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.

MP3 of the Day #254: Freelance Whales

Freelance Whales are giving away a new track, ‘Enzymes’. It starts out with militant drumming – a little different than what I expected from this eclectic folk/pop/rock band – but then synths and heavenly vocals come in and remind you it’s Freelance Whales. I really like this one, and I think you will too.

 

MP3 of the Day #253: My My My

Chicago’s My My My can thank an internet site for their formation: Craigslist. Looking for a kindred spirit on the free ad posting Web site, founder Russell Baylin found a kindred spirit in singer Sarah Snow. Thus were the humble beginnings of this Midwest power pop band. To be honest, I don’t know too much about this band, but I got sent this mp3 last week and my ears perked up at the first listen and I definitely wanted to share it with you the readers. My My My’s vibe reminds me a bit of Manchester’s Performance, if you’re looking for a similar-sounding band currently on the English music scene.

Editor’s note: Sorry to sound like the BBC, but if you are easily offended by strong language, steer clear of the links below b/c the mp3 I was supplied was ‘explicit’.

MP3 of the Day #252: The Ting Tings

 
By on Monday, 18th October 2010 at 10:00 am
 

My first impression of this announcement on the Ting Tings‘s Web site last week: ok, something definitely must be going wrong in the universe if Passion Pit is coming round to remix the Ting Tings.

Then I had a listen. I really like this version! Much better than the original!

Have a listen and/or download the remix below. Comments appreciated, ta muchly.

MP3 of the Day #251: Kowalski

 
By on Friday, 15th October 2010 at 10:00 am
 

Fellow Bangorites Kowalski are touring buddies of Two Door Cinema Club, and any mates of TDCC are mates of mine. The Northern Irish quartet are offering a free download of their track ‘Navigate November’. Think TDCC, but a bit less frenetic and a bit more precious. Just lovely!

You can stream and download ‘Navigate November’ for your very own below.

MP3 of the Day #250: Jenny and Johnny

 
By on Thursday, 14th October 2010 at 10:00 am
 

Jenny and Johnny is the new side project of Jenny Lewis (Rilo Kiley) and Johnathan Rice. The 1st of November sees the band’s release of their debut album, ‘I’m Having Fun Now’, in America. Below you can download one of the tracks from the new album, ‘Scissor Runner’. I really like the guitars with the dueling vocals in this one.
