#MusicMonday - Songs in 140 Characters (Or Less)


"It is my ambition to say in ten sentences; what others say in a whole book."
- Friedrich Nietzsche

Before heading into the nuggets of truth contained within this #MusicMonday, I should point out that the H-T-A Facebook page is now the go to place for our links to free MP3 lists. 

Tons of musical freebies popping into your stream every morning sound like a bonzer idea? Then you should most certainly click that wee 'Become A Fan' button somewhere down the right hand column here. Talk back on there, too. Your tune opinions are bound to make far more sense than my gibbering. Cheers!


Onwards.......

MP3: Blur - Fool's Gold (after e-mail sign up)
A restrained return that was always going to be crushed under the weight of expectation. Solid enough, like a more seasoned Coffee & TV.

MP3: Danko Jones - Full of Regret
Some bands don't need to develop their sound, especially not flagrant, balls out rock 'n' roll bands. Volume up, pedal down, drive like you stole it.


MP3: The Wind Up Birds - There Won't Always Be An England
Quintessentially English, with knowing irony, this spoken-word lament comes on like Mike Skinner sans laptop. Commendable but no World Cup anthem. 

Rooftop rendition of a nostalgic, delicate song that builds with quiet confidence. Hail summer if this is what occurs when sun hits Brooklyn.

MP3: 65daysofstatic - Crash Tactics (via Last.Fm)
Skittering, expansive static w/ a greater electronic bent this time, Sheffield's best kept secret continue to sonically mock genre boundaries.
