Plus, we've got loads of audio to kick off the season of giving, starting with our friends at Audio Blood Media, who offer up a new Mixtape featuring several of their artists, four tracks (of 13) from the Feist documentary bonus CD, a new song from the Skeletones Four, and the most recent Daytrotter session featuring Diamond Rings.

Feist - Look at What the Light Did Now (sampler)
I got a chance to see the Toronto premiere of the new Feist documentary Look at What the Light Did Now (review here), which is released today (December 7) on DVD. Included with the brilliantly inspiring film is a 13-track bonus CD that features stripped down live performances and piano covers from Chilly Gonzales, a sample of which can be heard via Exclaim!.
The Skeletones Four - "Trap Door"
Psychedelic rock and roller's, The Skeletones Four, have given fans the first taste of their upcoming release Gravestone Rock with their new track "Trap Door", which seems to picking up right where their debut album, AAAAAHHH!!!, left off. [MP3]
Diamond Rings - Daytrotter Session
2010 has definitely been a great year for John O'Regan, aka Diamond Rings, who has been thrust into a whirlwind of media coverage since the release of his critically acclaimed album Special Affections. Now, Diamond Rings is the latest Southern Ontario musician featured on Daytrotter in their most recent session, and you can hear all four tracks by following the download link here. [DOWNLOAD]
