Five For Free #21



Brown Recluse - Impressions Of A City Morning


Slumberland Records come up trumps once again. Philadelphia indiepop band Brown Recluse released their debut album 'Evening Tapestry' earlier this year and the first single to be taken from it is the tambourine driven, jangly, summer pop rush that is 'Impressions Of A City Morning', a track that it's impossible not to fall in love with.

Grass House - Faun


As mentioned in a previous blog, Yorkshire's Grass House have a new single out this week; 'The Breeze' which is backed by 'Faun'. Both tracks are exceptionally good and are the work of a band who are brave enough to do their own thing rather than follow trends. The good news is that they're now offering both songs as well as three previous recordings as free downloads from musicglue.

Ewert And The Two Dragons - Jolene


Not a cover of the Dolly Parton song but rather ace anyway. The Scandinavian indiepop bug appears to have spread around the Baltic Sea. Estonians Ewert And The Two Dragons have an new album out called 'Good Man Down' and you can grab a track from it below: the twinkly guitar pop of 'Jolene'.

Gardens & Villa - Spacetime


As with the aforementioned Slumberland, you can generally count on Secretly Canadian Records to sniff out a good band. Santa Barbara five-piece Gardens & Villa are a slightly psychedelic update on 60s west-coast Americana. Their self-titled debut album was released in the summer and you can pick up album track 'Spacetime' below.
