We haven’t heard anything from alt-rock band Sons and Daughters in a while. Good news: the Glaswegian band have announced they will be releasing their third album, ‘Mirror, Mirror’, on Domino Records on 13 June. As a gift to you, the band are giving away ‘Silver Spell’, a track from the new album, for free. Listen and snag it for your very own below.

 

Bands to Watch #207: Three Blind Wolves

 
By on Monday, 28th March 2011 at 12:00 pm
 

Glasgow has seen a number of indie bands form in the past few years including Glasvegas, Dananananaykroyd and Frightened Rabbit. Now it sees host to something new: Three Blind Wolves, a four piece who state their influences as “the great outdoors” and who write beautiful music. They’ve just signed to Communion Records.

It’s hard to pin this band down to sounding like something. If I were one for pigeonholing I would say that they are a lot like, well, any indie band that has come out of the UK in the last 2 years. But I think I would be selling this band short if I did so. There is something quintessentially different about this band: you can hear a hint of bluegrass, a touch of folk, but overall a hell of a lot of balls. When I first listened to ‘Emily Rose’ (which you can listen to and download for your very own below), I thought to myself, have Mumford and Sons completely changed what they are going for, or have I discovered something very different? With the crest of the new folk phase of last year almost over, maybe Three Blind Wolves have arrived a bit late to latch on to the hype.

They go from sounding a lot like an early Bombay Bicycle Club to sounding like fellow Glaswegians Dananananaykroyd, and that’s just in one song. The use of four-part harmonies are fantastic and really give the music a sense of atmosphere. It’s obvious that this band would not look out of place plying their trade around campfires, or on a stage at Glastonbury. That said, there is still a long way for this band to go, they definitely need exposure and to get that they may have to go down the Mumford and Sons route of massive choruses and banjos! What is in store for them next? Well, that’s for us to wait and see.

MP3 of the Day (and more!) #315: Hugh Laurie

 
By on Thursday, 24th March 2011 at 10:00 am
 

This is definitely unusual for TGTF, just saying this ahead of time. You know him for his roles in Blackadder and Jeeves and Wooster. And apparently he is the highest paid actor in an American television program for his leading role in medical drama House. But this spring Hugh Laurie will be stepping out in fine fashion, releasing a New Orleans blues-style album of covers called ‘Let Them Talk’ on the 9th of May.

Yesterday, Laurie played his first live gig to promote the album and a small number of headlining shows in Britain (including the Cheltenham Jazz Festival on 2 May and London’s Union Chapel on 4 May). The gig was streamed live on the Guardian’s Web site and we’ve been told the performance will be back online Friday here if you’d like to watch it then. In the meantime, you can listen to and grab the track ‘Guess I’m a Fool’ (originally by famed American blues singer and pianist Memphis Slim) for free from the widget below. Also below is a trailer for the album where Laurie talks about his inspirations for the new project.

MP3 of the Day (and more!) #314: Goldheart Assembly

 
By on Wednesday, 23rd March 2011 at 10:00 am
 

Hands down, I prefer Goldheart Assembly over Fleet Foxes. If you agree with me wholeheartedly, or perhaps you think I’m mental and wondering what I’m going on about, just have a listen to Goldheart’s newest single, ‘Harvest in the Snow'; they’ve just released a gorgeous video for it. The band is also so kindly offering up the track for free download in exchange for your email address. Cheap as chips, right?
