Incubus – Valentines Day EP [Free Download]

Incubus memberi para penggemarnya hadiah Valentine, informasi ini sekilas saya lihat dari akun Twitternya @ekawan. Sebuah free download EP yang berisi empat track live mereka dari rangkaian tur dunia mereka “If Not Now, When? World Tour”. Empat track ini, Dig, Echo, I Miss You, dan all time favorite track saya Stellar, merupakan bagian dari DVD bootleg mereka yang akan rilis beberapa waktu kedepan. Berikut pernyataan dari Incubus (beserta kotak untuk mendapatkan link download di email anda) melalui situs belanja online mereka IncubusHQ:

“We want to thank all of our fans around the world for coming out to see us on the “If Not Now, When World Tour” with a little gift of music to share with your loved one on Valentine’s Day. We’ve included 4 of your favorite Incubus love songs recorded live on the tour. These tracks and more will be part of the Incubus “If Not Now, When? Live Bootleg Series” which will be coming soon. If you like what you hear we hope you will join us somewhere else along the tour which continues throughout 2012.”


Adios Nine

 

Adios Nine

Formed last year, Adios Nine is a band of talented musicians based in Jakarta, Indonesia. Guntur Indra, Muhammad Pandu, Risky Syah, and Yan Sabri already released two EPs, Pundit Bandit on August 2011 and Sleepers And Dreamers on December 2011. You can hear both EPs at the bottom of this post, or download it straight from their Bandcamp page.

Both Pundit Bandit and Sleepers And Dreamers are easy musics for your ear, nothing’s knotty, a casual pop songs suitable for your weekend evening. Fancy guitar playing with a bold vocal department, jolly beat, and we shall not forget the catchy tunes from additional instruments here and there. Sounds like Belle And Sebastian, which made ​​me conclude that they should consider adding some piano tunes for their upcoming album. I recommend Pundit Bandit and We Can’t Live Forever that will anesthetize you right away.

Munchausen Trilemma – If Loving You Is Heartbreaking [Free Download]

Munchausen Trilemma

Seperti yang sudah saya sebutkan dalam ulasan demo mereka sebelumnya, hari ini Munchausen Trilemma merilis If Loving You Is Heartbreaking hasil final mixing dan mastering secara online dan bisa diunduh melalui tautan di Tumblr mereka. Disamping hilangnya suara dari suasana bandara di awal lagu, yang mana menurut saya sangat-sangat unik dan menarik, versi akhir ini jauh lebih enak untuk didengar dari pada versi demo yang mereka rilis sebelumnya. Dengan kualitas suara yang lebih baik dan keseimbangan antara satu instrumen dengan instrumen lainnya, tidak usah berpikir panjang untuk memasukan lagu ini kedalam playlist pemutar musik kegemaranmu.

Immortal Technique – The Martyr

Since his debut album ‘Revolutionary Part 1’, Harlem-based rapper Felipe Coronel or better known as IMMORTAL TECHNIQUE has always been well-known to be a powerful political-conscience MC that is not afraid to speak out his left-wing idealism against government corruption and corporate greed through his music.

And It’s been three years since Immortal Technique released his latest anticipated album ‘The 3rd World’ in 2008 due to all his attention being more passionately concentrated towards engaging humanitarian activism across the globe. But it does not mean Technique has forgotten his fans and their thirst to be intellectually inspired by his lyrics. Recently, Immortal Technique released a free 16-track mixtape of never-before-heard materials produced DJ Green Lantern and Southpaw. (download here at official Viper Records or Mediafire )

Not only is it free, but the mixtape features an impressive cast of distinguished MCs such as Brother Ali, Dead Prez, Killer Mike, Chuck D, and many more. Immortal Technique has remained politically agressive and incredibly vicious with his socially-conscious lyrics. The bar is raised on the dramatically paced track “Civil War” with Killer Mike, Chuck D, and Brother Ali. With the ongoing series of Occupy Wall Street demonstrations, Immortal Technique has picked a no better time to release the track “Rich Man’s World (1%)”. But my personal favorite from this mixtape is none other than “Eyes in the Sky” featuring Mojo of Dujeous that sampled the same-titled original by The Alan Parson Project with an awing introduction. (track 3 in Soundcloud below)

Introducing Bear Driver

Perkenalkan Bear Driver, enam orang Londoners yang Januari nanti akan merilis album debut mereka. Single berikut ini merupakan yang pertama dipublikasi untuk publik dan akan menjadi bagian dari album baru nanti, judulnya Never Never. Sekilas mirip lagu-lagunya Mojave tapi dengan suara vokal yang lebih menjorok ke dalam musiknya, terutama gitar yang menonjol. Lumayan, mendengarkan single ini menjadi semacam nostalgia menuju suasana pagi hari yang cerah berhubung akhir-akhir ini mendung terus. Never Never bisa kalian dengarkan dibawah ini, dan hey, mereka bilang boleh diunduh gratis. Enjoy!
