Ten free and legal downloads or streams sure to strike the ear of the cash strapped college student.
1. Various artists: Bonnaroo 2010 sampler
Just in time for this weekend's Bonnaroo blowout in Manchester, Tenn., fans of jam bands, classic rock, indie associations and just about everything else under the sun can devour this extensive taste test. Though it's a lengthy list to sift through, don't miss dance act Phoenix's "1901," garage rockers' Tokyo Police Club's "Juno (Ra Ra Riot Remix)," the rootsy Calexico's "Two Silver Trees" and funk favorites Galactic (teaming with soul siren Irma Thomas) on "Heart of Steel."
2. Jakob Dylan and Three Legs: Interface Session
Between a successful stint as The Wallflowers singer, not to mention being the son of Bob Dylan, Jakob Dyklan (pictured) has lots to be thankful for. This live Interface video stream is amongst the series' most momentous to date. Add in band members that include Neko Case (of New Pornographers fame) and the always-outspoken Kelly Hogan, and there's plenty of alternative country innovation throughout this unplugged and intimate concert excursion.
