It’s FAI Ford Cup Final weekend and to celebrate what we’re sure will be a titanic struggle between St. Patrick’s Athletic – come on you Saints! – and Derry City, we’ve a bumper going-in-all-studs-flyingFree Music Friday for you.
The Coup, Mac DeMarco, I Got You On Tape, Eskmo, Indian Handcrafts, Menahan Street Band, Me And My Drummer, Lost Bear, Black Marble and Andrew Bird kick off this week’s streaming action at 3voor12.vpro.nl/luisterpaal/albums.html while music.aol.com/new-releases-full-cds/#/1 chips in with Calvin Harris, Q Parker, Zion I and Macy Gray and music.aol.com/new-releases-full-cds/spinner#/1 adds Cody ChesnuTT, Andrew Combs, West End Motel, Chad Valley, The Faint and Lulu Gainsbourg to the mix.
The streaming pickings this week on NPR are slim but they do have a damn fine Passion Pit session for your download delection.
There’s a Richie Hawtin Moogfest set to be drooled over at www.npr.org/series/live-in-concert and an archive Moby gig at www.npr.org/event/music/141657328/moby-in-concert-moogfest-2011 which is just itching to be added to your iTunes.
Another deal you shouldn’t be saying “no” to is the free digital download of Josh Rouse & The Long Vacations’ eponymous album, which includes two bonus demos. If you want to leave a couple of bucks in the tip jar, nobody will be offended!
Epic Records have dropped Death Grips after the US hip hoppers gave away the new album, No Love Deep Web, the label was supposed to be releasing commercially. It’s also possible that they objected to the hairy erect penis artwork. Cop an earful at thirdworlds.net/main/death.php.
This week’s free album avalanche continues with a 13-track sampler from Bleek Records, the Brooklyn-based home of among others Natureboy, Heart Of Hearts, Two Twins, Mr. Moccasin, House Of Wolves and Easy Lover.
