So I grabbed the files, and decided to check out Brad Sucks' site. I'm impressed. Clean, polished sound, with catchy, well-done songs with sounds ranging from acoustic to piano to pop to rock to techno. I never knew independent could make my ears so happy. I'd recommend checking him out (http://www.bradsucks.net/) if you're interested; all his music is available for download on his site. I can't believe that he does it all himself.
Right now I'm busy checking out all Brad's links to other independents. Huzzah!
