Free Music From Drew Danburry

tour2008_lrgWay back in February we told you about a new song & video from Drew Danburry about Artex, the “stupid horse” from Never Ending Story.  Well now Drew is back and he has a new EP called Geraniums which you can download for free (go here and look towards the bottom right under free album downloads).  You can also check his free downloads page for some other free tunes that should brighten your day.  Here’s one from the new EP called “Lynette, I Love you” which features Drew’s usual silly lyrics and catchy pop stylings.  Once it gets inside your head, you won’t be able to get it out.

New Tunes from Dominant Legs

dominantlegsWe first caught wind of Dominant Legs by way of Stereogum a few weeks back.  Any allusion to Belle and Sebastian will catch my eye! Still, this new tune isn’t quite the twee pop one expected, but it’s more summery, as if there is a lighter air to the crafty writing here. You decide.

Who ever said you can’t celebrate Halloween early?  The fine folks at Cherry Peel and Flip Scene think you can and that’s exactly what they’ll be doing at Mohawk on Wednesday night.  You can expect music from Black and White Years, Bright Light Social Hour, Learning Secrets DJs, Markus with a K, L.A.X, and Neiliyo.  Also make sure you wear a costume so you’ll be a part of the costume contest with some sick prizes.  A lot more info can be found on that sweet flier or over on do512.

First Track From Them Crooked Vultures

tcv1At this point you may have seen/listened to the youtube video with the first single from supergroup Them Crooked Vultures that hit the net yesterday.  You people know ATH is digging it so here’s an MP3 of that track for your downloading pleasure.  It’s pretty loud and straight up rock n roll.  The self-titled debut album from the band will be available Nov 17th.

New Tunes from The Bats

batsJudging by the look of this picture, you would think that New Zealand band The Bats might be just a touch to old to bring sweet tunes to your ears, but rest assured, they don’t have a 25 year old history for nothing.  Just like The Clean, they still have what it takes to spin phenomenal gems out of thin air, ones that inevitably get stuck in your head. Try this one on for size. If you dig it, you can find it on the 7″ over at Slumberland Records.

New Tunes from Surf City

Surf+City+surfcity140A while back we brought you the sweet tunes of Surf City fresh off releasing their first EP, but now the group has more new tunes in the works, and we’re glad to bring you the new tune.  While it takes “Autumn” a few second to wind up, the band let loose once the song gets going, bringing us more than we expected.  Guess we’ll have to wait until 2010 to get more great tunes such as this.
