Oh my flipping word. How is it, that I have gone my whole life without knowing about this incredible site?! How is it, that no one - until last night - had the decency to tell me about this delightful, little piece of heaven?? If you have no clue what I'm talking about, Daytrotter is a website/slash/studio in Rock Island, Illinois who gives "exclusive, re-worked, alternate versions of old songs and unreleased tracks by some of your favorite bands and by a lot of your next favorite bands". Basically, bands will drive through this small town, use Daytrotters equipment and instruments, record some tracks (new or old) and then keep making their way wherever they need to go. Sounds so convenient! Ha! After the session, Daytrotter posts the tracks as free downloads on their sites, and posts an article with a cute, little drawing - I love it! One new band, everyday. 28 songs a week. How cool is that??

Just wanted to share!
