nail winter sampler
Anyway, I was actually looking for free Christmas music to give to co-workers, mixed in with a few tunes I like. Granted, I have co-workers who love my mixes and well, I feel kind of obligated. Only, they have different listening tendencies.
Of course, this is a sampler I wouldn't give to them because, it might not be what they expect.
Granted, saying all this you are probably so confused now.
Nail winter sampler is made up of alternative bands. This distributor comes out of Portland, Oregon. Naturally. And when I found out that Birthday Massacre had Pins and Needles on it, I thought I'd check it out. My favorite on this ten song compilation would have to be Grave yard's full by the growlers. Now, don't let that put you off. Its really got a nice melody to it. Although I couldn't find it on YOU TUBE. Here's Spider Swamp.
I Won't by Stereo is a Lie is more R.E.M. old school. Here is an interview with the lead singer.
Jen Wood's Morning Light is quite pleasing too. The CD sampler also has two hip-hop tunes by Watchmen and Diwon. Along with some full body rock with Lo-pan's DRAGLINE. It ends with the Deadbeats' Conveyer.
Really, for free music its one of the better ones I've found.
