EARDRUMSPOP – BETWEEN TWO WAVES
Making a 10-track playlist and putting it on mediafire is one thing – getting 40 tracks together ready to group into three genre specific genres and giving them away is another thing entirely. Doing all that whilst making sure that the quality is consistently good, that you’ve got illustrators and cartoonists and a huge .pdf booklet guide as well is absolutely insane. Oh, and concept behind ‘Between Two Waves’ is that two artists collaborate for each song. How anyone managed to put together something with the majesty of this is beyond comprehension, but the fact that they’re giving it away for free is scarcely believable. In all honesty, this is probably the download of the year, and there are even past editions available on the EardrumsPop website, meaning free songs from Run toto Run, Sambassadeur, The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, Fanfarlo, Je suis Animal and many more. This is what music downloads should be all about, absolutely fantastic.

I SAID YES – WHEN THE NIGHT COMES IN
Picked especially by the trendsetting, puntastic blogger/promoter/everything Lynn Roberts of For Folks Sake for Track in the Box, the band were the first to play the blog’s Allotment, which is definitely something other bands are bound to regret not having on their CV. The track is actually pretty ace too, full of energy, twinkles and harmonies to make your little heart swoon
LEIF VOLLEBEKK – DON’T GO TO KLAKSVIK
In advance of the release of his debut album in the UK with a tour to follow, Canadian solo artist Leif Vollebekk is giving away the lead single from ‘Inland’. ‘Don’t go to Klaksvik’ shows him as a singer songwriter in the Rufus Wainwright mould, and it’s obvious that he’s got a lot of talent as well as an excellent name

KITSUNÉ MAISON 9 MINIMIX
Seminal french label Kitsuné are set to unleash their new mixtape of taste-making sounds on 26th April, but if you#ve been unfortunate enough to miss their Facebook competition giving away 10 free copies of it, you can try make up for it by getting your hands on a sublime 5 minute megamix put together by JBAG. Even if you’ve got it preordered, this isn’t worth missing out on – bizarre and beautiful.
