November 19, 2013 in Blues, Dream Pop, Electronic, Free downloads, Hip Hop, independent bands, Indie, Pop, Rock, Surf Rock by Rex

The Feather – “What If” {Indie/Dream Pop}

This band is living proof that the only thing better than Belgian chocolate, beer, and that famous statue of a naked little boy peeing into a basin (AKA the Manneken Pis) is the country’s independent music scene. This track is off the group’s debut album Invisible, and you can stream more tracks off the album for free here.

Sam Clayton – “Lumberjack” {Blues/Rock} + Free downloads

It may not be Monty Python’s “Lumberjack” song, but with a little synth mixed in with some classic blues riffs (not to mention a free download as well), this track is pretty hard to beat. Sam Clayton is a Toronto-based multi-instrumentalist, and being the nice Canadian that he is, Sam is also offering a crapton of free downloads over at his Soundcloud page.

Balloon Assembly Line – “Blind Contour” {Surf Rock} + Free downloads

This one-man band is based out of Valdosta, Georgia, and apparently he wrote and recorded all of the songs on his new EP in his attic. His Catalyst EP is available as a free download over at his Bandcamp page, so if you like free stuff and/or free music (who doesn’t?) then click here.

The It*Men – “That’s Not The Way I Heard It” {Rock}

Influenced by the likes of The Stooges, MC5 and Deep Purple, these Clevelanders just released a brand spankin’ new album (appropriately titled Greatest Its), which is available for $8 over at their Bandcamp page. And while you’re there, be sure to check out their $15 “It Don’t Quit” shirts which are for sale to help raise money for Ken Janssen’s medical fund.

 

Biird & Lahghost – “Wavvy Season” {Electronic/Hip Hop} + Free downloads

With a sound described as a blend of electronic, hip hop and experimental sound manipulation, this duo is based out of Toronto (AKA Canada’s musical epicenter), so naturally their new album is packed full of all sorts of musical creations and surprises. If you dig their work you can download many of their tracks for free over at their Bandcamp page.
