Five For Free #74

Father John Misty - Nancy From Now On


So former Fleet Fox J. Tillman finally releases the first album under his Father John Misty guise next week. By now you should be familiar with Hollywood Forever Cemetery Sings and you can also get your hands on another free pick from 'Fear Fun'. 'Nancy From Now On' is as pastoral and harmonious as you'd expect but gloriously sweeping and upbeat at the same time.

Reptar - Orifice Origami


'Body Faucet' is the debut album from Athens, Georgia quintet Reptar and is also out next week on Vagrant Records. Below you can get a free download of album cut and oddly named 'Orifice Origami' which mixes a few genres and ends up being a catchy and appealing mix of indie/disco/pop and more. It's simple fun but brimming with passion too.

Advance Base - Summer Music


No doubt carefully planned to be released at the start of summer, Advance Base's 'Summer Music' will unfortunately be met with the gloomy clouds and rain currently residing over UK skies. Still, the song itself is hardly a summer breeze, feeling rather more maudlin and downbeat, but it's all the better for it. Their album 'A Shut-In's Prayer' is out in a couple of weeks.

Ramona Falls - Sqworm


Portland alt-rockers Ramona Falls will be putting out their second album 'Prophet' next week too, with Brent Knopf now taking time out from Menomena. There are a handful of free tasters doing the rounds at the moment but our favourite is probably 'Sqworm'. They've invented a new word and created a thundering piece of grand indie while they're at it.

Light Asylum - Shallow Tears


Brooklyn duo Light Asylum have been collecting a fair bit of hype on their brief journey so far. Their self-titled debut album is out to download soon with a physical release due in the summer but their debut EP 'In Tension' is readily available now and you can download the dark and juddering 'Shallow Tears' for free below. It manages to sound retro and incredibly modern at the same time.
