If you’re like me you’re a huge fan of bands putting out albums that are free to download. It tends to happen a lot around Christmas, and if your talented you can find others throughout the year. I guess I was too enamored with dubstep hip-hop last month, because I missed a free album from Walter Meego.
They released the Wondervalley album in halves with the first part coming out in late November and the second half hitting the internet just before Christmas. Wondervalley is the group’s second album, you might have heard the one of the singles from their first album on tv somewhere.
The first album, Voyager, had a lot more electropop sound, don’t get me wrong thought the new work is still light but has traded in some electronic sound for a little more human warmth. I am not sure I am willing to go so far to say the new work is an improvement but it is still enjoyable and it is freaking free! In my book you can’t go wrong with that strategy.
If I were to pick a single for this album I would go with “Here I Am”. It is light but not annoyingly so and has the ability to get in your head.
