Exclusive MP3: Two Crown King - We Get Down Two Crown King have always impressed me with how they get their fans excited and cultivate an audience. Today they dropped a new single off an EP that should be hitting the public soon. The launch was pretty simple. They put up a domain, www.startshardstayshard.com, that counted down the seconds until the new single came out. There was a tiny box to throw your email into with the suggestion it might be worth your while.

Exclusive MP3: L'Altra - Winter Loves Summer Sun Since releasing their second EP, She’s So Hard, in November 2009, the four-piece have toured the country supporting Tegan & Sara, Katie Noonan and Josh Pyke, and as headliners in their own right (selling out shows nationally in the process). They’ve watched Hurt Me, the lead single from She’s So Hard, receive heavy rotation on radio in Australia and abroad, a feat also achieved by its follow-up, Easy To Love. Fittingly, The Jezabels have seen their fanbase grow every step of the way – sometimes in the most unexpected places.

Exclusive MP3: L'Altra - Winter Loves Summer Sun L'Altra's take on indie pop is a gentle wash of hushed guitar, rolling piano, subtle electronics, measured rhythm, synths and strings; all supporting Lindsay and Joe's call and response vocal musings. The band, as if taking a cue from it's name: ('the other woman' in Italian), is truly beyond this world...After a six year hiatus following their equally critically acclaimed album ‘Different Days’ all lead to a welcomed reunion of the dark and stormy partnership of singer-keyboardist Anderson and singer-guitarist Costa.

Free MP3: The Soft Province: One Was a LieSomewhere in the two thousand-mile-journey between the capital of Saskatchewan and downtown Montreal exists a new body of music called The Soft Province. It's where the two musical minds of longtime friends (and Besnard Lakes co-founders) Jace Lasek and Michael Gardiner met to explore and draw the new borders that make up the 45 atmospheric minutes of their album, also called "The Soft Province". There is a certain majesty to the melody. It's in the dusky album's air. It's in the earthy ten-track formation. And most importantly, it's in the songs. Release date February 22, 2011

A Little Give and Take was released as limited-edition vinyl only in 2009.

MP3: Avi Buffalo: Remember Last Time

Click here to download MP3 file

MP3: Avi Buffalo: Remember Last TimeAvi Buffalo was once just the kid named Avi (short for Avigdor Zahner-Isenberg). He's now singing and playing guitar, but was then a vaguely aspirational skateboarder living in Long Beach, who figured between hip trauma and a never-quite-conquered fear of dropping into a half-pipe that he might need to come up with something else to do with the rest of his life. His parents never got around to getting him the Game Boy he wanted, so he turned to a handily local guitar. Years of 12-hour days attacking that (plus lessons-to-mentoring with seriously iconoclastic local blues guys) revealed a pretty preternatural talent for making a very special kind of bent but lovely pop song. On tour now!

Exclusive MP3: Manouk: Untitled (Sigur Ros Cover)It's been years since Manuok's Scott Mercado emerged on the music scene - Dave Eggers dubbed Manuok "the best new band name" at its inception - and he's spent most of the time since on the road. After his cover of "Untitled" won praise from Sigur Ros as the best cover they've heard, Mercado was spurred on to work not only on The Old Horse, but also on multiple independent film soundtracks. Every moment on The Old Horse was mixed, mastered and recorded by Mercado himself and the album is a profound reaction to the death of his grandfather. There are hours of secret recordings of his grandfather's stories and life lessons.

Exclusive MP3: Oholics: Lose ItOholics are a six-piece psychedelic rock band hailing from Gothenburg, Sweden. They formed in 2005, when they discussed the lack of real rock acts in Sweden. Since then the mission has been to create mind-blowing, beer-fueled rock tunes. The music is often described with reference to early Stones mixed with Pink Floyd, Primal Scream, Oasis, Strokes etc. London meets New York. All songs, except the Syd Barrett cover; Lucy Leave, are written by Oholics and produced in a higher state of consciousness together with their somewhat confused but highly spiritual guide Ebbot Lundberg (The Soundtrack Of Our Lives), in the inspiring Svenska Grammofon-studion, Gothenburg. Disgraceland is available now.

The band has toured in various incarnations around the world (US, EU, UK) and have played with bands such as Nada Surf, Patrick Watson and Saturday Looks Good to Me.

Click here to download MP3 file

The Middle EastWhat we do know is that The Recordings Of The Middle East was originally self released by the band in 2008 and sold through their website. Thanks to Spunk records it was re-issued for the first time with new packaging and a new tracklisting in 2009. 2010 will bring with it their first SXSW. We have yet to see how their beautiful live show and songs will translate in front of an American audience for the first time. Armed with lush-layered melodies, gut wrenching lyrics and polished sound I would aim to bet that they will win over many ears and hearts down in Austin. Stay tuned...things are only heating up for this pack of Aussies.

CalifoneIn an underground music landscape where 140 characters equals "journalism" and lone MP3s propel bands to momentary internet stardom, bands are here today and gone tomorrow. Califone is a band that defies this blueprint. Their albums are full of layers and textures, offering endless depth, entire universes to lose yourself in – and beyond the thick spectrum of sound, they do something even more important: They write great songs. Califone is a band that will stand the test of time.

Free MP3: The Ruby Suns: Cranberries

Click here to download MP3 file

The Ruby SunsFight Softly is the second album for Sub Pop by New Zealand's pop masters The Ruby Suns. Ryan McPhun (their prime mover) has the kind of voracious musical mind that cites as equal influences '80s New Jack Swing and modern Angolan kuduro, Fleetwood Mac and Britney Spears, Brazilian tropicalia and Argentinean cumbia. He's the kind of diligent, meticulous soul that spends days hunched over a laptop in a tiny rented studio in Auckland, NZ just to perfect a sequenced drum track (mission accomplished). And Fight Softly is the kind of head-spinning combination of big-picture vision and sumptuous detail that only comes from an artist with an urgent need to express all the stuff he's seen. And you can dance to it!

Free MP3: Sharon Van Etten: Love More

Click here to download MP3 file

Sharon Van EtteThe Brooklyn-based songstress sings folk music for lovers—lovers of heartache, of life, of raw human emotion—laying graceful vocals like lace over crooning, acoustic guitar that feels straight out of the bedroom. Her lyrics seem to come from the depths of midnight thought, speaking to us as if in moonlit conversation over life's great truths. Yet she achieves this intimacy not through grandiose statements, but in tiny details: a toe-touch, a bloody knee…the little moments we've all known that take on meaning far greater than they may at first seem to possess .With guitar in hand, she is the first featured artist in the Shaking Through music series from WXPN and Weathervane Music.

Lou BarlowOn October 6, Merge Records will release Lou Barlow's new album, Goodnight Unknown. From the surging opening track "Sharing" to the surprisingly soulful performances on "The Right," Goodnight Unknown benefits from Barlows tunefulness and his decision to record the record relatively quickly, with old friends and new. The Melvins Dale Crover adds inspired drum work throughout, and Goodnight Unknowns urgent sound owes just as much to frequent Barlow collaborator Imaad Wasif (Yeah Yeah Yeahs, alaska!). The records considerable power also stems from the new talents on board, including producer Andrew Murdock and Lisa Germano.

Wye OakWye Oak will release their new album, The Knot, on July 21st. The Knot was written and recorded by Andy Stack and Jenn Wasner in rural Cumberland, MD and in their Baltimore living room. Jenn and Andy spent much of If Children, their debut album, submerging their songs of youthful love and dread in a distortion haze, but The Knot starts with a bell. From the first clarion-clear note, Wye Oak’s collective vision is sharpened on The Knot, a set of songs that sway, stretch, and scream while always reaching outward for a personal connection.
