Friday Freebies

Maple Leaves
Glasgow's very own indie poppers the Maple Leaves are giving away a free download of a couple of their songs 'Kirsty'/'Easy Speak' here.
I really really like these guys, I downloaded their songs a few weeks back, then forgot all about them, that was until just a few days ago, the vocals sooth me in a way that I though only Belle & Sebastian could. Lovely lovely stuff.

Pink Pills
Powerpop from Edinburgh, sung in a distinct Scottish accent, they're giving away a free 6 track EP to download. This has already been passed over to Bob, so look out for a better description in his next 62 Word Review post.

Their debut album 'all hour cymbals' was one of my favourite records of 2008 dreamy psychedelic pop at it's very best, and now
in exchange for your e-mail address you can download a copy of their new single 'Ambling Alp' for free here.

There Will Be Fireworks
How they've no been snapped up yet is still a mystery to me, just in case you've missed them so far, then now is the time to rectify this. All you have to do is send an email to therewillbefireworks@hotmail.co.uk and they'll send you MP3s of 'Talking Backwards' & 'White Noise on the TV'. If you like what you hear then buy their debut album, you won't regret it.

Shy Child
New York duo Shy Child are giving away free track, 'Criss Cross' taken from their forthcoming album 'Liquid Love'. I caught these guys a few years ago at French Music Festival, Trans Musicales', and mightily impressed I was too. Their scuzzy synth-pop won me over on that cold December night, have a listen and see if they warm your heart too, download Criss Cross' here.

Their track 'Man Of Letters' was featured on Vic Galloways Radio One Show's 'Back Of The Net' part of the show which means it will be available as a free download for the next 7 days so grab it free while you can for free here
