FREE MUSIC MONDAY
Do not adjust your sets. Normal service has resumed...
The Hot Press Newsdesk, 28 Nov 2011
Yes, yes, we know it’s Monday but an almost fatal outbreak of man flu rendering us weak as kittens meant it wasn’t possible to bring you Free Music Friday before the weekend.
We’ve now heroically risen from our sickbeds and kick off our latest orgy of freebieness with Aleister X’s Black Skull Music Mixtape Vol. 1, which resides at aleisterx.bandcamp.com
A completely bonkers affair that features Andrew WK as his co-conspirator, the X-man samples Bob Dylan, The Eagles and Neil Hamburger along the way.
Talking of the boy Wilkes Krier, let us point you in the direction of two must-watch videos of his:
Our favourite pharmaceutically-inclined South Londoners Alabama 3 trail their Shoplifting 4 Jesus album with the fab ‘Facebook.Con’, which can be found at soundcloud.com/alabama-3-1/09-facebook-con
See Music News for details of their pop-up acoustic show in Kilmainham.
Forget the pyramids and Pippa O’Connor and Brian Ormond getting their own telly show, one of life’s greatest mysteries is why Tuung aren’t as big as their fellow nu folkies Mumford & Sons and Noah & The Whale. Two of the standouts from their This Is Tuung… Live From The BBC album are streaming at soundcloud.com/fulltimehobby/sets/this-is-tunng-live-from-the-1
Bah humbug merchants should go immediately to soundcloud.com/pias/gruff-rhys-slashed-wrists-this/s-m9afk where the Super Furry Animal offers up a taster from his Atheist Xmas EP.
Ahead of the mooted Drake, Florence and The xx collaboration, Ms. Welsh covers ‘Take Care’ at www.covermesongs.com/MP3s/News1111/28TakeCare.mp3 for the British Broadcasting Corporation.
Sometimes we can be a little slow! Sweet Jane’s gorgeous cover of The Moody Blues’ ‘Nights In White Satin’ has been loitering with intent at soundcloud.com/sweet-jane-free-music/sweet-jane-nights-in-white-satin for almost a year but we’ve only just discovered it.
