MP3(s) of the Day #333: James Yuill

 
By on Wednesday, 4th May 2011 at 10:00 am
 

‘Crying for Hollywood’, a James Yuill track that is fast-paced but for some reason sounds pretty laid back, seems to be an odd choice for a remix, considering it’s already electronic-y to begin with. But DJ Shir Khan and Grown Men (aka Al Doyle and Felix Martin of Hot Chip, under the guise of a new DJ / production team) have taken the song from Yuill’s LP ‘Movement in a Storm’ and given it their own personal stamps. The DJ Shir Khan version is decidedly tropical, and the Grown Men one is decidedly more sexy. Listen to and download either or both below.

 

MP3 of the Day #332: Anni Rossi

I had the pleasure seeing 4AD signing Anni Rossi twice in 2009: once, opening for Noah and the Whale in May, and then the next month with Camera Obscura. What really impressed me was how much presence she had onstage with only her voice and viola.

This time around on her new album ‘Heavy Meadow’, Rossi’s brought in – gasp! – electronics. Enter an entirely different sound – and her cover of ‘Are You That Somebody?’ by Aaliyah. While there’s no way to trump the late, great r&b singer, this version pays respect to the original by keeping the sexy vibe going while allowing Rossi to spread her wings. Listen to and download it below.

 

MP3 of the Day #331: Art Brut

Art Brut‘s fourth album, ‘Brilliant! Tragic!’ will be out on 23 May. In advance of the album release, they’re being awfully nice and giving away the first single from the album. You’ve probably heard ‘Lost Weekend’ already on the radio, but now you listen to it and download it below.

MP3 of the Day #330: Carl Barat

 
By on Wednesday, 27th April 2011 at 10:00 am
 

Carl Barat will be releasing a new EP next week (the 2nd of May) called ‘Death Fires Burn at Night’. We’ve been given the go-ahead to offer this song as a free download. Called ‘This is the Song’, it’s a far cry from his Libertines/Dirty Pretty Things work, but in a good way. Tender and heartfelt, listen and download it below.

 

MP3(s) of the Day #329: The Looks

 
By on Friday, 22nd April 2011 at 10:00 am
 

Dublin band the Looks (not to be confused with the Dutch band of the same name) are giving away their most recent second double A-side single – ‘Cinema Screen / Screwdriver’. ‘Screwdriver’ is more intense, while ‘Cinema Screen’ sounds more laid-back. Help yourself to the two tracks below.

 

MP3 of the Day #328: Emmy the Great

 
By on Thursday, 21st April 2011 at 10:00 am
 

Emmy the Great is gearing up to release her second fulll album, ‘Virtue’, on the 13th of June. To celebrate this she’s giving away the track ‘A Woman, A Woman, Century of Sleep’ from it. You can listen to the song and download it below.
