(SXSW 2013 flavoured!) MP3(s) of the Day #739: The 1975

By on Wednesday, 27th February 2013 at 10:00 am

I’m excited. The 1975 from Manchester are coming to my town 2 weeks after SXSW 2013. (We profiled them in the UK electronic acts chapter of the TGTF Guide to SXSW 2013.) When they are in Washington, they will be playing DC9, where Delphic made their local debut in 2010. Synthesiser band vs. synthesiser band…should be interesting if the 1975′s set will rival the Delphs’… But I digress…

The purpose of today’s MP3 of the Day post? The 1975 are giving away a collection of remixes based around their last EP ‘Sex’, which include previously revealed remixes by Ryan Hemsworth, Hackman and Andrea, plus two previously unheard remixes from Blue Sky Black Death and Plan. Listen to and download the Blue Sky Black Death remix for free below, and you can grab the whole load of remixes for free in exchange for your email address in the widget underneath.

Yesterday we showed you the new video for ‘Chocolate’, the lead song from ‘Music for Cars’, a new EP by the band out on Monday. Catch the 1975 at SXSW on Tuesday 12 March at 11 PM at the British Music Embassy’s home for the week, Latitude 30, and the ASCAP showcase at Red Eyed Fly on Wednesday 13 March, time TBA.


(SXSW 2013 flavoured!) MP3(s) of the Day (and more including an album stream!) #738: Atlas Genius

By on Monday, 18th February 2013 at 10:00 am

I caught Adelaide, Australia’s Atlas Genius open for Wolf Gang at this DC show in October. Consider this your notice ahead of their stratospheric rise to fame, as the band release ‘When It Was Now’ in America on Warner on Tuesday. The band are currently supporting Las Vegas band Imagine Dragons on a North American tour, before they shimmy themselves over to Austin for this year’s SXSW in March. Catch them play KCRW’s showcase at the Haven on Wednesday 13 March and The Warner Sound’s showcase at the Belmont on Thursday 14 March.

They’re offering up an acoustic version of ‘If So’ recorded at Electric Lady Studios absolutely free. There is a great video of the band recording it, which I’ve also included below. I’m in such a giving mood, I dug up two more remixes of their track ‘Backseat’, reimagined by Aislyn and Goldroom, for you to have for free too. And to top it all off, you can have a listen to the whole album before it comes out tomorrow, because I’ve embedded the stream for you. ‘cos sharing is caring, right?

By on Friday, 15th February 2013 at 10:00 am

Brighton’s Cave Painting, who released the fantastic ‘Votive Life’ last year that I only recently got around to reviewing.

Good thing I got that review out this week though, as there’s word they will releasing an EP in America on the 26th of March, called ‘Midnight Love’. (This track was released on their UK debut EP, ‘You’ll Be Running Soon’, in 2011.) But if you’re late to the Cave Painting game, you can grab the mp3 courtesy of Rolling Stone here.

Catch the band showcasing in Austin at SXSW 2013 in March. (We previewed them in the pop UK acts chapter of the TGTF Guide to SXSW 2013.) So far, according to the SXSW Music schedule released yesterday, they have been announced to be playing the British Music Embassy afternoon showcase at Latitude 30 (San Jacinto Boulevard) on Wednesday the 13th of March. More details soon.
