Music Award Nominee MP3s: The New Batch

Rocks Off hopes you have been voting in this year's Houston Press Music Awards so far, but if you're the stubborn Luddite sort, the ballot will be on page 49 of the print issue that hits newsstands tomorrow or Thursday, depending on how far out you live. Rocks Off thinks all of this year's nominees are pretty far out - sorry - which is why we've taken to posting as many of their MP3s as we possibly can.

Nominees, it's still not too late to send us your songs. Just like we always do, we'll link to the MP3s we've already posted before we get to our latest batch, in case you've forgotten if you've sent us anything or not. You can always send it again, or for the first time, to chris.gray@houstonpress.com. We'll keep posting and posting until the weekend of the HPMA showcase as long as you keep sending 'em in.

Today Rocks Off gives you After Time Has Passed (Best Metal), Dead P.A. (Best Experimental/Instrumental), Footpie (Best Reggae/Dub), Ira Perez (Best Female Vocals), Spain Colored Orange (Best Indie Rock) and J. Sylvester (Best Jazz).
