Magic Man

June 22, 2010

Yes a while since I posted here and it’s not from lack of inspiration but real world matters which have been hindering my thinking and time.

Lots to catch up with and no better way to start than with Magic Man.  There certainly is something magical about their tunes and it’s more than just smoke and mirrors going on in them- each tune full of the duo’s catchy vocals and more layered electronica tinged instrumentation than you can shake a wand at.

So many standouts that it’s just easier to listen to the whole album which you can do on the widget below or head to their Bandcamp to get the free download of the full album Real Life Color.  No trickery here so just listen and in their own words- if you like the songs, please share them with anyone you think will enjoy them as well.


Chad VanGaalen- Soft Airplane B-Sides

September 18, 2009

If you’re a fan of Chad VanGaalen’s album Soft Airplane then the b-sides are a must and at the moment you can get a free download of them here!

Definitely worth a listen and while some are unquestionably b-sides with them being rough and ready, there are quite a few that must have been close to making the album.  Of the nine tunes,  Are You Sleeping? and Soak In Visions have some great beats and vocals with Twisting Magic Up being the best of the lot with a great vibe.

City Breathing- My Apple IIe Is Singing Sad Songs To Me

July 4, 2009

City Breathing are back with a new ep perfect for end of a stressful week-four excellent tunes which will flow over you and get you into a peaceful frame of mind.

My Apple IIe Is Singing Sad Songs To Me certainly is an indication of their sound- a bit of melancholy sweetness with slow building post-rock numbers.  What will catch you though are the ethereal falsettos and great instrumentation- the standout for me is The Hum Of Passing Cars which really makes you think that if cities breath then this is how it should sound!

You can download their ep for free (and donate!) along with buying the cd which comes with a letter pressed Apple IIe (5.25”) floppy disk case which be worth it for nostalgia alone…a long time since those were around!

Alas no individual videos for the tunes but while you’re waiting for the download have a look at their taster for the ep and check out the vid from their previous ep here.


I Am Not Lefthanded- Everybody Sleeps

June 8, 2009

I Am Not Lefthanded have released the single Everybody Sleeps at their official site for a free download and its a catchy one- at least something good has come of Kathryn’s sleepless nights!

Interesting idea for making a video for the tune- they are taking submissions of people sleeping with triumphant bears or having bears sneak about behind them while going about their night-time routine.  Check the download page for details and everybody that submits will get one of their snazzy t-shirts.



50 Foot Wave- Free Download

March 16, 2009

Had listened to 50 Foot Wave’s tunes before and quite liked the harder edge from Kristen Hersh.

They have a new ep called Power + Light that you can download for free…and not only that you can download everything they have done for free– all 4 EPs, instrumentals, live recordings, and as they put it a few other goodies.

Interesting to see that not only do they have a choice of flac and mp3 but they also have a choice of a direct download or download via a torrent- not something you would see with all the publicity over torrent sites recently.

The Joy Formidable- A Balloon Called Moaning

March 7, 2009

I first came across The Joy Formidable before Christmas with their snappy titled tune My Beerdrunk Soul Is Sadder Than A Hundred Dead Christmas Trees and a catchy number it was.

What really got my attention though was the single called Cradle and they have released their ep A Ballon Called Moaning which not only has this but 4 other great tunes.  Of the others Austere and While The Flies are standouts but its difficult not to keep coming back to Cradle which will stay in your eardrums for a while!

The download version is free from Music Glue and if you buy the cd you get the full 8 tracks.



Lines Drawing Circles

March 4, 2009

Had come across Lines Drawing Circles before and funnily enough was from a blogger in NY and not in Ireland.  Was reminded of them when listening to Phantom tonight and if you head over to their official site you can download their single Thebes along with b-side Fit To Be Tied.  Great sound and they will be playing ALT in Dublin this Saturday the 7th.


Yes the jangly look is intentional.
