Solicitations! I love 'em!
Right, so in the past week 2 different bands/artists emailed me with samples, imploring me to share with all of you. So I'm gonna! (stay tuned for tommorrow's post, which is a mix of songs suitable for quiet nights)
First Up: Soft
Brand new band sent me an email asking for a review, so here it is: I like them a lot actually. Keep in mind these are their first four songs really put up for scrutiny, but I like em. Especially "Droppin". I can't really name bands that remind me of them, because a) I don't like comparisons and b) I suck at comparisons. All I can say is that I recommend them. Take that as positive hype for them! Key tracks to get: Droppin, All that Your Shown
You can download their mp3s directly here
Soft's official site
Second round: Todd Stadtman
Mr. Stadtman has already been getting some early praise from some magazines and other news sources, and here are my two cents: while I really really really like the bubblegum electro pop that is "Clock in my Heart", I just don't dig the other tracks up for download. Sorry man, just not my thing. But, that's just one man's opinion. So make your own!
Here's his official download page
And his site
Thank you both of you for the offer, and I'm always up for free music sharing!
spread the word about soft. you'll love them.
