Free For All: Bandshell

Times are tough out there, and for many of us buying music has become quite an indulgence (albeit a necessary one). Happily, there are some lovely musician folk out there that have offered up some fruits of their labors to the masses, free of charge. Free For All celebrates these wonderful people, and you, dear reader types.

A little while back I received an email from teaandcakerecords, within which was a link to listen to a new release of theirs by a mysterious entity called Bandshell. I was intrigued, and as soon as I saw the record cover, a ghoulish gentleman in Western garb, I was hooked. And that was before I even began to listen to the music, friends.

Now, I proffer to you that when it comes to the various types of electronic music, I am woefully underinformed, mostly because it's usually not, to stick with the theme, my cup of tea. I don't know my dubstep from my trance from my leftfield...you get the idea. But even with that being said, there was something about Bandshell that drew me in, simple as that. There's a hypnotic, though rather sinister tilt to these songs, and somewhere amidst the chilly, almost unfriendly rhythms a force that pulls you in, claws at you with ghostly fingers and whispers dark seductions in your disoriented ear.

Curious? You certainly should be. Go here now to experience Bandshell for yourself.
