Festive Freebies

I know I said there would be no more Friday Freebies this year, well to get round this I have gone with Festive Freebies as to be honest there are far too many cracking tracks out there that I had to share them.

Kid Canaveral

Having stalked the Canaverals for over a year now, it would be fair to say that I am just ever so slightly excited about their forthcoming album. After listening to their new song 'Good Morning', which they are giving away as a wee taster of what's to come, I think you will be to. Just head on over to their Bandcamp page and download yourself a copy of one of the catchiest pop songs you'll hear all year.

Martin John Henry/De Rosa
The ex-De Rosa frontman has put up a copy of his old band's Christmas variation of one of their songs, 'Under The Stairs (Christmas Reverie)'. You can enjoy this festive treat here

Broken Bells
Broken Bells, the collaboration between Danger Mouse James Mercer, have released their debut single "The High Road" for free and it is available to download here.

Olo Worms
The Fence Collective's Olo Worms are giving away all of their back catalogue for you to download for free, just head over here.

Y’all is Fantasy Island
The greatest band to come from Falkirk since Arab Strap are making a re-appearance in 2010, having been somewhat prolific in 2008 (they released a whopping four albums), 2009 was a fairly quiet year. 2010 looks like they'll be back with a bang, to kick the year off they've put their single 'Play On the Weekend’s Sunny Days' up to download for nada here.

Jack James
Glasgow singer/songwriter Jack James recently launched his debut album, 'Lights off, headphones on', which he's very kindly put out as a free download (although I am pretty sure you can buy a physical copy if you like that sort of thing. You can get yourself a free download here.

The pioneering indie label are giving away a selection of their 'Hottest Acts For 2010' over at the Guardian, their hot tips for this year include Nice Nice, The Hundreds in the Hands and Gonjasufi, check them out here.

Sub Pop release have put a few free downloads showcasing what to expect from their releases in Jan/Feb, just right click and save the link. Here you go; The Album Leaf "Falling From The Sun", Bassekou Kouyate and Ngoni ba "Muscow", Retribution Gospel Choir "Hide It Away", AFCGT "Two-Legged Dog" and Beach House "Norway" (yes I know I have already featured this, but somebody might have missed it, plus it's good enough to feature twice).

Cats and Cats and Cats
The London Post-Rockers are giving away a cop of their festive song '
If I'd had antlers' here.

Julia and the Doogans
If you didn't sign up their mailing list as I recommended a while back, then get your finger oot and you'll get yourself a free MP3 of their song 'Glasgow'. They have also put up a new song called 'Maps of the World' up to download for free, it's only available until Boxing Day, so no dilly dalying about, go get it here.
