Obscure and free music weekend, a bit of everything





This weeknd I decided to do a bit of research into a few bands who give away their music and here are my favourites

Pope John Paul iii
Pope John Paul iii are a band from California and their innovative folk, lo-fi, tongue in cheek crapcore is well worth a listen. The band members are Adam and Ryan Beebe who claim to record on some of the World's worst recording equipment, hence them wanting to swap their studio for Paul Mc.Cartney's in the song Paul Mc.Cartney's studio. Your guess is as good as mine for the inspiration of the song Booze.

For a selection of free tracks click on the albums at http://www.last.fm/music/Pope+John+Paul+III

dress up like a hooker, i'll be charlie sheen
I don't know much about this band, but their songs are lo-fi classics, with European Soul being my favourite. You can download their album Hi five for lo-fi at http://dulahibcs.bandcamp.com/album/hi-five-for-lo-fi

Harperative
