Ah Jenny, where to start? If you don't know already, she's kind of a big deal. It's her album launch/birthday party double whammy celebration next weekend. Here's a brief bit of the write up I gave her for the next issue of SLAP Magazine. 'Rather than filling your living room with balloons and having some friends round on your birthday, Jenny Hallam is releasing her first album, putting on a gig, organising coach trips to London and back for a mega-party – and you’re invited! At just 19 (at the time of print) Jenny has already played the likes of Westfest, Mappfest, the Pyramid Party and most recently The Colwall Family festival. She moved to London to attend university and wasted no time in making music connections down there and becoming a regular at several open mic nights before being noticed and offered gigs around the area. She’s even supported Placebo’s drummer’s band Planes but she still found the time in her busy schedule to come back and play my birthday party in November, something which I’ll be eternally grateful for.' So, with that in mind, here's a nice little bit of promo for her. Jenny's fantastic album (I know, I've already heard it) is out next week but you can get a sneak peak of it with a different arrangement of BBQ Sauce. Enjoy.
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.
