmonies. It was originally acapella and when the the instrumentals were added it really came into it's own."
