Greg Weeks is probably my favorite musician who I’ve yet to even mention on this page, but that’s just because I hadn’t found any free MP3s of his, and it might cause nine simultaneous aneurysms if I were to upload his best songs, due to him having so fucking many. At least, if you like psych-folk as much as I do. The free ones are outtakes from his EP Bleecker Station, and are still quite excellent considering they’re demos. It’s not just his solo work that makes me love him so; he’s also a founding member of Espers (who I will have to write about soon!), and he also utilized his psych-folk wizardry to trick out Marissa Nadler’s new album. I even took the time to add the video for the decidedly creepy adidas commercial featuring his decidedly awesome song, Made. That’s not the entirety of the song, but you can’t expect a commercial to be three minutes long… even if the song in it is awesome.

    He really is great. Nothing flashy, but he really knows how to find a memorable memory. THanks a lot. -LD
