4.0 out of 5 stars Community Music Sampler: Nice mix of various styles September 18, 2012
Format:MP3 Music
Music samplers can often be interesting, as it's a chance for artists to showcase their work. In the case of this alternative rock Community Music Sampler album, it's a good one. The Community Music label is tied into the well established Vagrant Records, an indie rock label based in Los Angeles, and has been around since it was founded by Rich Egan and Jon Cohen in 1996.

1. So I Turn, by Aaron Embry, is from his debut album "Tiny Prayers," and a good intro to this album.
2. Truth, by Alexander & The RZA. This was featured during the season premiere of "Breaking Bad" on AMC.
3. Drop, by Cornelius. Water running and birds chirping, and a good track rrom the artist's album "Point."
4. Give Me A Sign, by Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros. Old school troubadours and poets.
5. For Marlon, by Soko. Unique personal and beautiful semi-narrative from her album "I Thought I Was An Alien."
6. Boxing Day, by Letts & Rocco Deluca. Rocco DeLuca & Christian Letts from Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros.
7. Raven's Song, by Aaron Embry. Good piano solo with vocals from his new album "Tiny Prayers."

The seven tracks here run a total length of 26:16, and Soko's offering here was a pleasant surprise. But the real standout tracks here are from former Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeroes pianist turn soloist Aaron Embry. The first and last tracks from his debut album "Tiny Prayers" really make this sampler worthwhile. But don't take my word for it, it's a free sampler, so download it and see what you think.

Every song on this compilation is beautiful! I will search out more works by most of these artists, but I especially loved the 2 pieces by Aaron Embry.

It was actually better than I expected. Free music seems to be one side of the spectrum or the other...either really good or really not and I really enjoyed this one. Thanks for offering it to us! :)

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Good for Free October 10, 2012

Amazon sent me this list of musical performances that was free to download on the Amazon Cloud Player, so I downloaded it.

Almost all of the selections were of the type of music that I like. Amazon knows my favorite music styles and does a good job of sending me selections to choose from. This one was right on!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great sample October 8, 2012

Great mix of sounds I probably wouldn't have found alone. It was recommended because I downloaded an Edward Sharpe and Co song. Great selection with good breadth that will get your feet stompin'.
