Five For Free #258

Goddam Nobody - Cut And Paste To Waste

As the race for new ideas for packaging and promoting music continues, Art Is Hard have announced The Pizza Club, a series of releases that come as a download and a limited pizza box containing a pizza CDR. The first in the fortnightly run is a pretty awesome piece of reverberating, oscillating, psychedelic guitar-pop from Falmouth's Goddam Nobody, the solo guise of Matthew Oliver. It's a great way to start.

Kev La Kat - Keep It Tropical

Another year is underway for the excellent Love Our Records series, and the first release is from the project's main man Kev La Kat who serves up an unusual concoction of sounds that probably shouldn't work but do. The overall sound of 'Keep It Tropical' is twisted electro-pop of the variety that you might get if a modern computer game goes a bit insane for a few minutes.

Passenger Peru - Heavy Drugs

With the refrain of "keep it tropical" still ringing in our ears, Brooklyn's Pasenger Peru do just that on this mid-paced psych groove that comes with a firm beat, some twinkling guitar, plenty of woozy sounds and sound effects to transport you to a different interplanetary world. 'Heavy Drugs' is off their self-titled album which is due out on Monday. Expect more coverage soon.

Lakefield - Good Guy

This very sweet indie/pop song is the latest release from Vancouver quintet Lakefield, a band who formed in 2008 but are new to our ears. With a heartfelt vocal and an alt-pop intro that gives way to a slightly more crunching second half, we can now add ourselves to their list of fans. Especially if any of their other tunes are as nicely made as 'Good Guy' from forthcoming album 'Swan Songs'.

Spiders Everywhere - Glacier

Giving their location simply as "France" might seem a bit broad, but dig a little deeper and the six members of Spiders Everywhere do originate from all across the country. Calling a song 'Glacier' may have you expecting ambient or post-rock sounds, and there is an element of that, but really this is an electronic pop/rock song that draws your attention rather than merely acting as background music.
