Welcome to my first Free Music Friday post, where I’ll be highlighting the free music I’ve managed to acquire, legitimately I hasten to add, from my various sources. Being a music fan can be quite an expensive business, so any free music is most welcome, especially if it introduces me to some new artists. So enough of my waffle, onto the music.
My first collection came from Kscope, which I came across following a recommendation from a member of the Big Big Train Facebook group to which I belong.
Featuring music from North Atlantic Oscillation, ENGINEERS (Official Page),Se Delan, Nordic Giants, Anathema, Lunatic Soul – official, The Pineapple Thief, Gazpacho Official (the Norwegian band), Iamthemorning, Steven Wilson
Having listened to the album, my favourite track is Cold by Lunatic Soul, but they’re all well worth a listen. Just to illustrate my point about sample albums such as this introducing you to new music, of the ten artists on the album, Steven Wilson is the only one I have in my music collection. Earlier this year I purchased the excellent The Raven That Refused to Sing.
The Steven Wilson track featured on this collection is his version of Abba‘s The Day Before You Came, which is somewhat different to the original, to say the least.
