We anticipated Adele’s Bond theme being a belter and we weren’t wrong. Luxuriate in ‘Skyfall’ here.
Aidan Gillen stars in the epic 10-minute-long vid for Sigur Ros’ ‘Ekki múkk’, which forms part of their Valtari “mystery film experiment.” Snail and fox fans will love it!
Free Music Friday wasn’t too sure what to make of Jake Bugg last week when we saw him supporting the Scream Team in The Grand Social. A week later we’re smitten. Here’s the kitchen-sink drama promo for his new ‘Two Fingers’ single, which makes for somewhat harrowing viewing.
And that, friends, is your Free Music Friday lot for this week. Don’t forget to tweet your links @stuartclark66
