Ed Tullett – free & legal download here
He got in touch with me through tumblr so I checked his music out through the above link. If you like Bon Iver, you’ll like Ed Tullett. The music is definitely his own style; he described it as “falsetto/harmony rich acoustic stuff, with some banjo and other stuff thrown in”. Really you should totally check it out. It’s good. It’s free. It’s legal. Win win win.

Last.fm suggested her to me and I’m all for getting free new music so I had a listen. She’s really good. What I’ve listened to seems to be almost exclusively acoustic guitar and singing, and her accompaniments are perfect for the songs.
Throwing them in here because they deserve more recognition. “Lisztomania” and “1901” are their most popular songs and rightly so, they are great songs. But “Love For Granted” is so beautiful and lovely; it is incredibly underrated. Phoenix is one of my favourite bands. It’d make me really happy if I found others who loved them as much as I do.
