Free Albums (or EPs) - Brass Tactics

I quite liked my idea of putting up free albums and was surprised by how many good ones there were. But like lots of things it kinda fell of the radar a bit. Here's an EP that David Byrne and St Vincent put out after their tour together. 

It's got an outtake from the album, two remixes and two live tracks. Worth the download just for the recording of Road to Nowhere.

Counting Crows - Sydney Opera House, 10 April 2013

The Sydney Opera House has been recording some shows and streaming them via youtube. This is a bit old, but it's a good show. I only really know the hits, but the other songs they play are really good. I missed their Melbourne show because I was touring round following Wilco. Based on this show, if they make a return visit I'll definitely be attending.!tJ9DQCxC!dh96DhrLr1Uc50_8EoBpZg

The Hives - Les Vieilles Charrues, 18 July 2013

I was going to put this up in advance of the Big Day Out, but I never got round to it. Given how often they tour here they might well make a return visit before the end of the year (which wouldn't be a bad thing).

Adam McGrath

Here are two solo shows by the lead singer of a band you've never heard of. I don't even really know why I put this up, since I suspect I'm the only person that will enjoy these (actually, lots of people should enjoy Adam McGrath/The Eastern, but they just don't seem to get the exposure - these were free shows, and by the end of it, people that had just come for a drink were fans, I really really don't know why he/they aren't bigger).

These shows featured a bunch of covers, plus some Eastern songs. I don't know what they all were, so a couple of these are marked as unknown. Leave a comment if you can help.

If you like these, he mentioned there would be a full band tour 'in spring'. They're currently doing a big European tour, so maybe on their way back?
