I really meant to post this ages agao, but in the clutter that is my mind it got buried under something useless, so please accept my belated apologies for not sharing this with you a fair bit sooner. KPK has posted a free download of his debut EP over at their Bandcamp page.
I have been listening to this a fair bit this week, I hope you'll like it too.

Just head on over to her site which site is due to go live today where you should be able to grab yourself a free download (if it's not up and running just yet, check back a bit later). If you like what you hear and you live in Scotland then make sure you tune into 'The Hour Show' at 5pm tonight as she'll be doing a wee interview and playing the aforementioned song.

Holiday Records
If you read this blog, then there is probably quite high chance that you enjoy a bit of indie pop, and as you're reading this post you must also enjoy the odd freebie, in which case Holiday Records is for you. They're a new American indie pop label that give away free music every Friday. Wish I'd thought of that....

Certified Banger
I am clueless when it come to Hip Hop and the like, especially anything from this wee country, The Young Father are pretty much the only Scottish act I could name. So as you might imagine I was a bit surprise when I got an email about the "Best Scottish, Welsh and Irish Hip Hop" it's a a compilation of stuff from Jee4ce & Certifiedbanger.co.uk (no, me neither) called "Certified Celtic Connection" which you can download for free here.
