Friday Freebies

The Last Battle
It's been quite a year for the Edinburgh folk act. Having garnered a bit of a buzz about them at the start of the year, they went on to sign to Scottish blogger 17 Seconds label and released one of the most critically acclaimed albums to have come out of this wee nation in 2010. To round the year off the band are setting off an a tour of the country (weather permitting/sadly they couldn't make it through to Glasgow). To celebrate their adventures the band have very kindly posted up their new single 'Natures Glorious Rage' up for you to download for free. Get stuck in boys and girls, this is awesome stuff.

White Heath
This year, White Heath are the latest band to be taken under the wing of college run label, Electric Honey. With an album due out in 2011, the band have given up a wee taster of what you can expect by posting up their track 'CG' to download for free on their Bandcamp.

This week saw a surprise return from Dundee outfit Laeto, who have posted up their third album 'III' for free on their Bandcamp. To say that this caused a bit of a stir on the Scottish scene would be playing down somewhat, with luminaries such as Vic Galloway, The Skinny and Glasgow Podcart (who 'spaffed') all heralding their return. If you want to find out what all the fuss is about you can download the album here.

Shambles Miller
The former Fresh Meat troubadour, Shambles Miller has taken it upon himself to write a song that's only 47 seconds long, amusingly title 'The Shortest Song I've Ever Written Is The One With The Longest Title '. You can download yourself a copy here.

Euros Child
The former Gorky's Zygotic Myncinew frontman has just made his new album, Face Dripping, available to download for free on his website. Cracking stuff.

It's All Happening
Last Saturday I was out seeing Randolph's Leap supporting the Concretes, an awesome time was had and not just because I pinched most of their rider. Before the night descended into a drunken blur, Vicki from the Leap told me about a wee side project that she had been working on with her friend Alex. Being the pessimistic fucker that I am, I didn't think too much of it. That was of course until I actually heard the song that they had recorded. To say I was impressed would be a massive understatement. If you fancy hearing whether I am full of shit or not, then you can download their one and only track 'I am a golden god' for free here.

Ghost Pants
He may well be sunning it up on the other side of the pond in LA recording the new Dananana' album. But my favourite plant pot wearing drummer Paul Carling has found time to record another couple of songs for his side project, Ghost Pants. You can download it for nowt here. Also look out for a wee recording of the whole band playing live at the first ever Peenko Tea Party some time early in the new year. From what I have heard of the early recordings, it's going to be epic.

Experimental label, Phuture Labs have just put our their third with Glasgow producer S-Type.
"It's kinda hard to describe but has a hint of Hudson Mohawke in the mix alongside some classic P-Funk stylings and lovely melodies a-go-go. 2010 electronica with huge hip hop, funk and grime influences". If that sound like it would be your cup of tea, then you can download it for free here.

Right now, Low are sharing a new live EP, streaming below, or available for download it in exchange for an e-mail. Live at Eindhoven was recorded at St. Catherina Church in the Netherlands city on January 22, 2009. The band was joined by a full choir for the performance - Pitchfork
