Friday Freebies

King Post Kitsch
For any of you that have frequented this blog for a while, you might remember me getting just a tad excited about King Post Kitsch at the start of the year. His self-titled EP, was an absolute cracker, now he's back with his new EP, 'Monomaniac', and once again he's come up with the goods and then some. Just head on over to his Bandcamp page and get downloading, then you'll soon realise why I've been getting myself so excited about.

Edwyn Collins
If you register your email address for Edwyn updates, then in exchange they will send you a download link for the first single and title track from his album, 'Losing Sleep' for free here.

Ryan Joseph Burns
He's a member of the Seventeenth Century (mind I featured them on Wednesday there), he also has does some solo Americana type stuff on his own. If you head over to his Soundcloud page, then you can download a couple of corking wee tracks. He's one talented guy, even if he does spend most of his day in bed - his band mates words, not mine!

Trapped Mice
The Edinburgh folk-rock outfit have a whole host of free stuff up for grabs on their Bandcamp page, if you are looking for somewhere to start then I'd recommend you start with 'Secret Letters', that being said all of these tunes are pretty damn good.

El Guincho
It's been a while since we last heard anything from the Spanish tropical pop artist, well now he's back with new album 'Pop Negro' due out later in the year. As a precursor he's giving away a free download of 'Bombay' which it's taken from.

One week, two Spanish acts, now I think that must be a first on here. This time it's from hot young band Deloran, who's alum 'Subiza' has been somewhat of a revelation this year. If you fancy checking it out then download their song 'Real Love' here.

The Americana band have posted a free download of a live recording of a live set recorded in Nuremburg. Download it here.

The indie pop starlets are the stars of Vic G'a 'Back of the Net' feature this week, so if you fancy checking out their song 'Lights', then you can download yourself a copy here.

The electronica outfit have posted their 'Cloudlike' EP up free download on their Bandcamp page.

The Bees
The NME has an exclusive free download of their new song 'Silver Line' up for grabs here.

School of Seven Bells
The Brooklyn three piece have made their song 'Bye Bye Bye' available for free over on RCRD LBL, get downloading here.

The Great Valley
Some of the blogosphere seems to be going mad over this, I'm not sure what to make of it yet. There are certain bits that remind me of a ramshackle Wolf Parade with added ghost cartoon noises. Sound like it be your kind of thing, then why not download their ' Holiday, Holinight EP' which is up for free on their Bandcamp page.

The London outfit have put a couple of their tracks from their forthcoming EP 'Hot Light' up for free download, get downloading here.

The recent signings to the Secretly Canadian label have put up a free download of their 'Zeroes EP' all you have to do is give them your email address in exchange.

Kowalskiy's Komplimentary Korner

Ra Ra Riot
Yet another band I had almost forgotten about, once tipped as a band to rival Vampire Weekend, sadly the death of their drummer put them back a step. Still though it's good to have them back, they have a free download from their forthcoming album, get yourself a copy of 'Boy From the Orchard' here.


  1. One more for you, combining Freebies & Covers is Adam Stafford's new mini-album. Didn't think this was out till Monday, but it is up on Wiseblood now - http://www.wisebloodindustries.com/releases/adam-stafford-the-death-bridge-convention/
