Switchfoot Bootleg Downloads

Even though Switchfoot's Looking For Summer Tour (with Brynn Elliott and Lifehouse) never made it to New Zealand, you can experience the nights through the magic that is bootleg recordings.

We had a hunch that these were going to be memorable evenings, so we recorded almost every show of the Looking For Summer Tour. A heartfelt thanks to all of you who came out and made these shows so incredible.

Basically, their sound guy hit record for every show, and you can download the raw audio mix for each show for about 10 bucks. I got the Boston one (cos they said it was one of their favourite shows of the tour) and I'm surprised by how good it sounds (it's not mastered like a normal live concert album, remember) so if you want to hear the new Switchfoot stuff live, this should hold you over until they grace our shores again.

BONUS: Check out the live music video for "If The House Burns Down Tonight" from their Los Angeles show.

Gungor has launched the pre-order of their upcoming release One Wild Life: Spirit, which releases March 25. 

The upcoming record features 11 new songs, and is volume two of Gungor's album trilogy titled One Wild Life.

"One Wild Life: Spirit continues the journey to open the heart to wonder," said Lisa. "Sometimes it is easy to feel stuck, to feel alone, to feel hopeless. But these songs are our attempt to bring a sense of belonging and a nudge to remember how magical and meaningful life is."

The third and final record, One Wild Life: Body, will be released later this year.

For a limited time, Gungor is also offering a "season pass" purchase option to instantly download Spirit before it is released to the public.

Noisetrade launches fan accounts

Noisetrade is a beautiful part of the internet where artists from all genres can post music for download, and fans can leave tips to support them. I use it all the time (cos bands usually post b-sides, remixes, or bonus tracks you can't get anywhere else) and now Noisetrade has launced Fan Accounts.

So you can store your downloads, share your favourites, and generally just have a better time getting awesome music - best part, it's free to sign up!

PS My account is if you want to see what I'm listening to!
