This is Sounds of the Commons, the show dedicated to sharing great, free, creative commons licensed music. We’re back after a year and ready to pick up where we left off!
“Break Your Wicked Heart” is a cool little electronic track by artist David Ray Landers A.K.A. OATAO. It’s got hints of Deadmau5 in it for sure. It’s great.
Hot off the presses, this track was published just this past Monday and, I’ll be honest, I’m not sure what I think of it. I mean, I like it, but I don’t know why. It kinda reminds me of some of Yoko Kanno’s work on Ghost in the Shell, but I can’t quite place why. Sometimes the best gift you can give someone is a question, so I’ll leave this one to you folks.
Near as I can tell, this is the only track MrPontusBogren has ever uploaded to the CC sound space, but it’s a good one. Released nearly a year ago, “Sisters & Brothers” is a simple but good dance track. My recommended pairing: When driving at night on a freeway with lots of lit tunnels.
This soothing yet menacing number comes from “FairyTale”, one of many albums by Zero Project which tell a story starting from the first track and ending at the last. I highly recommend giving them each a listen. If I might geek out a bit, they take the artistic convention of non-diegetic music and run to the moon with it. With each track, you really feel the scale of the story expanding and the intensity and tone of the action swings and bends with the motions of the songs.
