(Valentine’s Day!) MP3 of the Day #296: Cowboy Junkies

By on Monday, 14th February 2011 at 10:00 am

Legendary Canadian alt-rock country and folk band Cowboy Junkies released a new album of covers, ‘Demons’, last month in America. It’s a tribute to the band’s late, dear friend Vic Chesnutt, who tragically ended his life on Christmas Day 2009. But out of tragedy comes some of the most beautiful music. The Cowboy Junkies are offering up their version of ‘Flirted With You All My Life’, a song about love and regret. We all make choices in this life. Maybe today you’ll be making an important one or two in your own?


MP3 of the Day #295: The Wombats

By on Friday, 11th February 2011 at 10:00 am

It’s Friday. And we’ve got a free Wombats track, ‘Addicted to the Cure’, for you. What could be better? This one’s decidedly different than ‘Jump in the Fog’, their single released last month.

‘The Wombats proudly present… This Modern Glitch’, the Wombats’ next album, will be released on 11 April.


MP3 of the Day #294: Cut Copy

By on Thursday, 10th February 2011 at 10:00 am

To celebrate this week’s release of their fourth studio album, ‘Zonoscope’, Cut Copy wants everyone to have this remix of ‘Take Me Over’ by Brooklyn’s Midnight Magic. It’s a disco take of the Australian band’s more overtly poppy original, and definitely worth a listen and download. It’s time to get down and get funky!


MP3 of the Day (and more!) #293: Jon Fratelli

By on Wednesday, 9th February 2011 at 10:00 am

Scottish band the Fratellis have been on hiatus since 2009, with lead singer/guitarist Jon Fratelli going on to co-found Codeine Velvet Club. Then he decided he wanted to go solo. Still following on? Good.

You’re probably wondering what Jon been up to, and here’s something new for you to sink your teeth into. Called ‘Rhythm Doesn’t Make You A Dancer’, it’s a taster to the album he just finished recording (yet to be titled) and being given away as a celebration that his work on the new recording is complete. I like to think it’s a good-natured knock to Snap!’s 1992 hit ‘Rhythm is a Dancer’. Seriously. Watch the video and be prepared to laugh. (Unless of course you take line dancing seriously.)

MP3 of the Day (and more!) #292: Metronomy

By on Tuesday, 1st February 2011 at 10:00 am

Metronomy‘s single released on Monday, ‘She Wants’, is an intriguing taster to their highly anticipated next album ‘The English Riviera’. Some of the words sound robotic, but in this case, it’s strangely intoxicating. And the band is offering up the single as a free download in exchange for your email address. Really, you need to hear this track. And visually, the promo video is surreal and brilliant, down to “a glass of water by her side”. Check out both below.

MP3 of the Day #291: Holy Ghost!

By on Friday, 28th January 2011 at 10:00 am

I heard this track from Holy Ghost!, ‘Do It Again’, on Nemone’s show on 6music on Wednesday morning and loved it, so I was very pleased to see it’s being offered as a stream and free download over on Rcrd Lbl. What a perfect way to get ready for the weekend.
