Based out of Asheville, North Carolina, Sin Kitty is a fresh new act with a lot of potential that is definitely worth your time. So drugged-up and heavily psychedelic with hints of lo-fi punk that the short 12 mins of Wonder When suffice. However, it’s got some great songs and one that is particularly catchy as hell and the highlight of the EP, track #3, “Addie”. It echoes and whispers and walks you through a dreamy path and although the song is only 2.38min long it sticks with you for the rest of the day. The repetitive guitar riff (Tame Impalaish) is so addictive that you’ll find yourself wanting to listen to it over and over again, you’ll hum it while you shower and think about it while you inhale your cigarette and you may not truly realize what song you have looping in your mind. Other highlights are the opening song “Only When (I’m Lonely)” and “Dirty Rotten Kids”, but the truth is that if you like this kind of music, you’ll end up liking all of them and you’ll be addicted to them, they’re so short, they demand various listens. If you are the music lover of bands like James Ferraro, Wavves and Tame Impala and you like their cover art as much as I do, you’ll like this EP, if you don’t, then your ears may or may not be grateful, but I’m inclined to say they will. I’m really really looking forward to see how their sound evolves and for further releases, but meanwhile, download their debut EP for free and give it a couple listens, it’ll only take 24 mins of your day. I’m also posting 2 pretty cool videos of them, enjoy!
We have talked about new artist I Can Chase Dragons! in the past when they released their first summery single “Diving for Sunken Treasure“. Now, the Mexican-based experimental pop band has released a new single in Spanish entitled “O’Donojú”. However, language is no barrier here with their new cut. The music has a voice of its own and the melodies truly transmit the mood of the song, therefore you don’t need to understand in order to enjoy. Impeccably produced, “O’Donojú” sounds fresh and original, it will make you want to dance and whistle and run, lay back, think, imagine and rethink, but mainly it will make you smile. You can download the song for free via their souncloud page. Their album is soon to be out, we’ll let you know when we know more. The video is posted below, an abstract visual trip. Enjoy!

One year ago, we posted about this english duo that had us reminicsing the 80’s. Summer Camp have teamed up with Pulp’s Steve Mackey to release their debut album “Welcome to Condale” later in October. You can now grab for free their session with Daytrotter in which they play Ghost Train, Round the Moon, Whole Wide World and a dramatic version of I Want You, go ahead and download it right here.
Who doesn’t enjoy a remix? Noah and the Whale have teamed up with British producer Bibio to remix “Waiting For My Chance To Come.” Grab, hear and download the synth-heavy, vocoder-infused, and cowbell-driven remix that will heat up any Autumn day. This remix shows a very different approach to the indie folk band’s usual sound and that’s what makes it so interesting.
Making home-made movies is exhausting, even more so is trying to find a good soundtrack. We recently heard Steve Marion aka Delicate Steve’s “Don’t Get Stuck” and found it perfect for this. Whether it’s a trip to the beach, a night out, or just some footage of friends skateboarding we found this song very fitting for you next home-made movie. Check it out below. BTW you can download it for free!
It doesn’t take huge complicated arrangements in music to provoke emotion. Wild Beasts have found the formula to create dark twisting paths of emotion. Just two years ago they captivated us with their sophomore album “Two Dancers” which included hits like “Hooting & Howling” and “Albatross“. This year saw the release of their third album “Smother”, the second single of this album is “Reach a Bit Further” and as it turns out it comes with a B-side called “Thankless Thing” which you can listen to below and even download for FREE. What are you waiting for?
It seems like 2009 was the year for new indie folk music, bands like Mumford & Sons, Local Natives, Fleet Foxes, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros were all everyone was talking about. So far 2011 has not had the same luck for this genre, but to our surprise The Wandas have recently shared a new track (which you can download for free) entitled “Longtime Running” from their self titled new album. Check it out below specially if you like folk rock, enjoy!
