Friday Freebies

The Son(s)
It's been a few months since I last mentioned anything about The Son(s), that's not to say that they've not been busy. They're currently working on a new EP which is due out later in the year (from the demo's that I've heard it sounds very promising). They've just released their new single 'Slow & Easy', which is made up of three songs, two of which are new and the other being Dogs, Boys & Men, which now has a cracking wee video to go with it. It's an animated wee number that's very Captain Pugwash-esq, I think it looks great, then again I am ever so slightly biased.

My blogger friend Kowalskiy has just release his 14th free EP, yet again he's got some great wee tunes up for grabs. This month there are free tunes from Black International, Negotiations, Aerials Up, Edinburgh School For The Deaf and The Ramisco Maki Maki Rocking Horse, now that's what I call a line up. You can find out more information and download links on his blog which you will find here.

freckle tan
If you were listening to Vic Galloway's Radio Scotland show on Monday you might have heard one of freckle tan's songs getting a wee bit of airplay. The side project of one of the Copy Haho boys is a bit different to the day job, as this is an electronic project. I still haven't fully made my mind up about Copy Haho, but I really like this free single that you can download for free from his Bandcamp page.

A few weeks back I sat in for a recording of the Glasgow Podcart in which Pensioner were the special guests, one of the tracks that they chose was by an Edinburgh band called Sojourner. Admittedly I'd never heard of them prior to that day, but I mist admit I was really impressed, so when I got home I got googling and found that they had a whole load of free stuff up for grabs on their Bandcamp. Fans of Wild Oldham and early Bon Iver, should lap this up.

As In Bear
For those of you who like your music a little bit louder, Ayrshire outfit As In Bear might be worth checking out. The band are starting to stir up a wee bit of a buzz, so if you fancy checking out what the fuss is all about you can download one of their songs for free on Soundcloud.

Euros Child
The Welsh singer-songwriter has made his new EP, Beef Bridge, available to download for free on his homepage.

White Heath
The Edinburgh based 6-piece have made two new tracks from their debut album 'Take No Thought For Tomorrow' free to download on Soundcloud.

Laurence and the SlabBoys
The former Fresh Meat starlets have been testing out their new drum machine and have made the song they crafted free to download on SoundCloud.

Okkervil River
Stereogum have another free MP3 from the 'I Am Very Far' LP, download new song "Your Past Life As A Blast" here.
