Five For Free #9

The Sound Of Confusion's summer holidays are over. Have we been anywhere nice? Well if a week in Penzance counts as a holiday, then no. LOADS of free tunes and new releases to catch up on. To kick things off here's a brief run down of 5 fine free downloads.


1) Handsome Furs - Repatriated


Another couple making sweet music together. Montreal's Handsome Furs released their new album Sound Kapital on Sub Pop last month. It's had some stellar reviews. Check out this electro-rock freebe by hitting the download arrow or streaming it below.

2) Seapony - Blue Star



If it's buzzing indie-pop you're after then you may find a new favourite band in Seattle's Seapony. They only formed last year and have already put out a top notch debut album. This track is Blue Star and it's rather good.

3) Bodies Of Water - Open Rhythms



Back to the day job after a spell making great 70s pop as Music Go Music, Bodies Of Water offer us their third full length in Twist Again. Wrap your ears around the chilled out funk and lush strings of Open Rhythms.

4) Kindest Lines - Strange Birds



I know little about Kindest Lines. They're a trio from New Orleans and have just released their debut album. I like it, I thought some of you might too. This track is called Strange Birds and it packs a mighty Joy Division-cheer-up-and-go-electro punch.

5) La Big Vic - Musica



We may be set for a week of rain and generally miserable weather in the UK, but hopefully afterwards we'll still have a good dose of summer sun to enjoy. The perfect chilled out soundtrack to lazing around on the beach/garden/park comes from New York trio La Big Vic.
