If you want a free copy of his song 'Hearts & Minds' you have to do something with twitter or facebook, I'll leave you lot to work it out.

Every week I try to find something new for all you hipsters out there (which usually entails me posting some hyped to fuck band on Stereogum/Pitchfork). This week it's a Canadian band called braids, and it's Stereogum doing them the honours. If you want to make sure that you ;loved/hated them first' then you can download their track 'Lemonade' here.
