Fitz and The Tantrums: "Breakin' The Chains Of...
Sometimes the iTunes free download of the week is just god damn awful, other times you get an absolute gem. Past diamonds in the ruff have been Skinny Love by Bon Iver (back in ‘08), James Vinvent McMorrow, Gypsy & The Cat, Lanu, so its always worth checking back weekly. This week we have Fitz and The Tantrums Breakin’ The Chains Of Love a great soul throwback track from this...
James Vincent McMorrow: "This Old Dark Machine"
He is one of the best things of 2011, no doubt. He has just announced his first US headline tour which kicks off next week September 8 in Philadelphia.

Remix, Baby: Johnny Cash "God's Gonna Cut You Down...

CSS: "Red Alert feat. Ratatat"
Haven’t heard that much from CSS in a while, then out pops this awesome little track, Red Alert, with producers Ratatat on board. Get this involved in your weekend playlist. It is from their new album La Liberacion, which is out now. CSS: Website…Facebook…Twitter…iTunes
James Blake & Bon Iver- "Fall Creek Boys Choir"
In a way Bon Iver and James Blake seem like a logical collaboration, especially with Bon Iver’s experimentation on the Blood Bank EP, but then again it also feels a little bit out of the blue. This will take a few listens before it clicks, but if you like James Blake and you like what Bon Iver did with Woods, you’ll probably be able to wrap your ears around Fall Creek Boys Choir....
Florence & The Machine: "What The Water Gave Me"
Here is the first preview of new things from Florence & The Machine and the difficult second album. What The Water Gave Me doesn’t stray too far from the classic Florence sound but you can hear evolution. Excited about the new album? Yes.
disCOVER: The Vaccines "Last Friday Night (Katy...
The Vaccines were in with Fearne Cotton today on Radio 1 in the Live Lounge and did a cover of Katy Perry’s Last Friday Night. Here it is. (It almost gives it some kind of Joy Division/Echo & The Bunnymen feel) The Vaccines “Last Friday Night (Katy Perry Cover)”
disCOVER: Laura Marling & Mumford and Sons "Jolene...
We’re having a bit of a Laura Marling moment surfing through youtube, and we found this. The fantastic Jolene by Dolly Parton covered just brilliantly by Laura Marling and Mumford & Sons. Oh enjoy this one.
Mystery Jets Double Shot
This is truly I Think You’ll Like This Song moment. Maybe you’ve heard these before, maybe you haven’t, have a listen and prepare to have your socks rocked off. Two tracks from the Mystery Jet’s second album 21, one that is so eighties it is one of the best things ever and another featuring the delectable Laura Marling. Either way you’re laughing.

The Weeknd: "The Zone feat. Drake"
If you haven’t downloaded The Weeknd’s new mixtape Thursday do it now. Right here. Having listened to the whole album over the weekend, can safely say we prefer this to House of Balloons, at the moment anyways. Here is one of the stand out tracks of the album, The Zone featuring your boy Drake. The Weeknd - The Zone by The_Weeknd

This remix has been around for a while, but we only recently downloaded Theophilus London’s This Charming Mixtape which said remix is on.

The album of the year for many, The Weeknd’s debut mixtape House Of Balloons has blown up the internet and everybody was hankering for more.

Go and download it here (though the site can be a little slow,...

Emeli Sande: "Heaven"
Having this repeatedly played on radio 1 has helped this get into my brain,and I love it. First heard of this track as a remix when it was played on Judge Jules (as I was helping out writing up some of the script of the show). Mixing together urban with dance with pop Heaven is just a good track. (Especially the trumpet break before the hook kicks in). Emeli Sandé - Heaven (Radio Edit) by...
Theme Park: "A Mountain We Love"
We posted on Theme Park back in May, posting up two of their tracks Milk and this one A Mountain We Love. There wasn’t really much to go on back then, just that they were from the UK and we liked what we heard. Cut to now, and they’re starting to be a little less shy and are making noise. Heard them on Radio 1 a week ago and knew I recognised it so had to delve back into the...
Matt & Kim, Soulja Boy and Andrew W.K.: "I'm A...
Right, so this is Matt & Kim plus Soulja Boy and Andrew W.K. all together for I’m A Goner, are you still with us? Good. They’ve all come together for Converse, and it’s actually quite good. If you like Matt & Kim, you’re going to be okay with this as the beat is classic them and Soulja Boy actually has a pretty decent flow on this, so we’re giving this a...
LIVE: Clock Opera "Belongings (Live @ Maida Vale)
We haven’t done a LIVE feature in a while, and we realise that we posted on Clock Opera just yesterday but anyway, here’s Belongings live at a Maida Vale session for Radio 1 back in June. Belongings (Live @ Maida Vale) by clockopera Throw it in your music collection for free, just click that lovely down arrow download button.
Remix Baby: Matt and Kim "Block After Block (We...
We have played this three or four times back to back since we downloaded it this afternoon. It is great. We loved the Teen Daze remix of Matt and Kim’s Block After Block but We Hear Echoes is edging ahead as our most favouritest one. Throwing in some 90s style piano chords it is perfect for summer (hell, it’s perfect for anyime). Download it now and for free, just click on that...
Clock Opera: "Lesson No.7"
Clock Opera can do no wrong in our eyes because they made the phenomenal Belongings. Here is the follow up, Lesson No. 7, which follows a similar format of looped sample that builds into something beautiful. Clock Opera are playing the Hoxton Bar & Grill in London, September 14…We may see you there. Clock Opera - Lesson No. 7 (Full Version) by clockopera Clock Opera:...
Laura Marling: "Sophia"
One of the first to really break through from the emerging folk scene in London, Laura Marling has paved the way for others like Mumford & Sons and Noah & The Whale (her old band). Marling is fantastic and she is back with Sophia. One of the most exciting singer/songwriters in the UK at the moment, Sophia just adds to the many reasons why. (Ghosts That Broke My Heart is another) ...
If you like your folk music orchestral, atmospheric and just plain good well then you should check out The Ridges. Recorded in Athens, OH. in an old abandoned asylum, The Ridges use the acoustics to their advantage in their debut EP The Ridges. Catchy upbeat tracks such as Invented Love and War Bonds are nestled in with the atmospheric Overboard, the attitude laced Not A Ghost and the epic The...

So if you look below you’ll find this track sampled by E-Dubble on his new track My Last Dream. And here it is in its original glory in all its original packaging…or something. Wintersleep - Weighty Ghost by Sonic Entertainment Group
Fortune Family: "Young Hearts"
Maybe this is frat rap? Two white kids doing the indie hip hop thing, sampling Rod Stewart’s Young Turks along the way for this track Young Hearts which is the lead single from their upcoming mixtape. If you like Chiddy, if you like Hoodie this could be up your street. Young Hearts - Fortune Family by Addicted To The Music Fortune Family: Facebook…Website…Twitter

Blitzen Trapper: "Love The Way You Walk Away"

Kites With Lights: "Cosmonaughts"
Fantastic synth pop right now for your ears from Kites With Lights Cosmonaughts. This will at least get you tapping your feet even if you don’t get up and start dancing to this one (which in all fairness you also have a good chance of doing). Kites With Lights - Cosmonauts by Kites With Lights Kites With Lights: Website…Facebook…Twitter…SoundCloud
ANR: "New Armour"
Great old fashioned pop from Miami duo ANR (Awesome New Republic). It sounds kind of like if you threw together MGMT, Empire of The Sun and Spoon. Have a listen to New Armour ANR - New Armor by 10Kislands ANR: Website…Twitter
Red Eye Fugu: "Night Runner"
From their latest EP, Watchers, Red Eye Fugu returns with this electro funk pop track that gets under your skin. We like Night Runner a lot. Red Eye Fugu - Night Runner by PlanetaryOnlinePR Red Eye Fugu: Website…Facebook…SoundCloud
Watch The Throne Stream
So it’s here, for iTunes anyway. It won’t physically drop for a week or so which as angered smaller record store owners (rightly so). But here it is the collaboration between two of the biggest hip hop artists Jay-Z and Kanye West. Is it good? Yes. Did I expect more? Yes. With two talents (and egos) like Hov and ‘Ye its nice that they don’t try to outshine each other and...
disCOVER: Weezer "Pumped Up Kicks (Foster The...
What a cover! Weezer paying tribute to Foster The People’s Pumped Up Kicks giving it that great Weezer shine. Can’t wait to get a clean copy of this.
disCOVER: Work Drugs "Rolling In The Deep (Adele...
In two minds whether to post this or not. It’s not strictly a cover, but like the Mike Posner cover we posted a few months back, a complete reworking of the Adele classic. Giving it a chill wave makeover by Work Drugs, its a good track. If we didn’t know it was a cover, we could really get down with this…but its not. We need to give this a few more listens. See what you make of...
Air France: "It Feels Good To Be Around You"
Swedish electro pop duo Air France have only released 2 EPs and a single here and there teasing music bloggers muchly.

Ya Boy: "We Run LA feat. Dr. Hollywood"

Beirut fuse together the American sound with Balkan folk, indie folk, electronica and world music elements to create something musically lovely.

We just LOVE this song so much and its perfect for summer, so here you go. O.N.E by Yeasayer. O.N.E. by We Are Free Turn. It. Up. Loud.
The Belle Brigade: "Shirt"
Brother and sister duo, The Belle Brigade make seriously good sweet music. Shirt is no exception, sung from the perspective of a shirt it starts off slow and melodic and then erupts into this great pop rock song that you can’t help bob along to. The Belle Brigade- “Shirt” The Belle Brigade: Website…Facebook…Twitter…iTunes
Bermuda Star: "Tide Me Over"
Making “electronic pop music from outer space” is what Bermuda Star promise us. They’re holding up their end of the bargain with Tide Me Over, a great slice of spacey electronic pop music. Tide Me Over is from their debut album Where The Rainbow Ends which is available to download here <a href=”http://bermudastar.bandcamp.com/track/tide-me-over”...
Bon Iver: "Minnesota, WI" (Live @ Riverside...
On July 22, it was declared Bon Iver Day in Milwaukee and that night Bon Iver played through their whole album live at the Riverside Theater (with a few favourites such as Skinny Love and The Wolves thrown in for good measure). Ever since the new album dropped, its been in rotation constantly. At the moment our favourite song is Minnesota, WI. Its a little different, for one Justin Vernon...

Washed Out: "Amor Fati" (@ernestgreene)
We keep being told to check out Washed Out and we finally have. Amor Fati featured on a summer mixtape we downloaded the other and its got into the ipod rotation.
