23 This Year: The SUB POP Amazon Sampler FREE!

23 This Year: The Sub Pop Amazon Sampler

Sub Pop Records is a Seattle based pretty successful record company with many band names on their web site. This free mp3 sampler is 23 bands on 23 tracks.

Track 1 Fleet Foxes with Helplessness Blues. Meaningful strong vocal over quickly frantic acoustic guitar. Kicks in a bit of bass stays consistent, great song.

Amor Fati by Washed Out(Ernest Greene)up next. Alternative rock track hollow vocal over straight forward music. Nothing fancy good track.

Vetiver playing Wonder Why is next. Mellow easy listening indie song that cruises along behind male lyric and simple backing sounds. Nice.

Track 4 is The Head And The Heart playing Lost In My Mind. Quiet male vocal over guitar and subdued band, nice lyrics, cool ohooohohing vocalist kicks it up a notch on very nice folky/indie song.

Fruit Bats (Eric D. Johnson) bring us Tangie and Ray. Different vocal on peppy song that changes enough to keep our interest. Nice Indie Pop song.

Track 6 is by Aureilo singing Tio Sam. Very cool African Caribbean sound behind neat clear lead vocal, drums and backing singers. Like it a lot.

The Fox is by Niki & The Dove. Two person band from Sweden. Cool Alternative track nothing boring a little messy but you will keep listening to the active strong female vocal. Very nice.

Mogwai bring us Rano Pano. Great distorted guitar opening slowly builds with drums and what could be atomic Kazoos. Remains an instrumental track that maintains it's slightly threatening undertone, you will keep listening. Like it.

Track 9 is Shabazz Palaces with Swerve...the reeping of all that is worthwhile (Noir not withstanding). Male and female Rap vocals over electro/techno noises.

Still Corners with Endless Summer bring us back to music. Hollow dreamy female vocal over mixture of synthesizer sounds that get stronger as we progress then it's over.

Chad Vangaalen with Peace On The Rise is next. Hollow male vocal plodding along behind bad production and simplistic instruments. Predictable Indie song.

Track 12 is Not Enough from J Mascis. Another great singer songwriter in your ears vocal over acoustic guitar and other singers. Very folky very nice.

Rebound from Sebadoh. Raccous opening (very refreshing) gives way to lone singer over classic sounding 3 piece band. Cruises along w/nice California garage band sound. Track is over way too soon.

Next up Orbits playing You Gotta Lose. Equally cool opening up beat band
and intense singer. Punky sound great song.

Track 15 is He Gets Me High by Dum Dum Girls. I love the Dum Dum Girls. Similar great Pop/punky sound to their songs this is no exception. Slightly distorted sound great smart song.

Handsome Furs bring us Repatriated. Strong New Wave sound and 80's vocal. Pulsing dance beat behind much more. Cruises along nicely, echoes of the 80's it's all good on this great song.

The Twilight Singers are next with On The Corner. Very good rock song, superior intro, strong sound, cool vocal. Band and singer grow and stretch as the song expands, keeps getting bigger this is a brilliant song. Even has cool fade to end.

Number 18 is Papercuts with Do You Really Wanna Know. Dreamy hollow vocal over straining band. Song soars and cruises stays the same, pretty good Dream Pop.

Mister Heavenly is the band Bronx Sniper is the song. Pretty cool strong rock band sound after trick quiet opening. Great vocal rowdy band very deliberate and calculated sound that rocks. Love it.

Track 20 is Male Bonding with Bones. Any rapid playing guitar fade in to a song is a good start. Weird Motorhead lyrical flashback (It's all the same to me) as the singer starts however the dreamy vocal over frantic distorted guitar and simple drums soon take over. At 6 and half minutes song starts to age, these guys maintain a beat and rock on through. Like it.

Avi Buffalo with How Come? is next. Cool thumping bass behind new female vocal and messy music. Actually stays interesting and sounds pretty good. Initially I thought they were Pomplamoose (from Hyundai Christmas TV ad) they are not. Nice song.

Especially Me from Low is next. Song opens with a well used line (Cry me a river) quickly goes it's own way with very nice female vocal over strengthening band in the back ground. Very cool 5 and half minutes of superior vocal and band. This is a very well produced quality song.

Last track is Daniel Martin Moore with O My Soul. We close with initially mellow male vocal over controlled acoustic guitar, song quickly becomes stronger and better. High quality singer songwriter number to end a very high quality mp3 download from Amazon.

This 23 track free sampler starts well and never looks back. A superior collection of very talented musicians. Every track adds something to the sampler. Production is mostly very good, content is superior, overall this is a great sampler. A neat mix of mostly Indie, Alternative and Folk sometimes on the same song.

I strongly suggest you download now, recent Amazon samplers have quickly become for sale or been withdrawn. I cannot imagine this collection will be free for long and I'd be surprised if you delete many tracks.

point. You obviously know what youre talking about, why throw
away your intelligence on just posting videos to your site when you
could be giving us something informative to read?
