NOTHING WRONG WITH FREE MUSIC


Today on the World Cafe

Ray Lamontagne is back with his third album since his stunning 2004 debut Trouble. Gossip In The Grain fully utilizes Ray's band and they are here to play live. And you, oh fortunate newsletter receiver, can have the first song we'll get to, "Hey Me, Hey Mama" as a free newsletter-exclusive download. Head here and make it your own!

We'll also play you one from the Menahan Street Band, a Brooklyn aggregation that is part of Daptone Records along with Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings. There was a great article about Gabriel Roth and his label in this Sunday's New York Times.

And we have a new single from Lily Allen. Here's the video.

Plus our Top 5, sent in by a listener in Boston, is all Australian this time around. Maybe it will make you think of HBO's new comedy series, which became a hit Down Under a year ago. Make sure you give us your top 5 at our website (where your friends can also sign up for this newsletter and get free downloads too)!

With your help we shall reach the 5,000 subscriber mark by year-end. We have 200 to go. So, pass this email on to a well-deserving friend.
