Alive Records 2009 sampler (free mp3 album)

This is a good one that Amazon recently made available. Crawl through the grimy underbelly (or under something) where blues, punk and southern rock collide. Hold onto your ears.

Some of these songs sound like they are lost in time, harking back to 60s-era punk. There are lots of jangly guitars and the raw-edged sound of rockabilly. One song (by Brimstone Howl) sounds almost like the Ramones. Some of the samplers from Amazon are not worth mentioning--I've downloaded several that I never bothered to write about. This is not one of them. Go get it.
