MP3 of the Day #216: Josh Ritter

In a similar vein as Tom McRae and Joshua Radin, Josh Ritter does that slow, fragile guitar stuff with amazing tales that I so love. Download this and wake up slowly this morning.

MP3 of the Day #215: Sky Larkin

Sky Larkin have never really been one of those bands that I’ve paid tonnes of attention to. However when I popped their new album, Kaleide, on for a spin the other day when walking to work, I fell in love – it’s the sort of good ol’ fashioned indie guitar stuff that Wichita manage to just attract so effortlessly to their label. Their new album, Kaleide sadly leaked onto the interwebs last week, so you can stream it for free on their official website, or be a really good person and do the right thing and pre-order their album that’s out on 9th August (also from their official website). Download the title track from the album below, and a rather creepy remix of the first track, Still Windmills. Download, listen and enjoy…

MP3 of the Day #214: Annuals

 
By on Sunday, 18th July 2010 at 10:00 am
 

I first saw Annuals when they supported The National way back in 2007, but things have gone kind of quiet since then. So imagine my childlike excitement at seeing them on the NME website with a track that is typically off-kilter – starting off all summery and Caribbean, it’s a pretty euphoric song with pretty dark lyrics. Take a dash of Flaming Lips, a hint of Mew and a bit dollop of Arcade Fire and you’re not even half way there. Check them out and fall in love. Seriously.

MP3 of the Day #213: Ray Dar Vees

Ray Dar Vees were first introduced to us by Emmy’s rather wonderful single review. Now they’re giving this rather nice four and a half minute track away free of charge. Reminiscent of 80′s U2, 2009′s White Lies, and mid 00′s stellastarr*, it’s the sort of thing that gives you a hint of what they’re capable of without promising the world. Nice.

MP3 of the Day #212: Hesta Prynn

 
By on Friday, 16th July 2010 at 10:00 am
 

Way back last february when we started doing MP3 of the Day we featured Hesta Prynn as our very first MP3otd. Now with over 212 individual MP3 of the day posts later, we’ve come full circle, back to a new Hesta Prynn track.

Hailed by the New York Post as “M.I.A. and Miike Snow’s lovechild”, this is a great way to kick-start your weekend – upbeat, driving drums and immensly catchy, you’ll have it looping round your head like you haven’t experienced since you saw the Gaga Alejandro video.

MP3 of the Day #211: Aerials Up

 
By on Thursday, 15th July 2010 at 10:00 am
 

It’s summertime, mid-afternoon. The sun is out. You’re stuck in a smelly office with very little air circulation and fewer windows. Need to snap out of the post-lunch yawns? A relatively new band with a mind blowing tune is just your answer.

Dubbed Aeriels Up, the ten (make that mega) piece out of Glasgow have a fresh single, “Stay Awake”, that is both ridiculously catchy and gloriously fun. It all kicks off with a nice driving rhythm that soon explodes into a massive plume of folk, rock, soul, and other various highlights that hold this song so neatly together. The other bonus is that with all the seemingly chaos happening, the overall product is smooth, and happily not over the top.

Guitars, violin, choirs, cleverly designed harmonies and orchestral strings – it’s all in this three and a half minute track. It’s no wonder then that such a big tune is drawing some mighty reactions, from the likes of Paolo Nutini to Gary Lightbody.

Break out of that confined office space a little early today, and wrap your ears around this as you strut out, right on past those drowsy coworkers.

You can listen to this track below, or download it from MusicGlue for free.
