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: Exile "Kiss You All Over"
Kitty thought this song was an example of country disco and was not a fan...but just about everybody else was. "Kiss You All Over" was #1 for four weeks in 1978, and was probably one of the year's best songs. Exile rocks out with the song here...

The next Jonny Lang? Quinn Sullivan is the real deal
I was up in Wausau for the Big Bull Falls Blues Fest, and had a great time watching all the great live music. The big surprise of the day was the guy who played at 3pm. He's just 15 years old and is a good friend of Buddy Guy, and even got to play...

World's Worst iPod: Young MC "Bust a Move"
Kitty apppeared to be all alone on her dislike of this song, which made it to #7 on the charts in 1989. Rolling Stone described the song this way: "a G-rated funk-bomb integral to hip-hop's eventual mainstream acceptance." The G-rating probably...

World's Worst iPod: Hall & Oates "Method of Modern Love"
Hall & Oates had a lot of great hits in the 1970s and 1980s, and if you believe a lot of folks, this is NOT one of them! This song with its amazing spelling lesson hook made it all the way to #5 on the charts in February of 1985. We're a...

Will this be Clapton's last record?
Eric Clapton definitely has retirement in mind. He hinted to Rolling Stone recently that he may quit touring and recording, and only play for family and friends. We can look forward to at least one more new Clapton record before he hangs up his Strat...
