Still Got The Blues – Free Music – For You [Sound Sunday]

Tina Sieber 16-06-2014

This week, Sound Sunday does the blues. It won’t be sad and you won’t be laughing. But you will be rocking, back and forth, in the rhythm of the songs. Come meet some of the most talented artists who’ve got the blues and music that has soul.


Swedish Blues

Genre: blues, soul, rock

Who knew Swedes had the blues. This Stockholm-based band has been around since 2007. Moving On is the first single off their sophomore record Here We Are.

Blues Rocks

Genre: rock, soul, blues

“Remember why you started” is pinned to her studio wall. Red, aka The Coppertone, has been working on a new album for three years. Her fans are waiting. The Bakery EP will help pass the time. If soul speaks to you, why not let it in?

Genre: blues, rock, soul

“Sunday Morning” is dripping with Blues, Soul and Southern attitude. The EP features special guest John Popper from Blues Traveler on harmonica and Nigel Hall from Warren Haynes Band and Soulive. You can download the EP for free from NoiseTrade.

Genre: blues, rock

Dani Dorchin’s debut album was recorded live to capture the sound of a live performance. No overdubs were used. Dani plays the bass drum with his right foot, hits the snare drum and hi hat cymbal with his left foot, plays guitar, harmonica and sings.

Americana Blues

Genre: country, rock, americana, blues


This is the EP I wanted to make for years, but I never had the right people, the right time or the right energy. The people involved in making this have been close friends and musical allies for years, and to produce this with them was a pleasure. We all worked incredibly hard to produce this material and are all stoked about it. Hope you enjoy, Patrick

People that see Lee live try to explain their natural attraction to his performance. It’s a kind of electricity. You see the passion in his eyes. You believe what he’s singing. His energy is captivating. His live performances are known to lift up, shake down, and send you off with a new voice in your head. The songs themselves are soundtracks—to his own journey, and journeys we all are on.

Genre: blues, soul, rhythm & blues, soul-jazz

A strong dose of the blues goes down like single malt scotch when taken with a hit of Hammond organ centric blues band Lazy Eye. Their debut album “Move Me”, released July 2013, was voted blues album of the year in the South Australian Roots & Blues awards. Straight from the street comes their brand of soul inspired blues… From the swamp to the city to the down home and gritty. Download House Of Trouble free from NoiseTrade.

Bluesy Folk

Genre: alternative, acoustic, theatrical, blues, folk pop, ambient folk


Young Mario Lottari hails from the UK. Just like the rain in London, the blues is but a minor backdrop. The core of the music is theatrical folk.

To The Roots

Genre: blues, roots music, swamp stomp

They call him the king of swamp stomp. Recording artists and producer Iron Mike Norton is recognized as one of the most innovative blues artists of our time. If you listen closely, you’ll notice his creative use of elements from modern and traditional genres alike.

Blues Punk

Genre: experimental, blues, gothic jazz, psychedelic punk, rock’n roll

When garage punkers meet progressive musicians strange things are bound to happen. White Blacula is one such strange, happening thing. Fronted by the enigmatic performance poet Gym, and featuring members of Zombina and the Skeletones, a.P.A.t.T, The Laze and Ex Easter Island Head, Liverpool’s White Blacula deliver obnoxious rock n’ roll with an absurd twist, which can at any time be absolute pop or total noise.

      Well, nothing has been decided, yet. But we do need to get the numbers up and if you enjoy Sound Sunday, you can help!

      Spread the word, share it with your friends, if you see anything you particularly like, let me know what it is, and likewise let me know what can be done better (and how). Your support and feedback are important!

    With radio in its current state, it's very hard to find new artists, new music, for the average listener. Sound Sunday is a great way to be introduced to new music and artists -- I know I would miss it! Today's was especially good; I listened to most of the songs and purchased a few, too. Thank you for your hard work and bringing new music to our collective attention!

    • Tina S
      June 17, 2014 at 8:08 pm

      Thank you very much for the kind words Thelma! It's a lot of fun for me to discover new music and compile it into a Sound Sunday edition every week.

      Please share Sound Sunday if you enjoy it, so I can continue to do this! :)

    Great list, Tina! So far, this is the best Sound Sunday for me! It's been a long time since I last listened to the Blues. I enjoyed almost every song here, most particularly The Coppertone's Woman to Woman! It sounds sooo badass and raw! Loved it! It is literally on repeat on my playlist now!

    I would def miss Sound Sunday if it will end. I discover new artists on this post. I look forward to it every Monday (sorry, not on Sundays) when I arrive at work and listen to the playlist while I'm busy doing paperwork. Please don't end yet!

      Thank you for the feedback, Nahla! It was fun to produce this one.

      Glad to hear you also enjoy the playlist. I was really hoping this would help Sound Sunday take off in terms of how much it's shared and how many people return to it in the long term.

    It's probably a lot of work to compile a list every week.

    So you could make one every 2 weeks.
    Or not really limit yourself to a certain genre every week, but just everything you come across/find on the minilogs

    I would certainly miss it.

      It's not so much the work as the response from readers. We see very little sharing, page views, or comments.

      Focusing on separate genres or topics was an effort to make it more shareable. What else could I try to make it more popular? Please help!

    Q: "What if Sound Sunday ceased to exist. Would you miss it?"
    A: One must not joke about this thing. ;)

      Unfortunately, it's not a joke. The column is not particularly popular. Not receiving a lot of traffic from Google or otherwise. We do see that a lot of people return to it, but it's not shared or viewed very much.

      @Tina If so, Sound Sunday will be sorely missed. But, please, think it over and over. Thanks.

      The good news is that the final decision hasn't been made, yet. For now, I'll continue trying making it more popular.

      Reaching out to loyal followers of Sound Sunday is one step. You guys can easily help us make Sound Sunday more popular by commenting, sharing, and spreading the word. Can you?
