Here’s a round-up of the ten best free downloads you can find elsewhere on the internet this week.
Foals – ‘Spanish Sahara’
With all the recent buzz about the new Foals song, it’s no surprise there are already some great remixes of it out there. Mount Kimbie’s version of ‘Spanish Sahara’ gives the already-eerie track an even more haunting touch.
Kate Nash – ‘Do Wah Doo’
We’re stoked for Kate Nash’s second album, ‘My Best Friend Is You’, which is due out April 19th. And if this song is anything to go by, then this will be one pleasantly bubbly collection.
Florence And The Machine – ‘You’ve Got The Love (The Very Best Re-Do Of The XX Remix)
The Very Best put two of the very best musical acts of the moment together to make one awesome mashup. With Florence’s howling vocals and The xx’s soothing beats, it’s one exciting combo.
David Guetta feat. Kid Cudi – ‘Memories (Armand Van Helden Vocal Remix)’
Another remix taking the Internet by storm this week, this track will have you fist-pumping more than the guidos on MTV’s Jersey Shore.
Danger Mouse and Sparklehorse feat. Julian Casablancas – ‘Little Girl’
After the album Dark Night Of the Soul was blocked by EMI from being released last year due to a legal dispute, Danger Mouse and Sparklehorse have finally leaked some of their tracks. The full album is available to stream on NPR , but be sure to download ‘Little Girl’ (with vocals by Julian Casablancas).
Wolf Gang – ‘Back To Back’
Wolf Gang is back with this new demo of Bowie-inspired simplicity with a funk-pop twist. It’s considerably fitting for the equally trippy video.
Wiz Khalifa Vs Empire Of The Sun – ‘The Thrill’
Wiz Khalifa’s 2009 mixtape Burn After Rolling featured a number of familiar hits (including Beyoncé’s “If I Were A Boy” and Drake’s “Best I Ever Had”). He also took a stab at rapping over Empire Of The Sun’s ‘Walking On A Dream’ to make ‘The Thrill’, a gem of electro-sampling hip-hop.
RJD2 – ‘A Spaceship For Now’
A gasmask-wearing flight attendant serving orange juice to people wearing sleeping masks on the beach is an odd choice of content for a music video, but when it’s accompanied by such a psychedelically brilliant track as this one, it doesn’t really matter.
Penguin Prison – ‘Something I’m Not’
Penguin Prison is a great name, as is this song that’s filled with hints of African beats and Frankmusik-like poppiness. Hailing from the same label as Passion Pit, Marina & The Diamonds and Ellie Goulding, it’s no wonder he’s produced some electro-goodness.
Bat For Lashes – ‘All I Need’ (Radiohead cover)’
This emotional rendition of a classic, backed with a string quartet, was recently performed live at the De La War Pavilion in the UK. Bone-chillingly beautiful, we’re hoping she will take it to the studio soon and make a real recording.
