Here's the latest bounce megamix from Download it in full here, or check out individual tracks (including remixes of Galactic and Frank Ocean, and tracks from Magnolia Shorty, Vockah Redu, Big Freedia, Gotty Boi Chris, 5th Ward Weebie and others) here.

Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue recorded a Daytrotter session released this week. Download it free here. Among the kind things the Daytrotter folks said: "He's a true master, already, at his tender age, the product of and interpreter of past greatness." Whoa.

Look at Community Records' new website. A reminder: the label releases music for free. Some choice newer releases: The Lollies Potential and The Rooks I Can't, I Won't, Give Up, both available for free download.

At 10 p.m. tonight, Japan's Boris, New York's Asobi Seksu and Dallas' True Widow are at One Eyed Jacks. Read more on Boris in this week's Gambit, and download the band's latest track "Spoon," which abandons the band's years of Sabbath-worship doom and wicked speed for a shoegazing, shimmering arena-sized sound.

True Widow's slow, gorgeous "stone-gaze" is an amalgamation of heavy, down-tuned riffs of stoner metal and the dreamy, mild psychedelia of shoegaze bands. The Texas trio's self-titled 2008 LP was hailed by Aquarius Records, and its 2011 follow up (the impossibly titled As High As The Highest Heavens And From The Center To The Circumference Of The Earth) got the crowning of NPR's First Listen treatment. A five-song EP, I.N.O., was released last month. Download the track "Skull Eyes" (from Heavens) here, and watch the video after the jump — also, more music from other artists.

Also tonight, City of Ships, Opposable Thumbs and Brothers are at Hey! Cafe, at 7 p.m. (You also can catch Opposable Thumbs with Adults at Siberia, 10 p.m. Monday, too.) Download that band's free 2010 two-song digital EP here.

Lo-fi pioneers and '90s rock heroes Sebadoh perform at One Eyed Jacks, 10 p.m. Sunday. Read more in this week's Gambit. The trio recently perform the band's (best) album, 1994's Bakesale (Sub Pop), which lifted the band from its dissonant, weed-inspired muck into melodic, near-power-pop. Download all kinds of bootlegs and other live tracks on its website, and listen to the masterful 2011 reissue of that album on Spotify.
