Friday Freebies

This weeks Freebies is pretty sparse I am afraid, mainly because I haven't come across that much, that and I am having to write this up on a Wednesday night as I was/will be out the Pensioner album launch on Thursday/last night. Here's some wee treats for you to enjoy anyway...

Twilight Sad
Their new album might is not due out until later in the year, but Kilsyth's finest sons haven't forgotten about us. They've very kindly made an Acoustic EP available for free download to keep us all going. You can nab yourself a copy in exchange for your email address over on the bands blog.

Okkervil River
You can download Okkervil River’s “Wake And Be Fine,” from their forthcoming album I Am Very Far, for free over on RCRD LBL.

We See Lights
There are three words that are pretty guaranteed to grab my attention, 'twee', 'folk' and 'Scottish'. Edinburgh outfit We See Lights tick all of these boxes. So it came as no surprise that I found myself really enjoying their new EP, which funnily enough is called Twee Love Pop. You can make your own mind up though by downloading the first two tracks from the EP for free from their Bandcamp page.

Pinky Suavo
I must admit that I had never heard of Pinky Suavo until this week, the only reason I came across them was because they were supporting Pensioner at their Edinburgh leg of their album launch tour. You can download 'Hooks' from their forthcoming EP, 'Go For The Gills', or free on their Bandcamp. Those of a rock persuasion should lap this up.

Kid Karate
Random rubbish fact for you, last Saturday rather than get myself along to Tuts for some Bronto/St. Deluxe/PAWS- action, I found myself on babysitting duties, and ended up watching the Karate Kid. It wasn't as bad as it sounds, honest. I appreciate that was a very tedious linkage to this freebie, but hey it's the best you're going to get. Kid Karate are from Dublin, they have an EP called Heart out at the moment. It's very good, you can download the lead track, Black & Beige from it for free here.

Glasgow Podcart were raving about this tune earlier in the week, bloody beautiful it is too. Nice find Ms Rifai! You can download their song Relationship on Soundcloud for free.

Milk Maid
If you sign up to the Milk Maid mailing list you will get yourself a free MP3, demo version of 'Dead Wrong'.

The Robot Heart

The Brighton band are offering a free download of their song 'Singing to the ghost' on their Myspace
