Free Music Good Friday~!
Bringing together Marilyn Manson, Django Django, Counting Crows and other bands that aren't so fond of alliteration...
The Hot Press Newsdesk, 05 Apr 2012
Yes, yes, it's a day early but is that such a terrible thing? As our readers prepare for a day of alcohol-free piety – personally, we’re planning to don horse hair shirts and self-flagellate every hour, on the hour – Hot Press is delighted to bring you a special Free Music Good Friday (On A Thursday)
Never have so many songs of love, devotion and inspiration been assembled in the one place.
First to our Dutch friends 3voor12.vpro.nl/luisterpaal/albums.html who have new album streams from Black Dice, Sleepy Sun, Lightships, Bettie Serveert, Alabama Shakes, De La Soul and Clark (no relation) plus Gemma Hayes’ 2011 Let It Break collection, which is being released this month in the lowlands.
Over at npr.org/series/98679384/first-listen you can cop an earful of Bonnie Raitt, Amadou & Mariam and M. Ward who’s A Wasteland Companion is getting some serious airplay this week in HP Towers.
Not to be outdone music.aol.com/new-releases-full-cds/spinner#/1 has Paul Van Dyk, Ian Anderson, Chase & Status, Wilson Phillips, Firehose, David Sylvian, Chantal Claret and – swoon! – Breton among its streamable treats.
soundcloud.com/logikparty/sets/oh-cult?utm_source=soundcloud&utm_campaign=share&utm_medium=raw&utm_content=http://soundcloud.com/logikparty/sets/oh-cult is home to a full stream of Dublin electro-funk punks Logikparty’s new album, Oh Cult!. Older members of Team Hot Press have been heard to mutter “The Slits”, “Delta Five” and “The Mo-dettes” while listening to its bounteous delights.
Soon to stream on hotpress.com, The Riptide Movement’s Keep On Keepin’ On album is trailed by the rather gorgeous ‘Thieves In The Gallery’ and its equally rosemantic period drama vid. We never knew that Mal and the boys were such sensitive souls! Read lots about them in our next issue.
