The Dig, who have previously opened for Editors and the Joy Formidable in America last year, are offering up the track below for free download. Called ‘For All Your Sins’, it’s a stellar track from their debut album released last year, ‘Electric Toys’. It shows the softer side of this indie rock band from Brooklyn. The song also featured on this week’s episode of ‘Gossip Girl’ – nice song placement!

In honour of its being released into the wilderness, they’re offering the track ‘Dying’ as a free download in exchange for an email address. You can grab the free download below. ‘In the Dark’ is now available from ATO Records. The band will be going on tour in England with Dead Confederate in late February, details here.

It was about a year ago when we profiled Tape the Radio from Deptford, London, as a Bands to Watch. They are about to tour next month as support for the Duke Spirit, but more importantly, they are set to release their debut album in April. As a taster, they’re offering the track below, ‘Heartache & Fear’, as a free download. Dark, rough around the edges…I like this one.

New York City’s Holy Ghost! is gearing up to release their self-titled debut album in April on DFA Records. I really enjoyed the taster EP they released last year, ‘Static on the Wire’ (review here), so I’m very excited for this whole album guaranteed to be chock full of mad dance beats.
To get things rolling (or maybe I should say jumping?), they’re offering up a free download of one of the new tracks, ‘Do It Again’. Listen to it below. If you like what you hear, head on over to their official Web site to grab the track for your collection.
