MP3 of the Day #313: The Naked and Famous

 
By on Tuesday, 22nd March 2011 at 10:00 am
 

One of the hottest new bands around, The Naked and Famous from New Zealand, released their debut album, ‘Passive Me, Aggressive You’, on Fiction Records earlier this month. And I’m sure you’ve heard their radio hit ‘Young Blood’. Here’s the more chilled out version of the song, remixed by none other than White Sea, the current nom de plume of Morgan Kibby (M83). It’s so chill, the almost choir-like vocals at the start remind me of the intro to Madonna’s ‘Like a Prayer’. Listen and download the track below.

MP3(s) of the Day #312: OMD

 
By on Monday, 21st March 2011 at 10:00 am
 

Even if you’re not a synth geek, you have to respect OMD as trailblazers for their contributions to the early days of mainstream electronic music. If I’ve whet your appetite for the band via my review of their show at the 9:30 earlier this month, check out these remixes of tunes from their most recent album, ‘History of Modern’. French Horn Rebellion interpret ‘If You Want It’, Krystal Klear remix the title track from the album and self-admitted OMD fanatics Monarchy try their hand at remixing ‘Sister Mary Says’. Stream and download these remixes below.

 

MP3(s) of the Day #311: Frankmusik

Wow, it’s been a long time since we’ve heard from Vincent Frank (aka Frankmusik), hasn’t it? If you’ve been keeping an eye on his Twitter, you know he’s been living the jetsetting life, heading off to Germany next week. Hello.

But he hasn’t been lazy in his time away from the music media spotlight. This week he made public – and for free download too! – two new tracks, ‘Right or Wrong’ and ‘Friends Like This’. I’m guessing these will appear on his sophomore album purported to be released this year, ‘Do It in the AM’ (no confirmed release date yet). He announced the free downloads with the headline “Dark Pop Has Arrived”.

It’s up to you if you agree. Grab the new songs from Frankmusik here.

 

MP3(s) of the Day #310: Fight Like Apes

 
By on Thursday, 17th March 2011 at 10:00 am
 

Dublin punk poppers Fight Like Apes will be releasing a new album, ‘The Body of Christ and the Legs of Tina Turner’, on 25 April, and before that, a single titled ‘Jenny Kelly’ on 4 April.

In celebration of their upcoming releases (and fortuitously, we’re posting this on St. Patrick’s Day!), the band are offering up for listening and/or downloading three tracks they recently recorded live at a in-store at Tower Records Dublin. They are ‘Hoo Ha Henry’, ‘Poached Eggs’, and ‘Come On, Let’s Talk About Our Feelings’, and they’re all on the new album. Stream and download them to your heart’s content below.

Fight Like Apes go out on the road in the UK this spring, beginning on the 1st of May at Glasgow’s legendary King Tuts. They will also make an appearance at Live at Leeds on the 30th of April. For all their tour information, go here.

 

MP3 of the Day #309: Crystal Fighters

 
By on Wednesday, 16th March 2011 at 10:00 am
 

At the moment I’m addicted to Spanish band Crystal Fighters‘ song ‘At Home’. Here’s a more tribal sounding remix of the song, reimagined by French producers and DJs Berou and Canblaster. It’ll blow your mind.

The band are playing a couple dates in the UK this month, starting tonight at London Heaven:

Wednesday 16th March 2011 – London Heaven
Thursday 17th March 2011 – Bristol Fleece and Firkin
Saturday 19th March 2011 – Glasgow Captain’s Rest
Tuesday 22nd March 2011 – Brighton Audio
Wednesday 23rd March 2011 – Birmingham HMV Institute
Friday 25th March 2011 – Leeds Mine
Saturday 26th March 2011 – Liverpool Kazimier

 

MP3 of the Day #308: exlovers

 
By on Tuesday, 15th March 2011 at 10:00 am
 

Here’s a free download to exlovers‘s b-side to their latest single ‘Blowing Kisses’. It’s called ‘Moth-eaten Memories’ and to be honest, I like this a whole lot better than its A-side – brash and more in your face. Stream and download it below.
