ToddZero is giving away his new album, Kid Heart, over at Noisetrade. Not sure how long this will be up for free because it will be seeing an official release on June 4th through Hembot Recordings. I really enjoyed his first EP and this album shows great growth in his music. Building on what he did so well with his indie rock sound he also integrates some electronic elements/synth into this album. I highly recommend getting this album. Fantastic indie rock music! Positive Christian message.
ToddZero has recently moved his website as well as his Facebook page using ToddZero as his name instead of Todd0. Which is odd because I always thought it was ToddO, as in the letter O. Anyways you can find his new website here www.toddzero.com and new Facebook page here ToddZero.

Download the debut album from Josh White's new project, Pilgrim, for free over at Noisetrade. The self-titled album is said to be a soundtrack to his youth, the album feeds off of his love of many different musical styles including but not limited to glam, new wave, and trip-hop. They say it better than I could, "It's as if Roxy Music merged with New Order, and was remixed by Massive Attack."
I have never really followed Josh White, but after listening to this album and realizing he is the brains behind The Followers as well I feel the need to check into his other projects that he has been involved in. These would include two solo albums as well as three albums with his former band Telecast. If you have not heard his stuff with The Followers you can download their album for free as well here The Follwers – Wounded Healer. (I would highly recommend it)

I fell in love with Josh Garrels' music when he gave away his last release Love & War & The Sea In Between for free. After that I ended up buying his album Jacaranda but never got around to buying the rest. This was a great opportunity to get the rest of his music and help a great cause. Read the rest of this entry

The extremely popular Christian site Jesus Freak Hideout has released it's first compilation album, and are giving it away for free. The album called, Songs We've Been Trying To Tell You About (And Others We Haven't) Volume One, is a compilation of mostly independent artists that they enjoy and think you need to hear. There are also some fairly well know bands on it such as Family Force 5, The O.C. Supertones, and Kids In The Way.
Most of the music is in the rock genre whether it be pop rock, hard rock, folk rock……. There is a handful of hip-hop/rap and electronic artists on it as well. If you are a metal fan there is not much for you here Fallstar's song Hunters I believe is the only song on here for you and it falls more in the hardcore category. I also noticed that the compilation is for the most part male dominated there are very few females represented on the album. Read the rest of this entry
