    Two for the price of none. Download DEAD CANARIES GOLDEN SOUNDS and MODERN DAY CARPETBAGGER at http://cozyhomerecords.com/08/artists/dead-canaries/ for free Jon of the Atom and his travelling band of musical troubadours return like migrating free-form birds with two brand new albums - 'Golden Sounds' a year-long continuation of the upwards musical trajectory and an epically wretched record to make, and 'Modern Day Carpetbagger' apparently written and recorded over 'a long weekend reading John Wilmot'.
