Daytrotter is a glorious website that is based in Rock Island, IL and through some kind of magic persuasion are able to knab a lot of good bands to record songs. The deal is that the band usually is given the bare minimum to record and the result is a more personal lo fi take on great music. Every so often, Daytrotter gets some unreleased tracks and thus the reason for this post. There has been a great influx of songs that you should have. So go to the website now and go crazy. The most recent ones that I highly recommend are Deer Tick, Fleet Foxes, White Denim, and Death Cab for Cutie. If you want to venture in the beautious archives then go for The Six Parts Seven, Sunset Rubdown, Catfish Haven, Thao Nguyen (before she had the Get Down, Stay Down Band), Grizzly Bear, Yeasayer, Alela Diane, The Bowerbirds and I could seriously go on forevez. But sometimes Daytrotter hosts some picnics, barbecues, and pizza parties with some of the bands that stop by the studio, imagine sharing a pizza and lemonade with Iron & Wine on a summer day! I might have to road trip to Rock Island one day.
