Three For Free: The Rocket Summer, Natives, and Misha B Give Away Their Music

This week’s music news updates have felt pretty slow. What’s worse is that the rare headlines that were written were mostly negative, such as iconic rock label Roadrunner Records closing many of their office doors. The fears surrounding the future of the music industry seem to be growing with each day. However, I wanted to cheer you up. Here’s three free legal downloads approved by the artists. Enjoy these but don’t enjoy those songs you’re getting via torrent sites and/or any other illegal way of getting your musical fix.


Following their re-invention after ditching their previous moniker Not Advised, Natives have kept releasing material to a minimal. To thank their fans for their patience since their name change, the band has released the second song from the second phase of their career – for free, of course.

Misha B

Viewers of the UK’s The X Factor will recognise Misha B as the semi-finalist of 2011’s series. She’s spent the first part of this year on the TV talent show’s countrywide tour, though she’s keen to break away with her new mixtape Why Hello World (which she’s giving away via Soundcloud).

The Rocket Summer

The Rocket Summer has re-released an entire album for free to his fans on Thursday. Although diehards probably downloaded the live acoustic album Bryce Avery, His Instruments and Your Voices last year, Noise Trade is featuring it once again as they are also giving away an exclusive new song. Oh, and you can give a tip, too, if you want to. Support your favourite artists.
