Free For All: The Seventeenth Century
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.
On occasion, concept recordings can be pretty dang awesome. Mind you, it has to be something pretty special to get my attention (and keep it). When it's a Glaswegian indie folk band making the concept songs, well, that certainly sweetens the pot as far as I'm concerned. The Seventeenth Century is offering up a pair of freebies charmingly entitled Two Dutch Masters, with good reason. Please refer to their Bandcamp page for the full details, full of radio tomfoolery and museum hijinks. There's plenty of pretty folktasticness to go around in these two songs, and it's not exactly venturing out on a limb to say that I'm beginning to fall in smit with The Seventeenth Century. Have a listen for yourself, and make sure to nab both songs. You'll probably thank me.
