Friday Freebies

Silver Columns
I am not sure if it is still hush as to who Silver Columns actually, in case it is let's just say that they're two well known faces from Fence Collective. More importantly what you need to know is that they sound amazing, imagine Jimmy Somerville fronting Hot Chip and you're half way there. Their debut single, 'Brow Beaten' is free to download over at the NME, while you can grab a copy of their remix of Peter, Bjorn & John's 'It Don't Move Me' from their website.

Macabre Scene
I know I mentioned these guys earlier in the week, but what I didn't mention was that they are currently giving away two newly recorded songs Pride of Lions and We Eat Light
for free. If you like your post punk then I strongly recommend you check these guys out, to be honest this music isn't really my cup of tea, but there's something about Macarbe Scene that just works for me, I have been hammering their songs a fair bit this week, I hope you end up doing the same. Also, while you are at it, check out their cover of The Smiths 'Last night I dreamt somebody loved me' recorded by the lovely Glasgow Podcarters, cracking stuff.

The Unwinding Hours
From the ashes of Aerogramme comes the Unwinding Hours, and if the songs posted on their myspace are anything to go by then their debut album due for release next year will be an absolute belter. If you don't believe me then head over to The Popcop as he's got an exclusive free download of 'Knut', I strongly urge you to check it out.

Beach House

The American dream pop duo are giving away single 'Norway' from their forthcoming album 'Teen Dream' and all you have to do is go to their homepage.

Julia & the Doogans
If you like your music to be soothing,with a touch of twee 'ness then Julia & the Doogans may well be your 'new favourite band'. Unfortunately though you'll have to wait till next year until you they will actually release anything, however, if you sign up to their mailing list thenyou should receive some free stuff in your mailbox this weekend.

Adam Stafford
A late addition to this weeks Friday Freebies comes from Adam Stafford from Y'All is Fantasy Island, he is giving away his official debut solo album Awnings for free here.
Thanks to Jim from Aye Tunes for the heads up on this one.


  1. A late entry - Adam Stafford from Y'all Is Fantasy Island has stuck out a free album here - http://www.wisebloodindustries.com/releases/awnings/

  2. Great idea and superb choice of tracks. I'm really looking forward to hearing the new Beach House in particular.

    Now if only I could download/listen to mp3s at work my life would be sorted!
