Five For Free #159

Black Dots - Captain, Won't You Help Me?


If the Beach Boys and the Beta Band ever got together our heads would probably explode. Also, they'd possibly come up with songs that sound like 'Captain, Won't You Help Me?' by Yorkshire group Black Dots. A well as this superb free download the band also have a single out called 'French Thieves' and you can hear that and more on their website.

Soul of Gaia - Two Hearts (feat. Adventure Of)


OK so this sweetly sung love song was released for Valentine's day so we're a bit late, plus it's by no means any kind of novelty cash-in, so listening to it at any time of year is advised as far as we're concerned. This is our introduction to Swedish singer Soul Of Gaia but we hope to hear more fairly soon because 'Two Hearts' is pretty gorgeous.

ELIM BOLT - Field


We're no strangers to South Carolina's ELIM BOLT and their fab label Hearts & Plugs keeps the goodies coming with this free download of the track 'Field' which is taken from their debut album 'Nude South'. It's a typically breezy piece of melodic alt-rock. If you're not well acquainted with them yet then type their name into our search box and tuck in!

Tarmac Adam - Bygones


Melbourne quartet Tarmac Adam have premiered a new song as a free download at Rolling Stone magazine. 'Bygones' has been given away as promotion for their debut US album 'The History Effect' and follows on from recent single 'Chalk On Slate'. Clearly accomplished songwriters, their guitar-pop sound should find favour with critics and public alike.
