The Hot Press Newsdesk, 30 Mar 2012
As if this sunny start to the weekend wasn’t glorious enough we’ve another action-packed Free Music Friday to jolly things up even more.
Hot Press spent a very pleasant 45 minutes yesterday chatting to Paul Weller who revealed that he’ll be playing here in December. You don’t have to wait though for an earful of his Sonik Kicks album, which is streaming at music.aol.com/new-releases-full-cds/spinner#/1 along with the latest opuses from Civil Twilight, Lindsay Fuller, Poor Moon, Astra and Mercies.
Next to our bounteous old friend 3voor12.vpro.nl/luisterpaal/albums.html who are streaming the new albums from Orbital, The British Expeditionary Force, Simon Felice, Justin Townes Earle, Blood Red Shoes, THEESatisfaction, Breton, Grinderman and Miike Snow.
Their kindred American spirits npr.org/series/98679384/first-listen with similarly impressive streams of the new M. Ward, Bear In Heaven, Of Monsters And Men and High On Fire offerings.
Meanwhile at npr.org/2012/03/29/149163085/glen-hansard-new-songs-and-old-friends?ps=mh_frhdl2 you can hear Glen Hansard previewing some new songs, covering Brooooce and getting on down with E Street Band-er Jake Clemons.
It keeps getting better with npr.org/event/music/148530119/alabama-shakes-live-in-concert-sxsw-2012 and npr.org/event/music/148474924/sharon-van-etten-live-in-concert-sxsw-2012 home to downloadable live SXSW sets from Alabama Shakes and the equally genius Sharon Van Etten who counts The National among her admirers.
On the home front, Dublin electro heroes Sounds Of System Breakdown have a brand spanking new and completely free remix EP available for your listening pleasure at soundsofsystembreakdown.bandcamp.com/album/others-remixes so get on it!
Having seen it go platinum in the States, AWOLNATION have decided to give their ‘Sail’ single away in return for a facebook.com/RedBullRecords/app_209906579108771 'like'. Which seems perfectly reasonable to us!
