Friday Freebies

Edinburgh band Letters, have developed a bit of a buzz about themselves lately, with an array of Scottish bloggers already tipping them for big things. Kudos has to go out to Kowalskiy for being the first one to pick up on them. Personally, I think they sound like they have potential but I am not getting overly carried away, not yet at least. They've just release their new double a sided single ‘Grand National/Pipe Dreams’ as a free download. If you want to see if the hype is justified then you can make your own mind up by grabbing a copy here.

Male Pattern Band

If you're going along to see the French Wives tomorrow night in Edinburgh, then make sure you get down nice and early as the awesome Male Pattern Band are supporting. They're also supporting PAWS at their EP launch next month and as if that wasn't enough they've made their Summer Sampler CD-R available to download for free.

Maple Leaves
If you like your indie-pop with a touch of twee then you're going to love Maple Leaves, the Glasgow trio have just made their 'Threads EP' available for free download. Rather lovely it is too.

As I've already mentioned, our former Komplimentary Korner star has been pretty on the ball as of late. Not only has he been uncovering an array of talent that a lot us bloggers have completely missed, but he's been busy organising his eighth Free Monthly EP. This month he has an absolute corker up his sleeve, he's roped in some new up and coming stars in Wrongnote, I See Horses and Josef Llama, on top of that he's got exclusive tracks from the amazing Call To Mind, plus a hidden gem for Olive Groves very own, The Son(s). Hats off to the doc for his great work, you can download the EP on his Bandcamp.

In a months time pretty much anyone who's anyone will be descending upon Austin, Texas for this years SXSW festival. Sadly, I'm not 'anyone' so I will be staying in sunny Scotland, there will however, be an array of amazing talent from our wee nation heading over to showcase quite how amazing our music scene is.
