(TGTF Exclusive!) MP3 of the Day #821: Glass Caves

 
By on Thursday, 17th April 2014 at 10:00 am
 

So you’re telling me you want 1) charismatic vocals, 2) mesmerising synths and 3) equally mesmerising guitars, all in one song? Glass Caves must just be the one for you today. There’s not a whole lot of information on the band’s Web site – I don’t even know where they’re from – but on the strength of this song they’re giving away for free, ‘Out of Control’, I am intrigued enough to post it here on TGTF. Listen to and grab it for your very own below.

Oh, and if epic hair is your thing, this band has the very high likelihood of knocking Temples off their pedestal. Just saying.

 

MP3 of the Day #820: Wild Smiles

 
By on Wednesday, 16th April 2014 at 10:00 am
 

It’s Wednesday. Hump day. (Is that an American thing? We tried to explain this concept to Little Comets last year and they seemed confused.) Anyway, you’re at the midpoint of the week, and now everything’s smooth sailing for the second half of the week to the weekend. Southampton trio Wild Smiles – think loud, frenetically played rock ‘n’ roll – are giving away their track ‘Fool for You’ for free. A debut album is expected later this year; we’re expecting great things.

Having just finished a short stint as support for You Me at Six, Cheltenham’s Young Kato will be heading out on a UK tour later this month and will also be playing several festivals, including Portsmouth Springtide Festival (19 April), Liverpool Sound City (3 May), Live at Leeds (3 May), and all three legs of Dot to Dot Festival in Manchester, Bristol and Nottingham on the 23rd, 24th and 25th of May, respectively.

Ahead of all that travelling and performing, the band are giving away a multi-coloured, high energy track called ‘Ignite’ for free in exchange for your email address. Input your details below to take advantage of this offer.

 

MP3(s) of the Day #818: Fierce Panda ‘Survival’ eight-track sampler

 
By on Wednesday, 2nd April 2014 at 10:00 am
 

Fierce Panda Records have put out some great music over its storied 20 years in business. We should know; we’ve reviewed albums by and become enamoured with many of their artists. In case you needed further convincing (but you really shouldn’t), the influential London indie label is giving away a pack of eight mp3s for free through Amazon UK. What’s included in the bundle?

1. ‘Robin Song’ – Woodpigeon
2. ‘Cutty Love’ – Milo Greene
3. ‘Under the Waterway’ – Goldheart Assembly (pictured at top)
4. ‘Where the Wind Blows’ – The Hosts (read my review of their 2014 album ‘Softly, Softly’ here)
5. ‘Sofie’ – The Crookes (read my review of their 2014 album ‘Soapbox’ here)
6. ‘Breaking Into Cars’ – The Raveonettes
7. ‘Good Enough’ – Mélanie Pain
8. ‘The Angel of the North’ – Tom Hickox

Get your pack of free eight mp3s from Amazon here.

 

MP3 of the Day #817: The Crookes

 
By on Friday, 28th March 2014 at 10:00 am
 

Ahead of the release of their third album ‘Soapbox’ on the 14th of April on Fierce Panda, The Crookes are giving away an album track via Noisetrade. You can grab ‘Marcy’, track #8 of the new LP, in exchange for your email address via this link.

We saw a fair bit of the Sheffield band when we were in Austin for SXSW 2014, including their appearances at Empire Control Room on Wednesday afternoon, their star turn headlining their American label Modern Outsider’s showcase at Parish Underground Wednesday night, a secret Sofar Sounds show Thursday evening, and at the British Music Embassy on Saturday afternoon.

 

MP3 of the Day #816: Cloud Boat

 
By on Tuesday, 25th March 2014 at 10:00 am
 

Sadly, I missed London’s Cloud Boat at SXSW 2014 (sob). But there is good news: a new album on R&S is supposed to drop this summer. I’m guessing this track, ‘Carmine’, will be on the second LP offering. Listen to and grab it while you can from the Soundcloud widget below.
