(Great Escape 2011!) MP3 of the Day (and more!) #327: Foster the People

By on Wednesday, 20th April 2011 at 10:00 am

There’s no doubt LA synth band Foster the People wil be playing their hit ‘Pumped Up Kicks’ at the TGTF stage at the Great Escape next month. To get you warmed up for the event, you can listen to a stream of the band playing the song for Los Angeles radio station KROQ last year. But as this is a MP3 of the Day post, you know we are giving away a track. Below you can listen to and download the Speeding Bullet remix of ‘Pumped Up Kicks’ by New York electronic act the Knocks, free with the exchange of your email address. What could be simpler?

So you’ve been hearing us bang on about TGTF’s Great Escape stage and will continue to in the coming weeks leading up the second week of May because…well, we’re pretty excited about the acts we’ve got lined up at Coalition on the night of 14 May! Here’s a great track from one of our four artists,
K.Flay, called ‘Waiting’ that you can listen to and download below. After you hear the song, it should be come crystal clear why she’s been compared to Missy Elliot and Lady Sovereign.

By on Monday, 18th April 2011 at 10:00 am

‘Misfit Sugar’ is the latest release from Islington Boys Club, one of our Bands to Watch in March. They’ve done it right this time, with more fascinating guitar riffs getting stuck in my head. The single was released earlier this month with remixes as B-sides. You can listen to ‘Misfit Sugar’ below and add it to whatever brand of mp3 player of your choosing by click the buttons below.


MP3 of the Day #324: Skint and Demoralised

By on Friday, 15th April 2011 at 10:00 am

Matt Abbott, aka the voice and brains behind Skint and Demoralised, is gearing up for the official release of his second album, ‘The Sporting Life’, coming in late spring. Matt’s feeling rather generous this week and is offering up an absolutely free download of the track ‘Hogmanay Heroes’ from the forthcoming album. It’s got a bit of a folky feeling like Frank Turner, I think? Just a less political: this one’s all about having a good time. Perfect for a Friday, really!

You can get ‘Hogmanay Heroes’ here.


(Great Escape 2011!) MP3 of the Day #323: White Denim

By on Thursday, 14th April 2011 at 10:00 am

White Denim will be headlining TGTF’s stage at the Great Escape this year (more information here). So why not have a listen to their track ‘Anvil Everything’, from their forthcoming album to be released on 6 June in the UK? You can hear and download it below.


MP3 of the Day #322: Is Tropical

By on Wednesday, 13th April 2011 at 10:00 am

I have been keeping my eye on Is Tropical ever since a friend shared ‘Tan Man’ with me on Facebook. ‘The Greeks’ is their newest release and will appearing on their debut album entitled ‘Native To’ (to be released on the 13th of June) and one month earlier on on ‘Kitsune Maison’s 11 Compilation’ (released on the 16th of May). I can’t wait to hear their debut in full! But in the meantime, you can listen to ‘The Greeks’ and download it below.
