MP3 of the Day #260: Skint and Demoralised

 
By on Monday, 1st November 2010 at 10:00 am
 

Skint and Demoralised is the pop vehicle of singer/songwriter Matt Abbott. It’s hard to believe we profiled S&D a year and a half ago on TGTF as a Bands to Watch. Matt’s back now with a couple new songs and an album release on the horizon hopefully sooner than later in 2011.

I am pleased to announce we’ve been given the green light to offer one of these new songs, ’43 Degrees’ as a free download today. Like most of other S&D songs that have already come to light, it features Matt’s engaging vocals and best of all, it’s poppy as heck. (And you know I love that.)

MP3 of the Day #259: Toy Horses

Never heard of Welsh duo Toy Horses? You soon will. Triumphant turns at America’s South by Southwest emerging music festival in 2009 (where they were featured in a showcase at the festival by Nic Harcourt, who championed Coldplay in their early days) and again in 2010 plus playing a gig at Los Angeles’s famed venue Spaceland…phew. That all says to me this act is no one-trick pony. (Sorry, I had to get an equine-flavoured joke in here somehow.)

Further investigation of these Welshmen makes for an interesting read: the duo comprises Adam Franklin and Tom Williams, who are stepson and stepfather. The family dynamic would not make you think immediately songwriting harmony’, yet listen to Toy Horses’s track ‘Interrupt’. It is a beautiful, expansive piece with gorgeous strings that makes me think of the beauty of the current season (autumn). It’s Friday. Let yourself fall in love. Listen, download, and enjoy the magic that is Toy Horses below.

 

MP3s of the Day #258: The Answering Machine

 
By on Thursday, 28th October 2010 at 10:00 am
 

Manchester’s Answering Machine just released a new single, ‘Animals’, on Monday, and we’re happy to be able to give it to you this morning. And one better, their buddies Dutch Uncles had a go with remixing the tune as well (and it’s suitably maths-poppy as can be expected). Listen, download and enjoy both tracks below.

(Note from fellow bass player: brill bass line, guys, totally brill.)

We featured the video on TGTF earlier this month, check it out here.

 

MP3 of the Day #257: Brian Huber

Sometimes you just need something silly to relieve some stress. Washington DC native Brian Huber decided to take one of the most ridiculous products ever sold on an infomercial and turn it into a very funny song, ‘Snuggies’. There’s even a very funny Muppet-inspired video to go along with it. Hope this makes your midweek a little bit brighter!

By on Friday, 22nd October 2010 at 10:00 am
 

By now I’m sure you’ve heard the superb ‘Girls and Boys’ by Bristol band Wilder, and today we have for you another song by them, ‘Skyful of Rainbows’, for download below. We’ve even got the video linked up too for your viewing pleasure.

The word on the street that the band’s debut album will be out in the new year. (Yes!)

MP3 of the Day #255: Slow Down Honey

 
By on Thursday, 21st October 2010 at 10:00 am
 

Winter might be fast approaching for us in the Northern Hemisphere, but you will be happy to know that our friends down under are keeping the beats hot as they get geared for summer. Check out this right corker from New South Wales outfit Slow Down Honey. Called ‘One I Know’, it’s got the vibe of Phoenix, but somehow manages to be even sunnier than those lovable Frenchmen. And if that wasn’t enough, we also have an even dancier version of ‘One I Know’ remixed by Sydney’s Redial. Sceptical? Have a listen to and download both below.
