[Listen & Download] Trampled By Turtles Release Free EP

[Sounds like: The Avett Brothers, Old Crow Medicine Show, Yonder Mountain String Band]

Trampled by Turtles, the recent bluegrass and root-music powerhouse, has released a free, 5-song EP appropriately titled "Burn For Free" on NoiseTrade. Although this is not an official EP and is offered exclusively on NoiseTrade, we thought we'd share it with you. We know y'all grovel over anything mentioning the word 'free,' so this one is like throwing a dog a bone for us. If you're a TBT fan, then chances are you already have each of these tracks, but for some of you who may not be familiar with the Minnesota-based band, this may be a crash course on a warm-hearted roots band.

Trampled by Turtles' album, "Where Is My Mind," was a huge success and has ultimately catapulted the band alongside (and then past) the likes of The Infamous String Dusters, Old Crow Medicine Show, and even the Avett Brothers. This free EP serves as a review of this album, as well as their latest project, "Stars and Satellites," which debuted in April. Despite only being a mix of previous songs, we can fully appreciate a reminder of just how good these guys are. Stream the entire "Stars and Satellites" album below, hit the jump to view a MUST WATCH short-film of TBT explaining themselves, and then head on over to Noise Trade to grab your free EP.


"I had no problem doing [this] broke...You know, you have to enjoy what you're doing. You have to go to a town and you play and you meet some people and then six months later you go back and hopefully there's more there next time. Kinda hope there's enough money to put in the gas tank the next day...and maybe eat."

Please note: If you do not consider yourself a TBT fan, or at least, appreciate their talent and demeanor after watching this short-film, then you do not have a soul.
