Five For Free #89

Zulu Winter - Silver Tongue

It must have been a bit of a whirlwind being a member of London gang Zulu Winter so far. They only formed last year and have already released an acclaimed debut album as well as picking up support of some of the big names in the alternative music world (Zane Lowe, NME, Steve Lamacq, er, us). Their radio-ready indie/dance tunes are going down a storm. Check out current single 'Silver Tongue'.

Linfinity - Miles

New York alt-rockers Linfinity have announced that their second album 'Lights In Cairo' will be released this coming autumn (no confirmed date yet) and if we use new track 'Miles' as a barometer of what to expect then it'll be brilliant in a kind of modern Talking Heads meets TV On The Radio meets The Walkmen sort of way. Worth keeping an eye out for, put it that way.

Choir Of Young Believers - Paint new Horrors

Danish one-man band Choir Of Young Believers has a new album, 'Rhine Gold', available now. It's his second full length following several singles and EPs, and taken from it is the lovely orchestral pop of 'Paint New Horrors' which takes a fairly simple tune and builds layers of instrumentation upon it until it sounds quite statuesque. Grab it for free below.

Heavy Cream - The Jam

Heavy Cream are a quartet from Nashville whose recently released new album 'Super Treatment' was produced by Ty Segall. So far, so rock 'n' roll'. Well free download 'The Jam' doesn't disappoint, combining the raw power of garage, punk and grunge with some speaker-busting production and a few squalls of distorted sax. Basically it's begging to be played very loud.

Tomas Barfod - November Skies (Feat. Nina Kinert)

You might know Tomas Barfod as the drummer with Danish group WhoMadeWho, but then again you might not. Well he is, and he makes solo records too, his latest being 'Salton Sea' on which 'November Skies' appears. This subtle and misty-eyed piece of chillwave features some very enticing vocals from Swedish singer Nina Kinert.
