I’m not sure what it is, but I’m a total sucker for the banjo.

I just came across Seryn [h/t: Paste Magazine], and I’m loving their eclectic, joyous music which features, yes, banjos amidst their multi-instrumental approach.

Download a free MP3 of their take on Go, Tell it on the Mountain at their Bandcamp site.

I’ve admired the work of the folks at Invisible Creature for awhile now. From the Sasquatch Music Festival to the Hurricane Poster Project, Invisible Creature has developed a strong voice in the design world.

Now, you’re invited to join the fun! The Lil’ Happy Invisible Creature S.A.S.E Club is kind of a throwback nod to the days when people actually sent letters to each other (“S.A.S.E” means “self-addressed stamped envelope, by the way).

Here’s how it works:

It’s real simple. Send us a self-addressed stamped envelope and we’ll fill it with goodies. Put 2 stamps on your return envelope and we’ll fill it with more.

However, we thought we’d make it a bit more fun and interactive. Regardless of your artistic ability, we ask that your envelope addressed to us be creatively designed or illustrated. No rules, anything goes – and we’ll post the coolest ones on the Lil’ Happy Twitter page.

One of these days, I will get back to blogging (hmm, I’ve heard that before)…

In the meantime, get a free movie rental at Amazon.com (didn’t realize they were renting out movies — this must be their intro marketing campaign?).

Maybe I’ll finally get around to watching Helvetica

Tim Hughes and his Worship Central crew have made available a free acoustic worship album for download.

Tim is best-known for penning popular worship anthems such as Here I Am to Worship (Light of the World), Beautiful One and Happy Day.

The Worship Central site has loads of free chord sheets, video tutorials (for guitar, drums, etc.) and worship-related articles.  Merry Christmas, friends!

Santa’s not the only bearded gift-giver this Christmas!  Get your fill of free hirsute holiday music (oh, there will be banjos)…

From the folks at Sounds Familyre records, get yourself a free Christmas album (or two, even).  Not your standard muzaky holiday shopping soundtracks…

At The Record Machine, get all woodsy with a free copy of The More The Merrier Christmas.

And, this one’s neither Christmas-y nor beard-y, but you can download alternate versions of songs from A Thousand Shark’s Teeth by My Brightest Diamond via Asthmatic Kitty.

This one’s a bit early, but I haven’t posted any freebies in awhile, so here’s one from the robots at Gmail.

Visit gmail.com/holidaycard and send a holiday postcard, on Google! I have to say, though, there’s something odd about using the Gmail machine to send an old-school snail mail postcard.

The good folks of Adah Design have released a free handset font, Oh Mercy! Nice work from some nice people.
