Steven Dunston: To Get Home Before Night Comes

Steven Dunston is a musician, author, web developer and a big fan of open source software (just like us!). Back in 2006 he released two albums on Jamendo and now hopes to bring us more of his melodic songs this year. "To Get Home before Night Comes" is an extremely well written & produced album that's just easy and relaxing to listen to. Steven's clear, soft and soothing voice makes it feel like the lyrics just flow directly into your ears.

Paolo Pavan: Inside

I have spent a little time in Italian jazz clubs so I feel fairly safe saying that some of Europe’s best jazz musicians hail from Italy. (I have a French friend who would, and has, aggressively argued this with me). Pianist Paolo Pavan has to be one of the finer jazz artists in Italy and, from the sound of his free online album titled Inside, can clearly hold his own with the upper echelon of jazz musicians throughout the world.

Djizoes: Djizoes

Djizoes: (pronaunced Jesus in English) is a Swiss part hard rock part metal band which since their creation in 2002 managed to amaze many critics and convert many listeners into fans. Up to date, they've recorded two EPs, two full-length albums, toured around the world & played in front of tens of thousands of people at a time. Now Djizoes: has agreed to distribute some of their tracks free of charge through FrostWire straight to their P2P listeners.

A Shared Culture: Save the World from Failed Sharing

I must admit to feel silly for not knowing about this great video earlier! "A Shared Culture" was released by Creative Commons during their fund raising campaign in 2008 to spread the word about the organization's mission and to explain how the Creative Commons licensing works in a simple & innovative way. This short video was created by a Jesse Dylan, the filmmaker behind the Emmy Award-winning “Yes We Can" - Barack Obama campaign video with rapper will.i.am.

Josh Woodward: Only Whispering

This is an oldie-but-goody release from Josh Woodward. Praised for his melodic voice & witty lyrics Josh definitely delivers on this one. "Only Whispering" is probably the most acoustic of all seven of his albums and as he himself admits, the one most focused on storytelling. My favorite songs include "I'll Be Right Behind You, Josephine" for sweet lyrics & "East Side Bar" for its swing-like happy feeling. If you need a nice relaxing album to listen to on a quiet day - here is a perfect one for you.

Pod to PC or Pod to Mac

If you've ever held gigs worth of content on your iPod or iPhone and lost the originals on your computer - you will love this app. You might know by now that if you connect your fully loaded iPod to your freshly wipped computer, iTunes will automatically want to erase everything on your mp3 player and start fresh. iTunes will also not allow you to transfer music or videos from your iPod back to your computer if you've erased the original file from your desktop. Pod to PC or Pod to Mac will let you do it all! The applications are built to allow you to transfer music and videos from your iPod or iPhone into your Mac or PC directly into iTunes.
