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!

Kitty's night in a haunted house
Before Friday, my only experience with a haunted house, commercial or otherwise, was at the Recreation Department in Stevens Point when I was a teenager, and as I remember I was FREAKED out. So I was a little nervous when Jonathan and I were asked to...

World's Worst iPod: El DeBarge "Who's Johnny"
A lot of people seemed to have fond memories of this questionable song from 1986. "Who's Johnny" was the first solo hit for the guy named El DeBarge, and it went to number 3 on the charts. Some of you might remember it from the movie "Short...

Finally, recognition of Stevie Ray Vaughan by the Rock Hall

You might want to see "Once" twice
I had the opportunity to go see "Once" at Overture Hall last night, and I guess the two word summary of my review could be "weirdly awesome." The story isn't too complicated, which is good because I sometimes had a hard time understanding the...

World's Worst iPod: Stonebolt "I Will Still Love You"
It seems Kitty was all alone in the Canadian wilderness with her love for the 1978 hit "I Will Still Love You" by Stonebolt. It only made it up to #29, so it seems a lot of folks didn't have the fond memories of the song that she did. With amazing...

World's Worst iPod: Neil Diamond "Yesterday's Songs"
Even Neil Diamond fans didn't seem to want to throw their support behind this one. "Yesterday's Songs" with its cheesy backup singers may be the most cliche song the guy does! It made it up to #11 on the charts in 1981/82 and was #1 on the...

In honor of National Punctuation Day
Today is National Punctuation Day! It's a day to geek out about exclamation points, semi-colons, ampersands and commas. It's also a day to go back into the Radio Way-Back Machine, and listen to this song by Dan Baird. It was a minor hit in...
