Friday Freebies

Mitchell Museum
As you might have gathered I have a lotta love for the 'Museum, so when it came to this weeks FF's this one went straight to the top of the pile. In anticipation of the release of their debut album, ‘The Peters Port Memorial Service’ they have decided to put a bunch a few old tracks out on a little 6 track EP called “We lost 1st prize”. As if that wasn't amazing enough they're giving it all away for free on their Bandcamp.
Mitchell Museum with zeez tracks you are really spoiling us!

The Late Call
'Born in Germany, currently based in Stockholm, and having cut his teeth on the live circuit in Edinburgh whilst studying here, you could say the Late Call (aka Johannes Meyer) is a truly international artist'. The band have a free MP3 of their song 'Linnea' available to download over at Tapete Records. If you like what you hear then you you can catch The Late Call tonight at the Wee Red Bar in Edinburgh or tomorrow in Glasgow at the Flying Duck.
