New Free Singles Tuesday


It's Tuesday and that means we have three new free singles available. This week's are a significant step up from last week's. You're going to want to download all three

1. MGMT - Time to Pretend - EP Time to Pretend - MGMT
iTunes was having some trouble with this track when I attempted to download it, so I'll add a link once it's started behaving. Luckily, I'm very familiar with this band. MGMT (said: management) is a fantastic up-and-coming band that mixes indie pop and electro-rock to spectacular results.

They are very difficult to describe, but immediately compelling: rock-oriented vocals and harmonies find their way through buzzing bass and chill beats. The result is something like nothing else you've ever heard, but you're going to want to hear a lot more of.

2.Maria Jose - Mariajose - Quien Eres Tu (Featuring Trey Songz) Quien Eres Tu - Maria Jose (featuring Trey Songz)
Maria Jose is already extremely well known in Mexico, as part of the pop group Kabah. This is the first single off her first solo effort, and is already rocketing up the charts.

It's not hard to see why. Not only is she beautiful, but the music is catchy. Think late-era Spice Girls in Spanish. Most of the song is in Spanish (the title translates to 'Who are you?'), but Trey Songz does some gorgeous over the song all in English, so still definitely worth picking up for you English-only speakers out there.

3.Celebration - The Modern Tribe Celebration - The Modern Tribe
Forget lyrics here. It's impossible to hear precisely what vocalist Katrina Ford is saying as she warbles through this single. But you won't need them. The music is so full, it doesn't really afford for luxuries like words or breath. Katrina is an extremely interesting, versatile vocalist, sounding in turns like Feist cut free from pretentions, then like a mellow Karen O.

Yeah Yeah Yeahs and TV on the Radio influences can be heard here, but largely the music surges forward on its own merits.

After listening to this single, I feel like I've eaten an enormous aural meal. My ears are full. I need to go find a pallette cleanser somewhere.

What next?
