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.
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.
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.
Savoir Adore‘s ‘Regalia’ – a track on their current album ‘Our Nature’ – has been remixed by Lovelife, aka Leonard Newell’s strange post-Viva Brother pop project. Sufficiently intrigued? Get it from here.
