Download This: Songs by Sean Paul, and more
SEAN PAUL, ''TEMPERATURE (LIVE)''
The dancehall king continues to offer more sizzling evidence of global warming with his current smash. He's now offering a frenzied live version of that song and five others exclusively online. Buy the song at iTunes
AMY MILLAN, ''SKINNY BOY''
As co–lead singer of indie-pop group Stars, she employs her breathy vocals to produce irresistible mini-epics. Millan's debut solo track is equally enticing, albeit on a more intimate scale. Download the track for free at Arts & Crafts Records
LEEROY STAGGER, ''JUST IN CASE''
''So-and-so tried to kill themselves last night,'' croaks Stagger on this deceivingly upbeat track. Amid twangy guitar, the singer's unflinching lyrics reveal the track's underlying peril. Download for free here
SOMETHING FOR ROCKETS, ''I NEVER KNOW''
Though it’s produced by blink-182's Mark Hoppus and sung by Itzhak Perlman's son, ''I Never Know'' doesn't involve pop punk or classical violin. Actually, it's a new-wavey dance-rocker. Download for free here
