MP3 of the Day #337: The Static Jacks

By on Wednesday, 18th May 2011 at 10:00 am

Last year I saw the Static Jacks open for two massive bands: the Futureheads and Biffy Clyro (on Biffy’s first North American headlining tour). I was impressed with them then, and I am impressed with them now: the high energy New Jersey band have been signed to Fenway Recordings, the American home of the Cribs and Doves. I couldn’t be more chuffed for them.

Their debut album, ‘If You’re Young’, will be out this summer, and as a taster, the band are giving away the track ‘Girl Parts’ away for free. Listen to and download it below.


MP3 of the Day #336: The Vaccines

By on Monday, 16th May 2011 at 10:00 am

The Vaccines are offering up a free download of a live version of their track ‘Norgaard’, just by signing up for their newsletter. Visit their Web site to get it.


MP3 of the Day #335: Van Susans

By on Monday, 9th May 2011 at 10:00 am

Bromley, London’s Van Susans will be releasing their debut on 23 May on Beatnik Geek Records. In advance of that, the band are giving away a remix of their track ‘Bones’, a single we reviewed in January (read the review here). Listen to it and download it for free below.


MP3(s) of the Day #334: The Twilight Sad

By on Thursday, 5th May 2011 at 10:00 am

Scotland’s the Twilight Sad are giving away an entire acoustic EP. The EP includes ‘The Wrong Car’ 12″ (released last autumn) and songs from their last full-length, ‘Forget The Night Ahead’.

What’s the catch? You just need to sign up for their mailing list in the widget below.


MP3(s) of the Day #333: James Yuill

By on Wednesday, 4th May 2011 at 10:00 am

‘Crying for Hollywood’, a James Yuill track that is fast-paced but for some reason sounds pretty laid back, seems to be an odd choice for a remix, considering it’s already electronic-y to begin with. But DJ Shir Khan and Grown Men (aka Al Doyle and Felix Martin of Hot Chip, under the guise of a new DJ / production team) have taken the song from Yuill’s LP ‘Movement in a Storm’ and given it their own personal stamps. The DJ Shir Khan version is decidedly tropical, and the Grown Men one is decidedly more sexy. Listen to and download either or both below.


MP3 of the Day #332: Anni Rossi

By on Tuesday, 3rd May 2011 at 10:00 am

I had the pleasure seeing 4AD signing Anni Rossi twice in 2009: once, opening for Noah and the Whale in May, and then the next month with Camera Obscura. What really impressed me was how much presence she had onstage with only her voice and viola.

This time around on her new album ‘Heavy Meadow’, Rossi’s brought in – gasp! – electronics. Enter an entirely different sound – and her cover of ‘Are You That Somebody?’ by Aaliyah. While there’s no way to trump the late, great r&b singer, this version pays respect to the original by keeping the sexy vibe going while allowing Rossi to spread her wings. Listen to and download it below.
