Altered Freebies: Girls; Lykke Li; The Decemberists; Dr. Dog

What's better than music? Free music. Producer Nick Jackson has scoured the internet to bring you the best free downloads featured on this week's Altered Fridays, 4-7 p.m.

Girls, “Heartbreaker{via Stereogum}
Girls are releasing a six-song EP later this month. This follows up Girls' impossible to Google album, Album. Here's a free song. Yay!

Lykke Li, “Get Some
The other day on a drive home, I asked my girlfriend where Lykke Li has been. Turns out she recorded some new music and put it up for free on her website. Grab them at LykkeLi.com.

The Decemberists, “Down By The Water
As awesome as it would be to hear Colin Meloy sing his version of "Have you ever seen a llama, wearing polka dot pajamas," this is not "Down By The Bay". While we wait for The Demeberists' children's record, they are releasing The King Is Dead in January. This is the first song from it.

Dr. Dog, “Take Me Into Town
You can't download it anymore, but it's worth putting up for a listen. Dr. Dog has been very prolific recently, with no complaints here. These should show up on a 7-inch at some point, hopefully in time to show up under the Christmas tree. I wonder if Santa has an in at Anti Records.
