Once every four weeks I will search through the free downloads for a particular genre and find some tracks that I fancy listening to. (Luckily, there are exactly 26 genres on their list, so it will take me a couple of years to get through them all.)Then I'll spend some time whittling this list down to five, that will be recommended for your listening pleasure. (I'll put a link on each band name that will take you automatically to the Last.fm page so that you can partake in further research, if you can really be bothered.) Some of the artists may have produced albums and some may have only recorded one song. They will be chosen purely on the strength of the track that I've downloaded. You never know, we may discover the next Karl Denver.
So, to kick us off, I delved into the Acoustic section. These are my findings (in no particular order):
1. This Girl - She Tells Lies - The Beautiful Confusion.
2. It's You - Sundae Sunday - It's You (Single)
3. Mindbreak - Flume
4. Broken Dreams - Sloppy Folk - Some Anti-Folk...
5. Suburban Hymn - Alp - Alp
