Daytrotter, its where all the cool kids go
I don't really know why its taken me so long to post about this awesome website, maybe because i wanted to see if they could keep up the brilliant writing that consistently gets put up there or to see if they could keep getting these new and great bands to do sessions tracks for them, which get uploaded each monday, so the week starts on a high, with rare, live performances from some superb acts. So far they've had Hockey Night, Casiotone For The Painfully Alone, (my fav) Harry And The Potters and this week's guests Two Gallants in their studio to perform 4 special tracks for the eager listener to peruse and download, all completely free. Rumours are that Cursive, Ben Kweller, Bonnie Prince Billy, Smoosh, Grizzly Bear and The Futureheads, to name but a few, will venture to the Daytrotter studios in the near future to lay down some rare and probably unreleased tracks, so keep an eye, and ear, on it. You wouldn't wanna miss out, would you? Here's a few sessions from the past few weeks that i've enjoyed and if you like these, head on over there to pick up the rest and much, much more.
