MP3 of the Day #788: The 1975

By on Tuesday, 5th November 2013 at 10:00 am

Fancy something free from The 1975? You do You’re in luck, then. We’ve got the Knocks‘ remix of ‘Girls’ for you this Tuesday morning. Listen to and grab it for your very own from the Soundcloud widget below.

In case you’ve been living under a rock or have forgotten the brilliance that is the new ‘Girls’ video, watch it in this previous Video of the Moment.


MP3 of the Day #787: Shearwater and Clinic

By on Friday, 11th October 2013 at 10:00 am

Here’s an unlikely collaboration…or is it? Austin band Shearwater (pictured above) teamed up with Liverpool’s Clinic to record a new reimagining of ‘Fucked Up Life’, which was originally written and performed by Denton, TX band – and Sub Pop labelmates – The Baptist Generals.

The song will appear on Shearwater’s lovingly conceived new album out on the 25th of November, ‘Fellow Travelers’, a collection of reworkings of other bands’ songs and collaborations including this track. And it’s Friday, so we’re giving it away. Because we’re nice like that. (Not really. It’s Shearwater’s people that want you to have it.) Either way, listen to and grab it for your very own below.


MP3 of the Day #786: Factory Floor

By on Thursday, 3rd October 2013 at 10:00 am

London’s Factory Floor released their self-titled debut album on the legendary DFA Records in early September. Rolling Stone is giving away album track ‘Turn It Up’ for free, and you can get it here.


MP3 of the Day #785: Lucy Rose

By on Friday, 27th September 2013 at 10:00 am

Somehow I think it’s unlikely you’ve not heard ‘Middle of the Bed’ by Lucy Rose before. But, in the off chance you haven’t, or you’ve been too skint to get it or the accompanying album, you’re in luck. With ‘Like I Used To’ starting to get traction in America, American music mag Rolling Stone is offering the track up as a free mp3. Get it here.

Cheryl just caught Lucy opening for City and Colour last week in Washington; read her review here.


MP3 of the Day (and more!) #784: Richard Judge

By on Thursday, 26th September 2013 at 10:00 am

Following the break-up of his band I Dream In Colour earlier this year, IDIC’s frontman Richard Judge is set to release a solo EP, as yet untitled, early next year. In advance of that release, Judge is previewing two of his songs, ‘Foundations’ and ‘Show Me Love’, via SoundCloud.

‘Foundations’ begins, aptly, with the simple foundation of an acoustic guitar serving to showcase Judge’s dynamic singing ability. After the first refrain, backing vocals and driving rhythms begin to build momentum behind the repetition of the anthemic chorus, which is sure to echo in your memory. A free download of the song is available in the Soundcloud widget below. If you like ‘Foundations’, you won’t want to miss ‘Show Me Love,’ available to stream directly below the first song in audio form, as well as to be listened to live as a gondola acoustically, performed by the man himself.

MP3 of the Day #783: Frankmusik

By on Friday, 13th September 2013 at 10:00 am

I generally can’t stand artists doing Beatles covers. However, I do make exceptions. Vincent Frank, aka Frankmusik, has taken the early Fab Four’s single ‘From Me to You’ and put his unique spin on it. Have a listen to it below and if you like it, it’s free to download.
