Chicago indie four-piece Machinegun Mojo won't release their new full-length, Souvenirs From the Other Side of Here, until late August, but in the meantime they're offering a taste with two free downloads from the record. The songs, available below,are a great introduction to the band's folk-tinged rock. "Hannah" is a storytelling song that starts off with a light, jaunty melody and builds up into a bluesy romp, while "Woman" is a mellower, Americana-styled tune.

While Souvenirs From the Other Side of Here is nearly completed, the band say they are still trying to pay for some odds and ends (production costs, pressing, etc) to tie everything up. For this reason they've set up an account on kickstarter.com, where you can pledge money to help the release along if you dig what the guys are doing. For more on that, click here.
You can also show your support by heading to Double Door on Thursday, August 12, to catch them live.
