By on Thursday, 10th March 2011 at 10:00 am
 

Danish duo the Raveonettes will be releasing their next album, ‘Raven in the Grave’, in early April. To talk it up prior to its release, the band are offering up the album track ‘Forget That You’re Young’ for free download. It’s a sweet yet crunchy piece of pop to sink your teeth into. Grab it below.

 

MP3 of the Day (and more!) #304: Matthew P

 
By on Wednesday, 9th March 2011 at 10:00 am
 

Matthew P is a new singer/songwriter I’ve just gotten wind of. He’s from Suffolk, and judging from the title track of his new EP, ‘The Breakfast Song’, he has a laidback, Jack Johnson kind of approach. But I get the feeling from his quirky lyrics – reminiscent of Darwin Deez, just less wacky – that he must be a completely disarming fellow, more boy next door.

Listen to / download ‘The Breakfast Song’ and watch the promo video for it below; I almost mistook the Asda where this was filmed for an American Costco warehouse supermarket. Here’s Matthew talking a bit about the video:

I woke up hungover in Lowestoft one morning and I had to go shopping for breakfast, so me and my mate Trigg swung into Asda and had a little shop whilst I mimed to the song. It was a really fun morning until the giant security guard cornered us and warned us he was gonna have to wipe all the footage!!! We were gutted but I showed him what we had done and the tune and he decided he liked it! So he let us back in, so we grabbed another trolley, and all we had left to get was the brown sauce. Good times.

‘The Breakfast EP’ will be released in April on Fiction Records.

 

MP3 of the Day (and more!) #303: Wolf Gang

 
By on Tuesday, 8th March 2011 at 10:00 am
 

Wolf Gang‘s tune ‘Dancing with the Devil’ get the hip hop treatment in this remix by the Shoes featuring cocknbullkid and Mz Brat. The beats make the track sexy. Nice one.

You can also watch the new video for ‘Dancing with the Devil’ below (the original single to be released the 21st of March). Hmm. I wasn’t a fan of this song right away as I was with ‘Lions in Cages’, and to be honest, I like the hip hop remix better. This promo, in stark contrast to the video for ‘Lions in Cages’, is a performance video. In multiple senses of the term. You’ll see what I mean when you watch it below.
