Fresh New Music


 


Free downloads: The Bayonets

If you were listening to Triple M on the morning of Thursday July 17th, you may have thought somehow we slipped back to 1965.

But it wasn't an old song we were playing--it was a brand new one from the Los Angeles band the Bayonets, called "Crash Boom Bang!"

They don't have an album out, but if you sign up for their mailing list you can get a free four-song EP here.

Crash Boom Bang! by The Bayonets from The Bayonets / Brian Ray on Vimeo.

Who's excited about the new Coldplay song?

Coldplay is supposedly working on a new album to follow their 2011 release, Milo Xyloto. But we don't have to wait until that album comes out, whenever that will be, to hear a new song.

This week the band debuted the song "Midnight" on their website, and will most likely be playing it live when they to go South by Southwest in Austin, Texas.

I like the dreamy, ethereal nature of the song, but the vocals seem over-processed to me. What do you think?

Fresh New Music : Ellen Foley

Remember the Meatloaf song “ Paradise by the Dashboard Light? Well, the female vocalist was Ellen Foley. Although she did not appear in the video, that’s her voice you hear.
Ellen was also the subject of The Clash’s song “ Should I Stay or Should I Go”, written by her, then boyfriend, Mick Jones.
In addition to being the inspiration for a song, she also has an extensive theater background, appearing in Hair, Tootsie and Fatal Attraction, just to name a few as well as the TV Show Night Court.

And now, 30 years after her last album comes a new one!

Here’s a sample of the first single, “ If You Can’t Be Good”.

Fresh New Music : Sleeper Agent

Sleeper Agent is a band from Kentucky that found their sound when they added female vocalist Alex Kandel to their line-up.

Here’s a sample of their second album, the very catchy song “ Waves”
