DOWNLOAD: Free Music from SXSW’s The BGP
Heading to Austin this month to perform at SXSW, Seattle’s upbeat “blue-eyed soul” band THE BGP just advanced in “America’s Got Talent” competition after a standing ovation of Elton John’s “Benny and the Jets” won the judges and the crowd over (via Guerrilla Candy). The BGP has a reputation of electrifying live performances, packed houses, and often jumping onstage and performing with other local acts from Seattle’s tight-knit music community. Recently touring with bands like the break-out stars Fitz and the Tantrums, Ernie Halter, and Allen Stone, the BGP is known for free-styling lyrics and ridiculous musicianship.
THE BGP chose select blogs to give away a free download of “Name” from their recent release Love & Rent and RadioPotato was one of the lucky few! Be sure to catch them at SXSW and follow them on Twitter and Facebook. In the meantime, download the pop-infused bluesy track (the little “down” arrow on the right) and enjoy!
