From next monday I'm going to be launching the Counterglow free mp3 of the week series. The idea is that I'll link to a cool and or interesting mp3 for your enjoyment. If anyone has any suggestions for future weeks please PM them to me. I can't guarantee I'll use them all but I will try and make sure I listen to them all.

The MP3 should be freely available for download and I'll be looking for something odd or interesting rather than something like a single by an already well known band.

To give you some idea, here's something Scabrous Birdseed suggested when we first mentioned this idea. It's slightly less topical now than it was but it's still good.

I think I've heard this song before, though I'm not too sure. It's horrible, it's the Stand By Me backing all distorted.

Oh, and good idea. If it's popular maybe you can make it daily :D

I think it's horrible but funny.

Dammit, I am stuck at work with no speakers or mp3 player.
Can you hum it to me?

You just download one at first. It doesn't take long and it sounds good. There are a few more by the same band on the site. You download them as well. Some are better than others... you start wondering what the next one will sound like.

Then one day you find yourself arguing about R&B with Scabby. :(

Goddammit! This is actually a good idea.

I don't know where to get any free MP3's though. At least not "legal" ones.

I haven't listened to this yet but if Snapcase likes it, it must be terrible.

Band's websites, somewhere like mp3.com, other music sites especially local ones.

I don't have broadband, so downloading any MP3 is like watching continental drift.

You just let them download whilst you are surfing something else but point taken. I'll hum any songs I put up for you.

I want to suggest Alien Ant Farm - Wish but I on the band's site there is only a small sample :(

OK there may be some delay in the start of this as we're getting a spiffy new page for it. Cool!

I suggest anything from miserablemelodies.com or perhaps everyone should be made to listen to 'Rock Cliche' again.

Funkodrom

Suggest stuff privately so it can be a surprise. ;)

I'm sure everyone's already heard Rock Cliche a million times... maybe that's just me. We need to get into the studio.

How about before Xmas? would be lovely to record our darkest, most twisted and slow song to celebrate the festive season. When shall I book the recording studio?

We need to check the other guys availability. I'd like to do it ASAP, getting gigs would be a lot easier with a 2 song demo.

Did anyone bother downloading the song?

Hey Mike, perhaps we could do with some more 'funky tunes' from Goatsblood :D
