|You can pay for things too.|
What delights has the internet thrown at us this week then? Let’s have a look and find out.
Kicking us off this week is something blooming ace, from token English entry Fashoda Crisis. It’s always nice to keep the Southerners involved in things. I kid, I kid. Anyway, the new Fashoda Crisis EP, The Jowls of Justic, is available as a pay what you want download here. Somewhere in the art-rock region, packed with dark wit and social commentary, but far far better sounding than what I just wrote, this gets a big thumbs up from me. Go listen and see what you think for yourself, you do have your own ears after all.
Shh. Vroom vroom. I like a bit of scruffy sounding surf pop, therefor I like Secret Motorbikes. You can too, to help you decide if you want to or not you can grab their Demos 2012 collection, which rounds up an EP and a single, for free here. Is it telling tales if I say that Neil keeps asking them to do one of our gigs and they keep saying no? It is? Forget you read that bit then.
Hunt / Gather
Hunt / Gather’s debut album False Monuments was one of my favourites from last year. Noisy, angry, abrasive and right up my street. If you missed it first time round you can snag a copy now with a pay what you want download here. Play loud.
Lawrence Made Me Cry
Another one of those pesky solo artists with a proper band name, Lawrence Made Me Cry is a lass from Wales, and she has a new single out. Between Destinations is available to download for your choice of price here.
The Ramisco Maki Maki Rocking Horse
Making certain that I can’t fit all the bands included this week into one tweet sized round up comes everyone’s favourite horse with the head of an eagle. I’ve not suddenly had a mental snap, I swear. At least I don’t think I have… Get a free download of Am Twitchin’ here (right click and save as if you have to).
Bottle of Steven
I missed this out in December, and Steven, he of the the “Bottle of” in the name, personally requested pimping, which is always a good way to get included here. Titbits of Turmoil is a wee collection of previously unreleased Bottle of Steven tracks, and you can pay what you want for it here.
