Five For Free #39
New Cassettes - Silent Guns
The 'Silent Guns EP' was originally released at the beginning of the year, but since then Northampton group New Cassettes have picked up the support of MTV's Hype Music (could it be that big sounding British guitar bands are coming back in to fashion?) who have just released an expanded 'deluxe' version of the EP digitally. You can grab the upbeat indie-rock of the title track for free by clicking on the download arrow below.

Miike Snow - Devil's Work
Swedish/American trio Miike Snow are gearing up for the release of the follow up to their acclaimed debut album and the first track lifted from it is this free download single. 'Devil's Work' shows a more alternative, moody edge than some of their previous tracks (including their production/writing work with Britney, Kylie, Madonna etc.) and could be their best track to date.

Dan Mangan - Oh Fortune
We gave you a free track from Canadian indie/folk singer Dan Mangan's new album 'Oh Fortune' a couple of weeks ago (if you missed it, head here) and if that was the kind of thing that tickles your fancy and you haven't been persuaded to buy the album yet then you'd be advised to check out the album's title track which is free to anyone who signs up for his mailing list.

Seventeen Evergreen - Angels
Things seemed to have gone rather quiet for San Franciscan duo Seventeen Evergreen since they first made waves in 2007 (including an appearance at End Of The Road) but they're back with a new EP, 'Psyentist' which is out now. Taken from it is the slightly psychedelic electro-rock of 'Angels' and the hope that they may release a second album sometime soon.

Whales In Cubicles - Never And Ever
If you enjoyed the debut single from 'Whales In Cubicles' (you can stream it here if you haven't already) then hopefully you will have investigated further and stumbled upon punchy free track 'Never And Ever' which they posted online a few weeks back. Being a bit tardy, we've only just realised that we haven't posted it on here yet. So here it is, dig in!
