Today’s free mp3 (via Amazon) is the song “Gather” by Jay Farrar.
The song is part of a free album, Bloodshot Records Spring Cleaning Sampler. You can get the whole album, but I’m just pimping the Farrar.
If you’ve never heard of him, he’s the lead force behind Son Volt. If you’ve never heard of Son Volt, well here’s as good a chance as any, because Farrar’s solo stuff sounds like the slower Son Volt stuff.
The song, “Gather,” was also part of the soundtrack for the independent movie The Slaughter Rule.
If you’ve never heard of The Slaughter Rule, it starred that guy from Lars and the Real Girl and you can sometimes find it on IF. But hearing about the movie has little or nothing to do with listening to the music.
It’s just an added freebie. Like the download.
