Free Download: "Mrs. Marquis de Sade" by Cloud Room
Artist: Cloud Room (Facebook)
Song: "Mrs. Marquis de Sade"
Album: You Be My Heart

"I had a been in a bit of a songwriting lull around the time I penned this song, and if I remember correctly, it was The Killers' 'Read My Mind' which prompted me to pick the pen back up again," Devon Reed tells Rolling Stone. "That song just turned into one of those earmites I couldn't get rid of, and sometimes I find the only way to get a song unstuck from my head is to put together some sort of musical response to it. I was thrilled when The Cloud Room opted to record the song, since I'd been a fan of theirs for a while and thought they were a perfect fit for it."

Free Download: "Broke, Not Broken"

Artist: Jamie Kent (Facebook)
Song: "Broke, Not Broken"
Album: Embers & Ashes

"I would be lying if I said 'Broke, Not Broken' wasn't inspired a bit by my life," Jamie Kent tells Rolling Stone. "That said, I wrote this as sort of an anthem to anyone chasing down their dream every day. I wanted to let people know that there's plenty of us out there, and we can all help each other take things to the next level."

Free Download: "In the Wilderness" by Those Darlins
Artist: Those Darlins (Facebook)
Song: "In the Wilderness"
Album: Blur the Line

"I started writing this song with Jessi in the woods of Kentucky in 2010. I was on quite a roller coaster then, dealing with the ups, and downs, and trying to make sense of the relationships I was in," Nikki Kvarnes tells Rolling Stone. "I seriously broke my arm shortly after and was left with a lot of time to reflect. 'In the Wilderness' is about the desire to embrace the mystery of the intangible."

Free Download: "Flowers in My Teeth" by Mansions
Artist: Mansions (Facebook)
Song: "Flowers in My Teeth"
Album: Doom Loop

"'Flowers in My Teeth' is probably the closest I'll ever come to writing a song about being happy and having fun," Christopher Browder tells Rolling Stone. "It was the last song written for the record, which meant we were up for anything. Whisper vocals, bonehead synth bass, and a nature sound breakdown suddenly felt like good ideas. All that wirdness somehow led to it being my favorite song on the record."

Free Download: "Dracula's Daughter" by Beach Day
Artist: Beach Day (Facebook)
Song: "Dracula's Daughter"
Album: Trip Trap Attack


"I wanted to record a Halloween song but didn't want to do something too obvious," Kimmy Drake tells Rolling Stone. "Our drummer is mildly obsessed with horror garage music icon Screaming Lord Sutch, and when I cound footage of Joe Meek and Sutch actually recording 'Dracula's Daughter,' we both became enthralled with the idea of covering the song."

Free Download: "Since Jimmy Came" by Shonna Tucker & Eye Candy
Artist: Shonna Tucker & Eye Candy (Facebook)
Song: "Since Jimmy Came"
Album: A Tell All

"We recorded 'Since Jimmy Came' with Kyle Spence in Athens, GA," Shonna Tucker tells Rolling Stone. I think with my Southern drawl, we kep the "country" without trying to hard. The vocal harmonies were fun to work out. And who doesn't love a singing drummer? This is the most fun song to play live for me."

Free Download: "Kinda Go To Pieces" by Matt Pryor
Artist: Matt Pryor (Matt Pryor Facebook)
Song: "Kinda Go To Pieces"
Album: Wrist Slitter

"It's a weird roller coaster, this job," Matt Pryor (of The Get Up Kids) tells Rolling Stone. "When you're onstage its a dizzying high, and when you're in your hotel, thousands of miles away from your family, reading negative tweets, it's the pits. So, consequently, you feel like an asshole if you complain about your job. That's what the song is about. It's a very personal and honest self-reflection in which I give myself permission to be burnt out."

Artist: Echosmith (Echosmith's Facebook)
Song: "Tell Her You Love Her"
Album: Talking Dreams

"This song really resonates with us," Sydney Sierota tells Rolling Stone. "It's an outside perspective on a relationship, and a reminder to never forget to let the person you really love know that. We all need a reminder sometimes."

Artist: Parade of Lights
Song: "We're The Kids"
Album: We're The Kids (Single)

“We’re The Kids is a song about being young, and the carefree feeling that comes along with it."  Even if you aren’t a kid anymore, you can still feel like you did when you were 15. You just have to let yourself."

Free Download: Post Louis "Your Hotel"
Artist: Post Louis
Song: "Your Hotel"
Album: This Could Be A Bridge (EP)

"While writing we caught sight of a book called Social Causes of Illness by Richard Totman," Stephanie Davin tells Rolling Stone. "This is the origin of the words shouted in the middle of the song: 'You have faith in your bones when you go, 'cause your illness is socially caused in your hotel.' It’s everyone’s favorite to play live."
