Bleech are a three piece grunge band from London, comprising of sisters Jen O’Neill (vocals/guitar/piano) and Katherine O'Neill and Matt Bick (drums). I've blogged about them before so rather than repeat myself, I'll just let you know that hot of the heels of their first album 'Nude', the band are working on their second album 'Humble Sky'. What we have right here is the first single 'Not Like You' which they have put up as a free download. Get your copy below, it's only one click away.
This is a track from Kate Nash that was written and recorded in less than 24 hours. She's put it up as a free download whilst she's on tour. The video can be seen here. It's resulted in a polarized opinion from her fanbase, the official video on YouTube has 1,422 likes and 1,381 dislikes. Many liken it to the music to Riot Grrrl groups such as Bikini Kill and Le Tigre with a big lump of Hole thrown in. Have a listen and see what you make of it all. On her tumblr My Ignorant Youth, Kate has said that she'll leave this up as a free download whilst she's away on her current tour, so if you do like what you hear, get to it.
Bleech are an exciting three piece from London consisting of sisters Jen and Katherine, as well as drummer Matt. They started out in 2008 (that's when they created their facebook page) and I've got a couple of their singles that they put out in 2009 on Juno records, namely 'Is It True That Boys Don't Cry' and 'The Worthing Song'. Since then, they've put out an ep (Deadhead), been endorsed by Kangol and a full length LP called 'Nude' in 2011. So far this year they've continued to play all over the place, including the mighty Now We Are festival where I was working and managed to film them (only the one song though) and they were a lovely bunch. They're having an album launch at The Sunflower Lounge in Birmingham on Saturday 2nd July and releasing their new single 'Adrenalin Junkie' was released (into the wild) yesterday (Monday 28th May) and their album is coming out on Monday 4th June, perfectly in time for the Royal Jubilee celebrations. Make sure you get their previous single for free by clicking below.
Note: This is a wav file so you'll want to convert it to an mp3 once you've got it.
They used to practice in my basement and look at them now. They're a local Worcester 3-piece noisy outfit, a bit grunge, a bit punk rock, a little bit way, a little bit wah and coming to a venue near you. They say their personal influences include; The Pixes, Led Zepplin, Black Flag, Sound Garden, Iggy and the Stooges, Sonic Youth, Fugazi, Beat Happening, The Velvet Underground, Mudhoney, Love Battery and Nirvana. Really, you don't need to know that, it's just a good way to pad this out and make it look like I've written more than I have. Craig's putting on a gig at The Brewery Tap on Thursday 17th April and The Rusty Knives will be there playing with Ria, whom (if you're reading this in chronological order) you'll find in the post below.
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.
