Loney, Dear - Slow Down
An apology first of all to Emil Svanangen for referring to him as "Lonely, Dear" rather than Loney, Dear in a previous post. It's an easy mistake to make! The Swede is offering another track from his sixth album 'Hall Music' as a free download. 'Slow Down' is more of his trademark intricate writing and arranging, sounding quietly dramatic thanks to the subtle orchestration.

Pretty Good Dance Moves - I Wonder Why
Pretty Good Dance Moves are a duo from Chicago who formed in 2007 and have recently signed to Mad Dragon Records who will be releasing their debut album in February. 'I Wonder Why' is a wonderful piece of simple indietronica featuring slightly hypnotic repetition and the vocals of Sabina Sciubba from Brazilian Girls who appears on several album tracks.

A Place To Bury Strangers - So Far Away
We've had a bit of a wait for new material from A Place To Bury Strangers. Their last album 'Exploding Head' was back in 2009, but this year, following a line up change, they began work on their third album. They've recently announced that they will be releasing a new EP in February and the first track taken from it is the typically scuzzy and distorted 'So Far Away'.

Weird Dreams - Joan
London guitar-pop band Weird Dreams are currently putting the finishing touches to their debut album which is due out next year. Until then they're offering up a free track, 'Joan' to tide us over. 'Joan' won't appear on the album which hopefully indicates that what they have in store is even better than this gentle, mid-paced psych-pop gem. Definitely a band to watch.
