Free Music Friday!
Frightful outside, delightful in here as we bring you free sounds from the likes of Bobby Womack, Hot Chip, The Walkmen, Alabama Shakes, Liars, dEUS, The Temper Trap and Funeral Suits...
The Hot Press Newsdesk, 08 Jun 2012
Noah’s Ark weather or not, Free Music Friday’s enthusiasm has been dampened not one jot with a killer collection of tunes to ward off the evil weather spirits.
It’s straight in, no kissing, with streams of the new Tallest Men On Earth, Bobby Womack, Japandroids, Shackleton, Man Without Country, Fear Factory, Múm, Citizens!, dEUS, Hot Chip, Neil Young, Liars and Infadels albums, courtesy of http://3voor12.vpro.nl/luisterpaal/albums.html.
The latest Beach Boys, Paul Simon, Lenny Kravitz, Curren$y, Shawn Colvin and Rock Of Ages offerings are available from http://music.aol.com/new-releases-full-cds/#/1 while http://music.aol.com/new-releases-full-cds/spinner#/1 allows you to try The Hives, The Walkmen, The Melvins and The Temper Trap before you buy.
We’re indebted to Lisa Hannigan for pointing us in the direction of the http://atorecords.com/springsampler download which features her good self alongside tunes from Alberta Cross, Alabama Shakes, Caitlin Rose, Mariachi El Bronx, My Morning Jacket, White Rabbits, Primus, Hey Rosetta! and Rodrigo Y Gabriela.
There’s another free sampler to be bagged at http://www.occupysummerwbr.com.
We’re not sure about the trivialising Occupy Summer title, but the Curren$y, Meek Mill, Wale, Waka Flocka Flame, Kirko Bangz and Stalley raps don't disappoint.
If you like what you hear of Mr. Flame, his whole Triple Life album can be devoured at http://www.thesource.com/articles/223134?thesource-prod=t9pgqdsdd2kk3heqj3u8966051
Another strangely named hip hop gentleman, SpaceGhostPurp, is sharing his new album with us on this handy player.
Also getting widget-ed up is one-man Australian party machine Muscles who’s gifting us a mixtape version of his Manhood album.
We’re a bit irked with Maximo Park. Good on ‘em for streaming their excellent The National Health album at https://www.facebook.com/maximopark/app_474972392519288?app_data= but why only give us a bare 90 seconds of each song? That’s not how it works chaps!
