“Ghost” by This Is Water – A Song Review

     This Is Water is a band based in Gothenburg, Sweden. We are fans of the track “Ghost” and posting it today seemed appropriated, since the vocals have characteristics similar to those of Bono. Tickets for the U2 eXPERIENCE + iNNOCENCE tour hit the general public today.

“Fade (ft. Hunting Stories)” by Kidswaste – A Song Review

     “Fade” is an Electronic vibe interspersed with Lumineers-type band shouts of “Hey!” The single is the product of a union between producer Kidswaste (also known as Quentin Beauvois) and Hunting Stories. 
     Hunting Stories are Rafael Sanchez (vocals, banjo, piano), Jose Sanchez (vocals, guitar), James D'Amico (bass), and Didrik Soderstrom (vocals, percussion).

Lyrics of “Fade (ft. Hunting Stories)” by Kidswaste
Come on, love
Say what you want to me
It's plain to see
It's plain to see

That there are words
That we want to reach
They're plain to speak
They're plain to speak

So say what you mean to say
And I will start to fade
Erase the lines that we won't need
So just say what you mean
Yeah, say what you mean to say

Darling, all you need
(Hey!)
Is all I need
(Hey!)
Darling, all you need
(Hey!)
Is all I need
(Hey!)

I know it hurts
Yeah, I know the way
He crushed you whole
You took that weight

Well, love is here
Hence, you’re love will be
It's plain to see
It's plain to see

So say what you mean to say
And I will start to fade
Erase the lines that we won't need
So say what you mean
Yeah, say what you mean

Darling, all you need
(Hey!)
Is all I need
(Hey!)
Darling, all you need
(Hey!)
Is all I need
(Hey!)

“Cool” by The Hunter Express - Free Friday (“FL&R”)

     Free and Legal Downloads? Yes, at least temporarily. Bands often temporarily permit free downloads of their releases.  The end of an offer may be based on the expiration of a set period of time or on a limited number of downloads.  But at least for now, here is a song that qualifies as a Free, Legal and Recommended (FL&R) download.
     Finding songs that can be legally downloaded is easy. The difficult task is to find legally downloadable music that we recommend. Our plan is to post at least one FL&R song each Friday. 
     “Cool” is a track that we enjoyed during the first listen, but could not have predicted that the song would come to populate so many of our playlists. The unconventionality of the lead vocals is appealing when it stands alone, then ideal when combined with the backing vocals. The guitars don’t demand attention; over time, the realization is that they deserve it.

     The Hunter Express is an indie rock/folk project by Melbourne singer/songwriter Brad Ellis. Emerging out of Melbourne's vibrant indie folk scene, his first single, "Home," received airplay on independent stations around Australia. This December, Ellis releases his self titled debut LP. The LP expands on Ellis' collective sound, driven by his distinctive vocals and storytelling manner. The Triple J information about the project lists other contributors - Troy Downward, Juman Rahmi, Jarrad Brown, Tyler Campbell, Olaf Scott, and Matt Dixon.
