In early April, we introduced you to a new monthly free music series from the Vosotros camp (see also Learning Music) in collaboration with local label Sargent Records.

The second pair of songs released under the Sargent Singles name comes from North Carolina troubadour Benji Hughes and local folk-ish outfit Willoughby, respectively.

Neither has released new music since 2008, so these free tracks offer a glimpse into what should be a solid couple of sophomore releases, hopefully due out in 2010.

Willoughby plays Silverlake Lounge on Wednesday before embarking on a West Coast jaunt opening for Band of Horses.

Hughes may actually be a Sasquatch.
