Guilt-free Friday

Our good friends at Team Clermont have put up some guilt-free MP3's of some of their best artists.

Herohill bands of the Week - Ian Love, and Casiotone for the Painfully Alone, Gregor Samsa and much, much more. Well maybe not much, much more, but you get the idea.

Gregor Samsa - Young and Old:: Fans of Mum and Sigor Ros will be happy with one. Bonus points if you can tell me the significance of the band name.

Casiotone for the Painfully Alone - Cold White Christmas:: There is a reason Owen was made the band of the week. His songwriting is at its best on theis track.

Lylas- Tiny Echos:: The Nashville scene is blowing up in '06. Wait, do people still say blowing up? If not, please ignore that last statement and download this track. Beautifully constructed pop is not something to pass up.

Ian Love - ButterFly:: Another great track from Ian's solo release.

Finally, I guess it is true. All the internet rumors eventually are true. Nick and Jessica broke up. She's with Maroon 1. I guess that means shoe-gaze is officially going to be the next big thing (well I guess the next big thing to be ripped off by many and perfected by few).

(the sounds of) kaleidoscope is a DC based band that is starting the resurgence of shoegaze. Way too often you hear people say a band sounds like Primal Scream, MBV and JMaC. Usually when people say that, I laugh - like when I hear someone gets killed by bees. I say, "no one should try to replicate that stuff" and delete the band from my playlist halfway through the first listen.

I did that with these guys and after listening to the tracks today, I realize I made a big mistake. These two songs TC sent out are nice noise.

Check out these tracks and let us know if you agree:
(the sounds of) kaleidoscope - certain color sky
(the sounds of) kaleidoscope - because i am haunted
