Wired points us to Daytrotter, a site where the owners record sessions with their favorite artists. Influenced by the BBC’s John Peel sessions the Iowa-based music critic Sean Moeller and engineer Patrick Stolley launched the site to showcase MP3s of live, studio sessions with recent guests like French Kicks, Vietnam, and Of Montreal. Wired says:

Daytrotter’s recordings are known for their warm, fluid sound, the result of the studio’s candy shop of vintage gear, including a Rhodes piano, a Lowrey tube organ, and a dozen Spectra Sonic preamps. “We record straight to quarter-inch tape,” Moeller says. “There are no overdubs. No ProTools. What you hear on the site is exactly what happened that day.”
