Whatever you think of veteran singer-songwriter Josh Rouse’s music, you can’t accuse him of standing pat. Usually, you might be able to look forward to a new album from your favorite artist every few years. Since his debut in 1998, though, Rouse has cranked out a new release every year or two.


Rouse has also offered a wealth of exclusive material via a subscription service through his website. Now, he is offering a free 25-track “Summertime Sampler” through NoiseTrade. You’ll need to provide your email and zip code for a download link.


The sampler includes the new song “Diggin in the Sand”, credited to Josh Rouse and the Long Vacations. The trio’s eponymous album will be out later this year. The rest of “Summertime Sampler” is made up of recent album tracks and rarer odds’n'sodds. Enjoy.
