MP3 of the Day #240: The Hundred in the Hands

 
By on Thursday, 23rd September 2010 at 10:00 am
 

Brooklyn’s the Hundred in the Hands are about to go out on tour as support for the Temper Trap on a big North American tour, swiftly followed by a support slot for !!! in late October and November. This is perfect timing, as their self-titled debut album was just released Monday on Warp Records (reviewed yesterday on TGTF).

Thursdays can drag a bit, so to brighten your mood, how about this fab – and free! – track from the electropop duo? It’s fab, as is their album.

MP3 of the Day #239: Paul Smith

 
By on Wednesday, 22nd September 2010 at 10:00 am
 

By now, I’m sure you’ve heard that Maximo Park‘s frontman Paul Smith has decided to release a solo album. (No official word yet if Maximo has split up, is on hiatus, or what.) Smith’s debut solo effort, ‘Margins’, is set to be released on 11 October in the UK on Smith’s own Billingham Records label. Here’s one track from it, ‘North Atlantic Drift’, that we can offer to you via Rcrdlbl. Is it just me, or does it sound a bit Maximo, ‘Quicken the Heart’-era?

Paul Smith will be touring in support of ‘Margins’ in November and December – more details here.

 

Video of the Moment #351: Parlovr

 
By on Tuesday, 21st September 2010 at 6:00 pm
 

Here is the suitably anarchist video for Parlovr‘s ‘Pen to the Paper’. Really novel idea for a video: you, dear viewer, are a voyeur into a world of balloons and bonfires, fireworks and flags, all reminiscent of the psychedelic ’60s. Almost. Well, the sentiment is there. Enjoy it below.

 

MP3 of the Day #238: The Crookes

 
By on Tuesday, 21st September 2010 at 10:00 am
 

In anticipation of the release of their new EP, ‘Dreams of Another Day’, next week, Sheffield band the Crookes are offering a free download of a track from the EP. ‘Somewhere Over the Bus Stop’ is a gentle, gorgeous number that should get you running to pre-order their EP from Recordstore.co.uk for a mere £5.99 (and if you’re quick and lucky, you’ll get a signed copy). The band will be on a tour of English libraries (that’s right, libraries!) in October.

MP3 of the Day #237: Allo Darlin’

 
By on Monday, 20th September 2010 at 10:00 am
 

Allo Darlin’ is the London-based folk pop project led by Australian-born singer/songwriter Elizabeth Morris. With band members Paul Rains (guitar), Bill Botting (bass) and Michael Collins (drums), Allo Darlin’ began in earnest as a side band to Morris’s involvement in the Tender Trap and soon the group was noticed by newspapers, music magazines, and definitely not least of all, indie star maker Steve Lamacq, who has not been shy in his support for the band.

If you haven’t heard Allo Darlin’ yet, below is a great taster of a track called ‘My Heart is a Drummer’. It’s as catchy as Camera Obscura except that it’s got a ukulele.

MP3 of the Day #236: Aaron Wright and the Aprils

 
By on Tuesday, 14th September 2010 at 10:00 am
 

Aaron Wright and the Aprils is the musical vehicle of Scottish singer/songwriter Aaron Wright, someone very astute who has somehow managed to invite members of Belle and Sebastian, Camera Obscura and Teenage Fanclub to play with him in the studio. (Oh, to be a fly on the wall during their recording sessions…) I don’t think it was intentional but the track below, ‘Go On Yourself’, sounds as fun as the Beach Boys. And with horns, it doesn’t sound like the other surf pop bands on the scene right now. Pretty special.

Aaron and The Aprils’ debut EP, ‘Behold A Pale Horse’ will be released on 11th October.
