Tiny Dragons are a three piece from Brighton. A bit indie rock, a bit disco pop. Have a listen, give it a download, throw a party, get horribly drunk, put it on and pretend you're in an episode of Skins; somewhere in the second season.
Today you can get a free track from The Raveonettes which is taken from their new EP 'Into the Night' which is so new that it's not even coming out until 24th April. That's like a month away, so get on it now. You can stream it first to make sure it's your cup of tea before adding it to your music collection.
Click this link to go to their facebook page. You have to pop your email in to get your free download. The whole thing can be done in 20 seconds.
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.__
__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.
Note: This download is in a .wav format and is 35MB. Not a problem though, you just a free sound converter like Switch, download the song, open your converter, go into the settings and set it to your desired bitrate, drag it on there, click convert and you're good to go. Plus you've now got a sound file converter, they come in pretty handy._
__Put Paloma Faith, Graham Coxon and Bill Ryder-Jones together in a studio and what do you get? Desire. This track was created by this awesome trio as the next in line of exclusive music collaborations, none of which I've actually heard.
In the video Paloma, Graham, Bill and an octopus take you for a ride through the crazy world of Desire. The video is great and as far as I'm concerned, Paloma can do no wrong. I've popped the video here to save you having to click around trying to find it, it's right here, and it's pretty awesome.
I've realised the majority of the artists I'm highlighing/showcasing/what-have-you are female so try to help balance it a little, here's a random one for you to try on for size.
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.
