Five For Free #214

Sonic Hearts Foundation - USA


There have been several occasions on which we've featured Glasgow psych-rock kings Sonic Hearts Foundation, and now they have this storming track available s a free download. It's intense, powerful, full of passion and will seriously kick your ass. We'd even go as far as to say that 'USA' is one of the very best songs they've made so far.

The Superman Revenge Squad Band - A Funny Thing You Said


Despite the band name being ridiculously long, it turns out that The Superman Revenge Squad Band isn't actually a band at all. It's the alias of Ben Parker from Croydon. 'A Funny Thing You Said' is an interesting and jittery indiepop tune and the album it's taken from proves the man is a fan of long titles. It's called 'There Is Nothing More Frightening Than The Passing Of Time'.

Rodeo Terrorists - No Point In Getting Angry


These guys have a point here, should you wish to listen to the lyrics. 'No Point In Getting Angry' states its case very well and leads us to believe that Rodeo Terrorists are no idiots. Here they mix decades worth of electronic sounds into something resembling a pop song. It's a terrific track, and they just about stop short of telling us to wear sunscreen.

Evan Andree - Falafal (Feel Awful)


It's unlikely that this new tune from Evan Andree has anything to do with food at all. Simply the similar sound of the word 'Falafal' and the expression "feel awful". Ever since hearing Evan's music several months back, it was clear that he had talent, but his best sounds were when he moved from the mainstream to more experimental places, and that's exactly what he's done here, and it's ace.

Steel Cranes - Moving On


Freaky cover art for a freaky duo. Steel Cranes are a Californian duo who make dirty and raw rock music that's shot through as if they don't even have to think. It's simply their natural state of being. Album 'Ouroboros' is due on the 24 of September, but before then you can give your ears a good pummelling by downloading free single 'Moving On'.
