Everyone likes free music, right?
If you are everyone you might be interested in this then.
Glasgow based label Little Rock Records are celebrating their second birthday birthday by giving away a ton of music.
In a giveaway aptly titled TOO MUCH MUSIC they’ve put up 14 free singles for download. Each single comes with two tracks and artwork from some of the best up and coming artists in the Scottish alternative elecronica scene. It’s pretty eclectic, covering disco, ambient, breakcore, jazz, techno, wonky hip-hop and more.
Frankly, that’s a scene that is way out of my area of expertise, so I won’t even attempt to advise what to download from what’s available. At the lost cost price of FREE I’ll be diving in and checking out what’s on offer though!
Here’s the PR blurb about Little Rock Records, just for good measure
Inspired by Leipzig’s Jahtari netlabel, Little Rock Records was officially launched on 07/07/07 with 7 digital 7 inch releases, with an aim to represent the best in Glasgow (and Scotland’s) alternative electronica scene. Since then the label has released music by Tayside Mental Health, Eyes, The Niallist, Copyleft and The Evil Eye – not to mention putting out the “quasi-notorious” (Plan B), “dance-music-you-can’t-dance-to” compilation/confrontation that is NORAVE.
The label now hosts a weekly radio show on Radio Magnetic with guest slots form the likes of local heroes Jackmaster, Killer Kitsch, Voltergeist,. Frogpocket, Animal Farm and more. There’s also occasional Little Rock parties in the Glasgow area, including the annual Halloween Rock’n’Shock bash, this year celebrating its sixth birthday with very special guests The Phantom Band.
