Friday Freebies

The Music Alliance Pact
My good mate The Pop Cop had a special wee celebratory post earlier in the week, if you haven't come across his Music Alliance Posts before then now is the time to do some catching up. I'll leave PC to explain what it's all about, all you need to know from is that he's posted up a cracking wee compilation of songs for you to download for free. You can get your hands on some exclusive and rare tracks from some of the following, We Were Promised Jetpacks, The Seventeenth Century, The Unwinding Hours and Kid Canaveral to name just a few. Download it here.

Last week they gave us a free download of OnTheFly's Remix of 'Let Fidelity Break', what this weeks freebie is a mystery to me. If last weeks tune is anything to go by then once again boys n girls you're in for a treat, plus we're also one week closer to the release of their new album. Double Bonus.

Quiet Lights
Here's a great wee freebie that you should be checking out this dream pop outfit Brooklyn who have just recently released a 3-track pre-release, which they're giving away as a wee taster of things to come to from their forthcoming full release. Their album which is currently being mixed by John Congleton (St Vincent, Explosions in the Sky) then mastered by Alan Douches (Frightened Rabbit, Sufjan Stevens) should be out early next year. If that sounds like your kind of thing then just click the link.

Bella Union
One of my favourite labels are giving away a whole host of freebies this week, first up they have a wee free album sampler up for grabs, it features tracks from
Beach House, Lawrence Arabia, The Acorn and Department of Eagles, you can get your hands on it here. They are also giving away a whole host of MP3's on Soundcloud, including tracks from The Walkmen, Abe Vigoda, Our Broken Garden and The Kissaway Trail.

Kori Pop
Her real name really is Kori Pop, or at least that's what she tells me, she even has as the birth certificate to prove it. Not long ago she released her first record From The Outskirts, which was made in a barn located in rural Ontario, I think that's about all that you need to know. Oh and there is also the small matter of her giving away her first single Nowhere Near My Heart for free on her Bandcamp page.

The Japanese War Effort
Gerry Loves have posted up the Fresh Air Session that The Japanese War Effort recorded for them. You can download it here.

The Twilight Singers
You can download a new song from the forthcoming Twilight Singers album due early next year on Sub Pop Records. "Blackbird and the Fox" features a duet between Greg Dulli and Ani DiFranco and you can get it here.

Hot Chip
Those funky Hot Chip kids have released a free track, 'Didn't Know What Love Was' through Converse, it features Bernard Sumner & Hot City, and you can get it here.

Scrap Brain
Edinburgh's Scrap Brain are giving away their track 'Caspian' for free all you have to is tweet about it, find out more here.

Neil Milton
This week saw the return of Scottish music label, Too Many Fireworks, although now it's based in Warsaw. Label owner and also musician Neil Milton relaunches his label with an new EP, you can get your hands on song air (Or The Dragonfly) from it for free in exchange for one tweet.

The Brooklyn outfit have been compared to a 'downstroke Beach House', if that sounds good to you then you can download their Ladies Man Effect EP for free.

You can download a remix of Dream About You by former Fresh Meat-er 'Dems' here for absolutely nothing. I think this falls under the category of tune!


You can get a free download of their song 'Torn Up In Praise' here, be quick as it's only available for the next few days.

Club Seat
Yep the car maker, it's amazing how many want to use music to promote their product these days. Mots of it being bland shit music, not that I am saying that the free music being offered for free doesn't fall into that category, I'm sure that some of you guys must like Foals and Bombay Bicycle Club. Hence the reason for me posting this link, however, if you find yourself getting all excited about the prospect of a free Ellie Goulding session, then I really have failed you all.

The Van Doos!
The nice folk over at 'Young & Lost Club' are giving away an“essential first offering from London based threesome The Van Doos” which you can get for free here.

Three Blind Wolves
Ross Clarke and his band have a wee freebie up for grabs on his Myspace, you can download 'The Maybe Forest' simply by clicking the link.
