Music: Do you Daytrot?

Originally uploaded by

The good, indie music loving folks over at offer something not many music Web sites can: exclusive, unreleased tracks by great musical artists.

Daytrotter invites traveling musicians to its recording studio in Rock Island, Ill., to record four songs exclusively for the site. They post the songs for all to download for free. Daytrotter also posts reviews, features and inteviews with the bands and great illustrations (like the one of Elf Power posted above).

So far, Daytrotter has recorded the likes of Mates of State, Elf Power, Shearwater, Of Montreal, Sound Team, Cold War Kids, Bonnie Prince Billy and tone more.

Here’s a link to Mates of State’s cover of Nico’s “These Days” recorded for Daytrotter.
