It's Sunday. I'm not hung over, but I was rudely awoken this morning and feel I am owed something. I got some free cool music courtesy of XFM
, a lovely station who are dedicated to alternative and peculiar music (though they are pretty mainstream a lot of the time). They were the home of Ricky Gervais and Steven Merchant
for sometime, and still come back to host their show from time to time when they're not writing stuff that makes you want turn inside out.
Anywho, the deal is, you email one of the DJ's, Iain Baker
, and he sends you links to loads of downloads. I did it for the first time and thought I'd share with you. If this doesn't work, or is illegal in anyway, I'll pull it down, but they're all links to other blogs and wot not, and they're giving them away for free, so I don't see the harm.
Anywho, enjoy them while you can, and thank you X FM.Raconteurs and Lou Reed do MTV (With some killers as well).
Some Lovely Covers, Radiohead doing Pink Floyd, Arcade Fire grapple with the Yeah Yeah Yeah's maps, and Snow Patrol do Beyonce
Polyphonic Spree on Lithium; Kurt may approve
.Im a robot. Don't know if they are robots, but they're pretty damn catchy...
That's all for now...
