Free album from Jake McKelvie and the Countertops
As Jake McKelvie and the Countertops wrote earlier in this holiday weekend, "freedom isn't free, but our music is". The only thing I can add to that generous offer from the musical Keene, New Hampshire kitchen surfaces is that you are really should go to the Bandcamp link and download this album. These songs are good storytelling with simple, hummable melodies and lo-fi, scruffy charm. I've provided a couple of streams below, but you can listen to the entire album on Bandcamp.
The band members are Jake McKelvie (guitar/vocals), Nick Votruba (bass), and Matt Bacon (drums), although other players lend their talents from time to time.
