Last monday freebies before Christmas – I’m in Italy right now, so I rally hope all of you are spending your last work week rocking! Today we got one compilation and two singles, so let’s get it started!
Dragonwinter – The best Italian indie of 2012
A watering-mouth compilation, all tracks chosen by Davide Drago from Shiver webzine and Breakfast Jumpers. The download includes the powerful Architecture of the Universe and Stoop’s jazzy-vibe, the fragile folk of Mimes of Wine, the already mentioned Girless and The Orphan. Psychedelia with King Of The Opera and a pinch of new-wave with Twin Room, and also Mamavegas, Mai personal Mood, and Ka Mate Ka Ora. The two Italian-lyric-tracks are La verità stretta by Nicoletta Noè and Oratio’s Curo la forma.
The Maginot Band – Veiled Clock
It’s Christmas time, and Scotland’s The Maginot Band return with their very own festive single, Veiled Clock. Drawing from The Maccabees’ indie-vibe and the Mystery Jets-retro chic, the track gets Christmassy with the inclusion of choir like backing vocals and the use of sleigh bells. Grab it now from Soundcloud and get ready to an alt-Christmas.
Johnny & the Giros – Got Them Running / Shoot Me Up
It is not just time to cozy up with a mince pie in our hand. It’s time for Christmas parties! What a better soundtrack than the new Johnny & The Giros‘ double A-side single, Got Them Running / Shoot Me Up. This is a cocktail mix of Foals, LCD Soundsystem, Bloc Party, The Rapture, Yeasayer and Two Door Cinema Club – the best way to warm up a bit in this freezing cold.
