Five Things For Thursday


One of my aims for this year is to stop hearing something I like, thinking “yeah, I like this, must put it on the blog sometime” then completely forgetting to put it on the blog ever. With that in mind then, here’s a handful of music for you with minimal chatter from me, all either free or “pay what you like” to download.

Fat Janitor – Lurk
You always knew the school janitor was up to no good, didn’t you? Well, here’s some proof. Lurk is available to download free from Bandcamp. Play loud.

Aloha Tigers – The Kind of Girl U Like
Ian that used to write Have Fun at Dinner has been talking about this band for as long as I can remember, and is now going one step further by making them the first release on his new tape label, Kirkcudbright Tape Club.
The Kind of Girl U Like is the first single released, free to download.

Hipster Death Squad – Good Times Again
A band that I found through Peenko’s Friday Freebies, Hipster Death Squad have been firing out a fair amount of new songs since I first started stalking following them. They’ve just released a new single as a free download from Bandcamp, and I really like this one, so here you go.
<p>&amp;amp;amp;lt;p&amp;amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;lt;p&amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;lt;a href=””&amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;gt;Good Times Again by Hipster Death Squad&amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;lt;/a&amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;lt;/p&amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;amp;lt;/p&amp;amp;amp;gt;</p>

As In Bear – Mr Glued
Last night my readers voted them one of the best new bands in the poll, today a free download arrives in my inbox. That’s what I call good timing.

mi mye – the time and the lonleyness
I had mi mye on the Advent Calendar last month, along with a mental note to myself to keep an eye out for more from them. Turns out I didn’t have to wait very long. They say that the time and the lonleyness, their new album, isn’t officially out until February, but you can download it right now from Bandcamp, so why don’t you?

    That Fat Janitor thing… I don’t what it is but I do know that I enjoy it. If enjoy is the right word for it.

    Yeah, I’m not totally sure enjoy is the right word, but I really like it.
