Lots of interesting free music from some of The Barn's favorite bands in this week's Linkafication.
Van Ghost is running a pretty badass promotion to pick the first single from their latest release at Grooveshark. You can also win a package for Chicago's North Coast Music Festival.
Greensky Bluegrass is offering a free download of their EP Handguns in advance of their October album release for the small price of an email address.
And Chicago prog-rockers Barefoot Fred offers a download of their infectious Worship The Sun EP, no email address required.
You can still stream Steepwater Band's new disc CLAVA from their site - it dropped in record stores this past Tuesday.
