click here and download this fantastic song. And you should definitely watch the video for Tommy Sheridan too. Madness. This only has 23 downloads so far, which is hopefully because most people already have it on the album, but c'mon, let's see if we can max it out.'By day we are Bruce, Mandy and Neil. By night we are the deadly spazz-jazz ninjas known as Super Adventure Club!' - I saw them in The Firefly back in November 2009, a couple of days after my birthday, what an absolute treat. They were utterly amazing, after their gig I brought up one of everything they had on their merch table and had a chatted with them for ages and they were all lovely people. This is definitely for fans of Frank Zappa and King Crimson. Again, click where it says SoundCloud to go to the songs page, or just
Saying Ellie Goulding's album 'Lights' provided the soundtrack to my summer in 2010 might sound as naff as saying 'naff but it's true. There was something about it that had that instant replayability factor, whether that lay in the songwriting or production or both was hard to say. What I can say with all certainty though is that this is a beautiful little gem of a rare song that I bet you haven't heard before. So download it straight away and make up for lost time.
I first saw Kate McGill playing in the Caffe Nero tent at the Cornbury festival in Oxford last year. She made a YouTube channel where she uploaded videos of herself covering popular songs on her acoustic guitar, by artists such as Adele, The Killers, Mumford and Sons, Paramore, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Rihanna and many many more. I'm not copying and pasting this from wikipedia, I've seen all these videos at the time. Her YouTube channel has had 29 million views, that's just crazy. Below is just a clip, limited to 100 downloads. They usually get snapped up pretty quickly by her army of fans so get in there on the quick while the going is good.

Ah, just when you thought it couldn't get any better, Richard Clarke's only gone and got himself a band! But don't worry, they compliment his wonderful song-smithery perfectly and I couldn't picture any other arrangement of musicians working so well. They've got a new album out which consists of reworked classics and new gems just waiting to be discovered.
Their new album can be brought or even just streamed from their BandCamp page.

Guillemots are a London-based avant-garde pop and indie rock band. Really? I don't know man, I do like my genres and consider myself pretty damn knowledgeable about ElectroPop and Synth Wave, BritPop, Hip-Hop, Indie and Rock whilst always learning more about Mathcore, Post-Rock, Breakcore and Glitch-Hop. But enough of this showboating, I've listened to a lot of Guillemots to find you, yes you, a free track by them that fits the 'avant-garde pop and indie rock' tag and...I do believe we have a winner.__
Do believe the hype. Lana (or Elizabeth Grant) is a singer/songwriter from Lake Placid, New York, United States. She is known for embellishing her songs and music videos with an eerily nostalgic vibe heavy on Americana themes, including images of surfing, Coney Island, Frank Sinatra, and Marilyn Monroe. Here's a track that she did for a session with 6Music recently.
__The Arcadian Kicks are a Birmingham-based group who have been active for the last few years, making a name for themselves by hosting their own club nights in the city and touring extensively across the country. The band have been working and recording with Mike Chapman, legendary producer of Blondie’s classic albums.This partnership has resulted in two creative, extremely weird and enjoyable studio sessions, and has produced music that’s seen the band take a dramatic step forward from their indie/rock roots into a new, unique sonic realm of rhythm and harmony, delivered with a powerful audacity that is sure to make it hard for music fans everywhere to ignore.

Ruby Rae started as the side project of NYC based pop-punk band The Ex-Debutantes in 2010. Her debut release title "Double Feature" could easily be mistaken for a night at the local drive-in when rock'n'roll still flirted with its honky-tonk roots. The songs 'It Came from the Swamp' and 'Invisible Man' showcase rockabilly inflected instrumentation paired with sinister stories of monsters, love, and guns. This is a demo track from what will hopefully be the first album, there's a Pledge page here, why not have a gander.
Making your music folder better, one song at a time.
_Pretty much everyday I seem to find some amazing exclusive tracks that
some awesome artists are giving away for free as a special one off
promotion. Today, it occured to me that instead of just downloading
them, maybe reposting them on facebook if they're special enough/someone I know and
then moving on, I should start a little music blog on here. Even if it
doesn't last forever, it's still a free song for you each day that it
does! I'd say the character of this blog is mostly electropop and singer/songwriter but I've got plans for mathcore, post-rock and glitch-hop. A lot of these tracks have a download limit of 100 so get in there on the quick. I'd also point out that a lot of the songs will need renaming once you've downloaded them so I'd do them one at a time.
