Five For Free #38

Pond - Fantastic Explosion Of Time

A couple of the guys in Australian trio Pond (not to be confused with the 90s US band of the same name) also play with Tame Impala. Much like that band, Pond have a love of the psychedelic rock of the late 60s and early 70s. Their album 'Beard Wives Denim' (?!) is out in March and kicks of with the full-on psych wig-out of 'Fantastic Explosion Of Time' which you can get free by clicking the little black arrow below.

The Ice Choir - Two Rings

Kurt Feldman is a member of The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart and was also in The Depreciation Guild. Two bands we absolutely love. Well now he's unveiled his new project The Ice Choir who've just released their new single 'Two Rings'. It's totally not what we were expecting, being a fairly middle of the road piece of 80s influenced synth-pop. We're not sure what to make of it! Download it and see what you think.

Internet Forever - Break Bones

We first heard about indie-popsters Internet Forever from our little sister site The Found Of Confusion. You can read what they had to say here. Well since then they've been preparing their debut album which is set for a February release and the demo of 'Break Bones' which we heard a few weeks back has now been touched up and is being given a single release. It's yours for the price of a tweet or a facebook 'like'. Bargain.

Roomrunner - Spinning

Baltimore hardcore band Double Dagger spilt earlier this year but we already have an offshoot growing. Roomrunner is the new project by drummer Denny Bowen and judging by this debut single they're a touch less hardcore and a little more melodic. 'Spinning' is out now on limited edition cassette (the kitsch hipster's format of choice) or you can download it free below (the sensible option).

Blonds - Treasure Coast

We posted a track by Florida duo Blonds last week, and they're turning out to be one of those bands that just keep growing on you the more you listen to them. So here's another track from their eponymous, self-released EP 'Dark Roots'. 'Treasure Coast' is a little bit like Tennis and a little bit like The Raveonettes, so as you can imagine, we a little bit like them.
