Freebies: The Friday Free Download Round-Up

Some are weird as hell, some require email sign-ups, some your first-born, but they’re all free


Some are weird as hell, some require email sign-ups, some your first-born, but they’re all free and they’ve all got guitars in and that’s the main thing. Maybe you’ll find something you like…

If You Only Pick One…

Japanese Voyeurs – Dumb
HOLY CRAP, what happened to these kids in school? Delightfully-demented grunge-revivalists Japanese Voyeurs sound like Hole should have.

Get The Rest…

Young Guns –Winter Kiss
Chunky guitars, echoing pianos and all round epicness (it’s a word!) from High Wycombe’s hottest new alt-rockers. Keep an eye out for a forthcoming Hot Band feature in TG.

Year Long Disaster – Show Me Your Teeth
YLD like to make scuzz-rock with a classic edge. Rolling, deep drums lay down solid foundations for guitarist/vocalist Daniel Davies to riff over.

Swanton Bombs – Calm Down
Got drums? Check. Got geetars? Check. Now make some bright and noisey art-rock that we can all throw ourselves around the living room to.

Thomas White – The Last Blast
White blends elements of ska, garage-rock and electro to create something that bares a marked aural resemblance to a haunted roller-coaster ride.

Tindersticks – Black Smoke
Here’s a bit of country/folk-tinged rock ‘n’ roll from Nottingham indie legends Tindersticks. They’ve got a lovely 'Stones-esque twanging lead guitar tone and some awesome percussion work on this one.


Lucky Soul – Coming Of Age

Sometimes you
just need a bit of bouncy, orchestral indie-pop to flounce about the garden to like a fatter, hairier Kate Bush.
