MP3(s) of the Day #688: The Chapman Family

By on Friday, 5th October 2012 at 10:00 am

The track ‘Lies’ had been a mainstay of the Chapman Family‘s live shows from 2008 to 2011. An actual recording to have and hold has been next to impossible to come by, so the band are giving this version away for free. It’s rare as all hell, so all the more reason to grab this version, recorded at Green Dragon Studios in Stockton-on-Tees in early 2010, for your very own, right? I will leave you with the words the band themselves used to describe the song:

It’s about paranoia, confusion and the feeling of being able to see through the lies of people in positions of authority but not being able to do a thing about it. The noise and feedback in the music of the song was supposed to mirror the feeling of panic and terror in the lyrics. The band themselves were so passionate about the song that they wanted it to be a central focal point of their debut album. However, seemingly everyone else in the world disagreed.

The band have also made covers of Crowded House‘s ‘Don’t Dream It’s Over’ and Kate Bush‘s ‘Army Dreamers’ free as well. You can listen to and download any or all of these tracks below.

London’s Duologue will be releasing a new double A-side single, ‘Underworld’ / ‘Zeros’, on the 29th of October through Killing Moon Records. Here is the band’s own Sub remix version of it, for absolutely free. Listen to and download it below.


MP3 of the Day #685: The Antlers

By on Tuesday, 2nd October 2012 at 10:00 am

The Antlers released the ‘Undersea’ EP in July, and here is a remix of a song off the EP, for ‘Crest’. Surprisingly, it’s by Tricky and if the story from RCRD LBL is correct, they met in Lisbon over a malfunctioning coffee press and then came up with the idea of Tricky reimagining this song. Listen to and download the track below.
