Free .mp3 from Rhett Miller
The Old 97s are coming to Madison October 17th, for a show that's a RHETTrospective, so to speak.

 The show marks the 15th anniversary of their major label debut Too Far To Care, and they'll be doing that album in its entirety at the show at the Capitol Theatre, followed by a bonus set of other fan favorites.

Rhett Miller of the Old 97s is reminiscing about the songs on his website, and he's also offering a free download, in exchange for your email address.

It's an acoustic version of the song "Out of Love " from Rhett's 5th album, The Dreamer, which came out earlier this year.

New sound for ex-Chili Peppers guitarist
A lot of Red Hot Chili Peppers fans were disappointed when guitar player John Frusciante left the band a couple of years ago.

Well, he's now doing his own thing...and if you expect it to sound anything like the Chili Peppers, you'll likely be disappointed.

He's taking a more electronic turn with his music, which you'll hear on his new album, PBX Funicular Intaglio Zone.  It comes out September 25th, but he's offering a free download of a song from the album on his website now.

Frusciante says the song marks the point at which he began combining 60s and early 70s production styles with modern electronic production styles. According to Frusciante:  "This song was also the first time I successfully balanced pop music with abstract forms of music."

Abstract is right.

Check out the tune on this video.  It's a far cry from the straight ahead rock and roll of his last band.

You can download the song here.

Free song from the Wallflowers
This isn't the Wallflowers of "Sixth Avenue Heartache," or "One Headlight."

"Reboot the Mission," the first single from the Wallflowers upcoming album "Glad All Over" was inspired by the Clash, and Wallflowers frontman Jakob Dylan told Rolling Stone it just made sense to call on Mick Jones from the British punk band to take part. Jones plays guitar and sings on the song.

The song has a bit of a reggae shuffle/punk feel reminiscent of the Clash, and even mentions the late Joe Strummer in the lyrics.

What will the rest of the album be like? We'll have to wait until October 2nd when it's released on Columbia Records. In the meantime, the band is offering a free download in exchange for your email address.

Get the free download here.
