Why you need to know about Daytrotter.com

2 Jul

I’m going to let everyone in on a little secret and all because of my love for music.  If you have never heard of Daytrotter.com I highly encourage you to visit the site after reading this.

One day a while back I stumbled upon Daytrotter.com and thought it was the greatest site for music. I could listen to some of my favorite bands play wicked awesome, stripped down versions of their songs.  Of course I also learned of some new bands (like today, Sporting Life) and to this day I am always up for discovering as many new bands on the site as bands I love.  Even better, besides just popping them in a queue and listening, you can also download the sessions.

The site use to be free but now charges a $24 annual fee and at DoYouHearTheMusic.com we have zero problem paying this. We’re talking $2 a month people!  For access to some incredible music and surely material you won’t find anywhere else, this is a no brainer.  Added bonus, visit the site by tomorrow and sign up for an annual membership and you can get your hands on a limited edition vinyl of The Lumineers and Civil Wars sessions for FREE.  They are only printing as many as records as ordered so once they go to print, that’s it!

Here’s another reason why you should be all about Daytrotter, follow Sean on Twitter @realdaytrotter and you’ll be opened up to some super dope music and be the first to know of some upcoming sessions on the site.

And tune in July 4 where you can stream the  Barn on the 4th show with the Counting Crows!

So there you have it, one of my favorite sites to discover new music.   You are now in the know.



NEWS: Maroon 5 and Foster The People to Perform with The Beach Boys at the GRAMMY Awards

9 Feb

Check out THIS story from Paste Magazine about the Beach Boys upcoming performance at the GRAMMY Awards on February 12 with Maroon 5 and Foster The People.

I don’t anticipate it being quite like The Avett Brothers and Mumford & Sons with Bob Dylan last year but it should be pretty cool nonetheless.  Looking forward to it for sure.

Also looking forward to performances by Maceo Parker, The Civil Wars and Joe Walsh.
