Free Download: "Waking Up To You" by John The Conqueror

Artist: John The Conqueror
Song: "Waking Up To You"
Album: The Good Life

"As folks get older, they begin to see the mistakes they've made," Pierre Moore tells Rolling Stone. "This song isn't about one woman. It's about every relationship I've ruined because I thought sleeping around would make me happy. A few years go, I woke up realizing that I was never satisfied and I caused all my own problems. This song is about that moment."

A different Beatle-versary

Everybody's talking about the upcoming 50th anniversary of the Beatles' landmark performance on the Ed Sullivan Show comin gup in a little over a week.

Today is a different Beatle anniversary. It was on today's date in 1969 that the Beatles gave their final live performance, on the rooftop of Apple Records, at 3 Savile Row in London.

There is so much to love about the 42 minute set of music!  Including--

George's lime green pants
Ringo's shiny raincoat
John's guitar that needs a haircut 
Billy Preston jamming on the keys
Paul's voice at its rockingest


But did you know the rooftop concert almost didn't happen? Well, anyway it wasn't the band's first choice. They wanted to do it on some kind of ship out on the ocean but realized that would cause logistical problems, and chose to go up on the roof instead.

"I'd like to thank you on behalf of the group and ourselves, and I hope we've passed the audition."  - John Lennon

Free Download: "Warm Winds" by Outlands

Artist: Outlands
Song: "Warm Winds"
Album: Love is as Cold as Death

"We recorded 'Warm Winds' in the middle of a cold Virginia winter," Mark Arciaga tells Rolling Stone. "It's about letting love be the catalyst to move forward. The song was written about these lush Cocteau Twins piano chords, which we ended up reworking and recording on a grand piano to give the song more warmth, and we brought it our friend Kevin Knight to sing some sexy lower background vocals. Those Jessie Ware-inspired harmonies are what really gives that song an extra layer of sensuousness."
