"Here I am, a bundle of past recollections and future dreams, knotted up in a reasonably attractive bundle of flesh. I remember what this flesh had gone through; I dream of what it may go through. I record here the actions of optical nerves, of taste buds, of sensory perception. And, I think: I am but one more drop in the great sea of matter, defined, with the ability to realize my existence."

-Sylvia Plath

Josh Rouse

I have had Josh Rouse's song "quiet town" on my you tube playlist for a long time, I love the song and the video, and now he has TWENTY FIVE songs up on noisetrade! 

And as Noisetrade says so often "completely free, completely legal" but you can donate to the artist. 

You should go check it out.

As taken from the noisetrade page, about Josh Rouse:
For more than a decade, Josh Rouse has been honing his skills as a songwriter; traveling the world, blending his various experiences and channeling them into his work. With songs like "Directions" (which appeared in the Cameron Crowe/Tom Cruise collaboration Vanilla Sky) and "Flight Attendant" (which Glee creator Ryan Murphy hand picked for his Julie Roberts inspired version of Eat Pray Love), not to mention numerous appearances on television staples such as Grey's Anatomy and Parenthood; Josh's music has quietly found its way into the world and todays culture, while remaining timeless and relevant. Summertime, a 25 song sampler covering his most recent albums and EPs, includes a song from his new project, Josh Rouse and The Long Vacations, out on September 27th. You'll also get a taste of his Bedroom Classics Closet Archives series, a digital-only collection which features unreleased singles, radio sessions and live performances, available exclusively at
