The Hot Press Newsdesk, 06 Jul 2012
As the “Did Ian Brown’s cat-strangling ruin last night’s Roses gig?” debate rages, Free Music Friday has come up with an extra special selection of tuneage for your weekend – and far beyond – listening pleasure.
Our journey starts as it often does over at 3voor12, where Dirty Projectors, Dusted, Dayba Kurtz, Sonny & The Sunsets, Shonen Knife, Lianne La Havas, Delicate Steve, Digitalism and BEAK, the new outfit featuring Portishead’s Geoff Barrow, all have new albums a-streaming. Check them out here.
http://music.aol.com/new-releases-full-cds/#/1 adds The Amazing Spider-Man OST, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter OST, the rapper Prodigy, Rhonda Vincent, Dub Pistols and The Answer to the mix while http://music.aol.com/new-releases-full-cds/spinner#/1 is home to Dan Le Sac, Maximo Park, Teenage Bottlerocket, Joshua Hyslop and Stevie Jackson streams.
Next to Newton Faulkner – a serious rival to Dave Grohl in the Nicest Man In Rock stakes – who subjected himself to a hotpress.com interview and acoustic session yesterday afternoon in The Workman Club's new Vintage Room. The resulting footage should be with you by lunchtime.
His very fine Write It On Your Skin album is also streaming at http://www.nme.com/news/newton-faulkner/64701.
There’s quality mixtape-ry to be had at http://prettymuchamazing.com/mp3/download-childish-gambino-royalty-mixtape courtesy of Childish Gambino who throws Ghostface Killah, RZA, Beck and, er, Tina Fey into the fray; Eminem’s bezzie Yeawolf does himself similarly proud at http://www.livemixtapes.com/download/17810/yelawolf_m16_heart_of_dixie.html; and Goyte and Busta Rhymes feature on Akon's http://www.ballerstatus.com/2012/06/30/free-download-akon-konkrete-jungle-mixtape/#.T_CLjMxoqFE offering.
Free Music Friday is delighted to meet the acquaintance of The Sufis, Nashville’s finest purveyors of psychedelic garage rock whose album has been picked up on this side of the Atlantic by Cornershop’s Ample Play label.
