When you have a minute, do yourself a favor and get on over to the Free Music Archive, a website where artists can post their tracks for free download. Portland's Woolen Men—the trio of Rafael Spielman, Lawton Browning, and Alex Geddes—have a handful of songs available that you should be listening to every day. Their potent combination of classic, shimmery rhythm guitar, pummeling drumbeats, and anthemic songwriting shows a band that sonically encapsulates aspects of this time and place. The selection of releases they've delivered during their two-year tenure is ripe with a sense of musical heritage—from the blissfully unabashed tone of Daniel Johnston to the lightly distorted jangle of New Zealand pop. On their latest, the magnificent The Portland Building EP, you can hear both the confluence of all these good things, and the birth of the Woolen Men's own sound. MARANDA BISH
