By giving you a free download of title track ‘Jennifer’, which they’ve recorded lovingly in the acoustic version below. Listen to the song below, either from the Soundcloud widget or via the lovely video the band recorded of them performing it. Like it? You can have the track for your very own too. Enjoy.



MP3 of the Day (and more!) #562: Little Comets

By on Monday, 18th June 2012 at 10:00 am

After the release of their fab debut album ‘In Elusive Search of Little Comets’ in 2010, I’ve been somewhat desperate to see Little Comets live. I still haven’t gotten my chance – yet – but here’s something that smoothes things over somewhat. The band have recorded an acoustic version of ‘Language is Over’, part of the ‘Jennifer And Other Short Stories’ EP that came out on the 11th of June. (We featured title track ‘Jennifer’ previously as a Video of the Moment here.)

Today to start off the work week we’ve got both this version of ‘Language is Over’ for free download and the promo video below. Enjoy.

Little Comets‘ next single will be a song called ‘Jennifer’. (Following in the steps of ‘Joanna’? Hmm…) It’ll be out on the 28th of May on Dirty Hit. In the meantime, the band want you to have the acoustic version of fan favourite ‘Waiting in the Shadows in the Dead of Night’ absolutely free. Listen to and download the track below. Gorgeous vocals Robert, just gorgeous.
