To commemorate the label's seven-year anniversary, Paper Bag Records has released covers album, The Seven Year Itch, free to the masses. Included on the 12-track set are the label's most notable acts covering classics from Nirvana, Bob Dylan, Beck and more. It's definitely worth the price of admission (which is nothing, but still), so check out the download over at the label's site, or below.
Animal Noises is a blog about music, both old and new, and how it stands up in the current music scene. The staff-- John, the editor, with contributions from Matt-- uses their various music backgrounds to intelligently discuss artists and albums, focusing on the good, while not avoiding the bad. We focus on sub-genres of rock, electronic music and hip hop, but don't be surprised to see the occasional wildcard too.
