Free Download Friday #26: Dave Arcari

Another short and sweet post today and more free downloads from last.fm.

The artist is called Dave Arcari and I came across his name because he writes a blog for Rock Radio. The tracks available on last.fm are Got Me Electric and Soul Of A Man. They should give you a good idea of what Dave sounds like. Essentially we are talking dirty slide guitar, gruff and gritty vocals and a style of blues that borrows heavily from punk, country and rockabilly.

Check him out and let me know what you think.

I love his music. Good choice. I know it's quite different but it puts me in mind of Seasick Steve.

He has played as support for Seasick Steve (Biography) and has a quote from Steve on the front page of his website.

I know it's a different style of music, but the stripped down, one voice, one guitar sound reminds me of Billy Bragg.
