FREE MP3: Right Away, Great Captain! - When I Meet Death
Are you into danger? Love? Lust? Betrayal? Sea faring? If so, Right Away, Great Captain a.k.a. singer-songwriter Andy Hull's latest release may be just what you're looking for. For the last six years, Hull, lead singer of Manchester Orchestra, has been telling the story of a 17th century sea captain betrayed by his wife and brother. The Church of the Good Thief is the third installment in the trilogy, and "When I Meet Death" its the quiet, contemplative second track. Hull builds a great character and story throughout the albums. The captain has decided to take action against his former family and must now pay the consequences. Find out what happens for yourself here.

FREE MP3: Lee Fields - "You're The Kind Of Girl"
Lee Fields
Hey there, soul lovers. Go back to the future with me for today’s free download from Lee Fields & the Expressions. While new artists like Mayer Hawthorne, Fitz & the Tantrums, and Nick Waterhouse are trying to replicate the retro soul sound, Mr. Fields has never stopped creating it. Fields has been making music since the '60s, apparently just patiently waiting and perfecting his sound for the right time. Sorry to keep you waiting, Lee! We're ready for you now. Download his spectacularly smooth song "You're The Kind Of Girl" for free from his latest album, Faithful Man, right here. It's a special track for that special someone...so turn the lights down a bit, and get cozy with Lee.

FREE DOWNLOAD: Juniper Tar
Juniper Tar
Today's free download arrives from a Milwaukee-based group known as Juniper Tar. This fine group of gentlemen just released a new album last week titled Since Before. To help you get familiar, Juniper has put up their last two releases on bandcamp at the lovely "name your price" option (isn't the internet great?). Try to resist the harmonies of "Interstates" from 2010's The Howl Street EP here. You like that? Then you'll definitely dig "The Mouths of Fields" from 2008's To The Trees here. Those vocal harmonies are making Fleet Foxes nervous, I can tell. So get settled in, and start exploring their catalog, so that you can hop over & scoop up Since Before. For a quick taste of the new album (and something a little more rowdy), skip to track 6 for their current single, "After The Tremors."

FREE MP3: Deer Tick - "Born At Zero"
Deer Tick is rock ‘n roll. They just released their fourth album, Divine Providence, last year, and more recently, an EP titled Tim. Led by the enjoyably scruffy John McCauley (who is also in the indie folk rock supergroup Middle Brother, which features members of Dawes and Delta Spirit), Deer Tick employs a rough-n-rowdy alt-country vibe, perfect for a Midwest summer.  Try out their raucous sound by downloading "Born At Zero" (from their EP Tim) for free on their website - you'll find it beneath the patriotic tour dates. Before you graze past those tour dates, you'll want to take note of their Madison date at the Majestic Theatre this Friday, June 8th!

World's Worst iPod: Brighter Side of Darkness "Love Jones"
