In anticipation of their forthcoming 7-track EP ‘Zeus’ to be released on 4th of October, British Sea Power wants to give away the title track to you. It’s the first release from the Brighton band since the ‘Man of Aran’ soundtrack album last year and is self-described as ‘a wild and wunderbar-wonky precursor’ to BSP’s fourth album, due in January 2011.
The widget below is not the traditional way we normally offer up mp3s on TGTF, but we couldn’t resist this giveaway. Especially given how rip-roaringly fun this track is.
It’s not every day that you can download an entire album for free, but Texas rockers White Denim are letting you do just that. Out of nowhere, they’ve decided to offer up a new record, ‘Last Day of Summer,’ on their website. Here’s what they had to say about it:
…this record is something we made as a little summer retreat from our ongoing work on the third full length. many of these tunes have been bouncing around since the formation of the band back in 06. we were super pumped to utilize a few fresh and casual musical approaches on this record. we hope that you find something that satisfies you within this body of work. if you enjoy the music and feel compelled to support the group, please notice the support button beneath the download link and the image. we are going to be heading out on the roads this october and would greatly appreciate anything that you would feel comfortable contributing.

By now, I’m sure you’ve heard that Maximo Park‘s frontman Paul Smith has decided to release a solo album. (No official word yet if Maximo has split up, is on hiatus, or what.) Smith’s debut solo effort, ‘Margins’, is set to be released on 11 October in the UK on Smith’s own Billingham Records label. Here’s one track from it, ‘North Atlantic Drift’, that we can offer to you via Rcrdlbl. Is it just me, or does it sound a bit Maximo, ‘Quicken the Heart’-era?
Paul Smith will be touring in support of ‘Margins’ in November and December – more details here.

Here is the suitably anarchist video for Parlovr‘s ‘Pen to the Paper’. Really novel idea for a video: you, dear viewer, are a voyeur into a world of balloons and bonfires, fireworks and flags, all reminiscent of the psychedelic ’60s. Almost. Well, the sentiment is there. Enjoy it below.
