Mad Mackerel's Best Of January 2014 Free Downloads

Our first collection of free downloads from the new year taken from the best of our posts for January. Twenty tracks to tickle your fancy including, as always, a few new ones.

Dig in.

The Woodgrains – Nobody Too
Lysergic folk-rock anchored by three part harmonies and an instinctive feel for classic songwriting.

.

The Rebel Set – Monster
Vintage crash and snarl – a teenage rumble in the late night hours.

.

Northern American – Record Forever
Effervescent, sun-dappled indie-pop with a hint of darkness.

.

Black Manila – Keep Your Head On
Nigh on perfect mix of proto-garage punk, blues and psych rock.

.

Girl Band – Lawman
Awesome six minute tribal stomp and slash that sits somewhere between Pissed Jeans, !!!, Butthole Surfers, Shellac and Liars.

.

The Pinecones – That’s The Way I Wanna Do It
Classic psych tinged power pop.

.

New Electric Ride – Lovers
Heady mix of catchy, lysergic fuelled psych-pop.

.

NØMADS – In The Mend
Sonic intensity par excellence.

.

Jitterbug Vipers – Stuff it
Vintage, ‘swingadelic’ heady bliss.

.

Rainbow Jackson – Nightcrawler
Excellent prickly, edgy indie rock that has echoes of Deer Tick through to Speedy Ortiz.

.

Stone Jack Jones – State I’m In
Unsettling, woozy Americana – reflective, languorous and spooky.

.

Tacocat – Crimson Wave
Like riding a surf-pop wave of joyous power chords and fluorescent guitars.

.

Jimmy Tait – All My Friends
Pleasingly unconventional, somewhat desolate, goth-tinged post-rock.

.

Sun Blood Stories – The Mirage Descends
Primal, hypnotic garage rock and soul.

.

Champ – Burnt Alive
Grungey punk that is as moody as it is punchy.

.

Download TURCHI – Mind’s Eye mp3 (from My Time Ain’t Now EP)
Gem of a cover of Josh Ritter’s Mind’s Eye, all laid back guitars and gravelly vocals.

.

And to finish off we have new tracks including free and loose country rock from D. Charles Speer & The Helix, dreamy indie-pop from The Honey Trees, the sludgy riffs of Abattoir Blues, and lastly, some power pop fused with Americana in a southern rock vein from Hillman Lighthouse.

MM Shorts 511: Sun Blood Stories

Sun Blood Stories are a psych-rock band from Boise, Idaho who embed a healthy dose of garage rock and soul into their music and put their line in the sand somewhere near the primal, hypnotic end of the spectrum.

We’ve previously featured them in one of our Videos of the Day posts and now we have a free download of a rather tasty track, Desert For Days for you.

Grab it via Bandcamp or listen below.

Videos of the Day

Five excellent videos to start the weekend for you.

First, the much lauded Jackson Scott with a surreal and eerie film to accompany stand out track That Awful Sound from his debut album Melbourne. Then we have the cinematic video for B.B. Vulture from one of favourite new discoveries of 2013, Men’s Adventures, and we have the garage punk and blues fusion of surf rockers Hindu Pirates and the garage-psych-soul of Sun Blood Stories.

Finally Kill Moon ratchet up the sonic mayhem with their video for new tune Black & Blue.
