Five For Free #24



Bass Drum Of Death - Get Found


Mississippi duo Bass Drum Of Death get their unusual name from their original incarnation as the solo project of John Barrett who would play solo using guitar and a solitary bass drum. Earlier this year they released their debut album, 'GB City' on Fat Possum Records. Now you can pick up the noisy, melodic, grunge buzz of 'Get Found' for free by clicking the link below.

Trwbador - Sun In The Winter


Another great duo next, this time Welsh twosome Trwbador. Trwbador released their second EP in the summer and have recently performed at the Swn Festival. They make gorgeous folktronic which is high on beats and melody and low on the meandering soundscapes that many in the genre create. Check out the excellent 'Sun In The Winter' by hitting the download arrow.

Orbital - Never


Sticking with the duos - the brothers Hartnoll reformed in 2009 for gigs celebrating their 20th anniversary making music. This was followed by a one-off single last year and they've now announced that they will be releasing their first album since 2004 next year. They first track to be lifted from it is the lovely, spangley, retro electronica of 'Never'.

Thee Cormans - Open The Gates


Many bands are marking Halloween with ghostly new songs but few will be as good as the rollicking surf made by Californians Thee Cormans. Taken from their new album 'Halloween Record', 'Open The Gates' is a high tempo blitz of guitar twang and treble and primitive drums, a little bit like someone's Frankenstein-esq experiment  to interbreed The Shadows and The Cramps.

Gray Things - Fortune Teller


We started with Mississippi and we end with Mississippi. This fuzzy, sinister, lo-fi electro-pop track features backing vocals from Dent May and was apparently recorded in his bedroom. Gray Things is the musical project of Thomas Cooper who is signed to the Cats Purring label and is his first new track since last year's strictly limited cassette EP with Dead Gaze.
