Mad Mackerel’s Best Of The Month: February 2014

Mad Mackerel's Best of February 2014

Another month, another free mix of the best of our downloads from February. As always the mix includes some new tunes too from the retro 60s swagger of The Rebel Light, quirky bedroom pop from Copenhagen’s Eerie Glue, the excellent Lou Reed inspired, slacker rock of Posse, and King of Prussia’s literate, indie pop jangle.

Download them all below.

.

The Woodgrains – Devils Disheveled
Three-part, dream-drifting harmonies, and powerful riffs.

Milkman’s Union – Apple
Revamped country-folk dirge, with flourishes of psychedelica, free jazz, and maybe just a dash of Black Sabbath doom and gloom.

.

New Dirt – Big Muff Scream
Loud, lo-fi energy, girl-guy harmonies, reverb soaked guitars & noisy guitar pop influences.

.

Chalk And Numbers – Angelfuck
60s doo-wop style, indie rock inspired, Misfits cover

.

Blitzen Trapper – Coming Home
Outtake from Blitzen Trappers new album VII. They describe it as “good old-fashioned country funk, with horns and banjos side by side“.
