The "Kitchen Cowboys" are a group of German musicians from Hamburg. They sing "songs of love and songs of pain, everywhere where you can find power sockets" (translation by me). "Someone, someday" is a great, mellow, acoustic song from them, English lyrics are available.
I asked them whether they want to release their songs under a Creative Commons license and they were kind enough to say yes! Thanks a lot guys!
Just the right thing today: "Jingle Bells", adapted and performed by Natalie Brown.
Merry Christmas everyone!
(btw, I have compiled a list of many more Creative Commons Christmas songs, if you're interested)
"Indie pop? Folk rock? Americana? Geez, who cares?" I don't. And you shouldn't either. Just enjoy Scott Andrew's "American Thing" without worrying about the music genre.
Sun Palace (a project of singer/songwriter Andriette Redmann) has released a new CD called "Give Me a Perfect World" on magnatune.com. All songs are licensed under a Creative Commons license. You can buy the songs, either from Magnatune or from the artists website.
The first song on the album (also titled "Give Me a Perfect World") is a beautiful, dreamy, almost magical piece of great music. Enjoy!
Here is one (very funny) song out of many, many more which Jonathan Coulton has made available under a Creative Commons license. "Betty and Me" is a great, hilarious song. Pay close attention to the lyrics ;-)
If you like the songs, please consider buying one of Jonathan's CDs. He also has a nice campaign up currently:
This is sort of a protest - I will write and record one song a week and post it on Friday from now until someone starts paying me to do it. I guess technically then I will need to keep doing it, but you see what I’m saying. None of these are on a CD yet, so if you like them and you want more, please donate to me whatever you think is fair so I can keep doing them.
