38 Free downloads for you ft. Beast, Manicanparty, Pixies & The National

It's been a while since we refreshed your playlist, so here we go. I counted quite fast - it might not be exactly 38 free songs, but it's a lot and they're all free, legal, and great, so don't hold Maths against me. Beast - Cat Lady They Might Be Giants - Tesla Rodrigo Y Gabriela - The Soundmaker EP The ...

DOWNLOAD: the catchy debut single from David Meulen

Let me tell you how you get directly into my brain with music: You start out with a quiet, but sure acoustic beat. you don't overproduce it or whisper your words annoyingly, you sing like you mean it. And then you drop your song into an upbeat and earnest howl of a chorus the beat of which will stay with your ...

The April Free Music Collection of Awesome featuring 16 new artists

There are only four of the 16 artists on this list that I'm not wholly in love with at the moment. And those four are only because they're the most recent downloads and I just haven't had enough time to finish falling yet. So don't delay, get them all (and remember, if you dig an artist's work, go and socially stalk ...

As always, remember to support these artists if you dig 'em - stalk them online, buy more of their music or definitely get out to one of their shows. Rock ...

The January Mix: 37 free songs from amazing artists

You might have noticed some format changes here this year. Like, there's been no free music so far - what's up with that?! Last year, I started to feel that I wasn't screening all the songs properly and was telling you to download some of the weekly free music tracks because it would make me look cool. Well no ...

6 International Bands To Keep On Your Radar In 2014

Haerts If you’re a fan of St. Lucia, Haerts are right up your alley! Most of their songs have been produced by St. Lucia mastermind Jean-Philip Grobler and I have a feeling 2014 will be a big year for them. They released their debut EP, Hemiplegia this past October, featuring the blog-friendly, “Wings,” and we ...

Now Streaming: The Raddest EP by Deathcats

Nope, that wasn't a made-up headline, that's the actual name of Deathcats' new EP, released earlier this month. This new EP is weirdly non-fitting but fitting for us, two days after the exact middle of summer, because Deathcats are from cold old Glasgow and say they're "here to brighten dreary December with their ...

Free Music Monday: Butcher Knives, Ryan Martin, NTNT

Here's what happened this week - I went down through the ever-growing list I have of cool bands that definitely deserve a second listen, and went to check if any of them have free downloads up. Turns out, quite a few of them do. So your selection today is super new, super indie, and all off Facebook. If this band's ...

Free Music Monday: The Lumineers, Josh Ritter, Lydia Loveless

Would ya look at that - it's December! And that start of summer, for some reason, means we're mellowing out with our free downloads this week. I'm not entirely sure - a lot of them just happened to have a very folky feel to them. So chill out and enjoy: Abandon Ship! - Abandon Ship! ep Total Slacker - Keep The ...

Free Music Monday: Hot Water Music, Hey Geronimo, Mudhoney

Of all of those names in the title, favourite discovery of the week actually goes to U.S. Royalty's song "Into The Thicket". These guys look a lot grizzlier than their sound actually is. This song in particular is a wonderfully subtle acoustic type of modern rock and hopefully their forthcoming album will sound just as ...

Come and have a Manicanparty

Every year as the dreaded festive season draws nearer and the year swiftly wraps itself up in to a collection of memories and odd regrets, I always find myself in a strange state of sadness. It’s that feeling of nostalgia, of things coming to an end, of time inevitably slipping by and youth running away from me. In ...

Free Music Monday: The National, Fuzigish, Gossling

I've compromised my morals on this one, because I like to pre-approve all the free downloads on here, and I never pre-approve of The National's music, but I know a lot of you definitely do. So you win this one, here you go: Benjamin Hound & Jack Iver - Dripping Sin Kabaal (Klankbaan) - Player Two This ...

Download: Two SA musicians team up for a fun take on heartbreak and loss

Kabaal (klankbaan) is a Pretoria-based folk-rock project. They play acoustic folk-rock, which varies from folk-pop songs, Afrikaans love songs, dark, dystopian landscapes, and covers and translations of Eels, Bob Dylan, Buddy Holly and Desmond and the Tutus tunes. And they've just released their new single, "Player ...

Free Music Monday: Dead Lucky, Amos Lee, Glasvegas

We've got demons, we've got loud local rock and roll,  we've got a song Amos Lee wrote for his mother, we've really got it all this week at A Thousand Guitars.
