Quick Update: Free on iTunes!

Just a quick note that anyone who uses iTunes should definitely check out the free single this week by Young The Giant. They're a band I hadn't heard of until this past September when I looked to see who was opening for Marina and the Diamonds when I was going to see her. They played and they were really great. They remind me a lot of The Killers, if anyone. I see big things for them, and the free song they're giving out is "My Body", which is a particularly good track.

Also available on iTunes this week as a "Discovery Download" is "Marathon" by the band Tennis. This is another great tune definitely worth a click to download.

As I've mentioned before, in the past few years one of my biggest discoveries, at least in so much as bands I can't seem to stop listening to repeatedly and have become a bit of an ear worm for me, is Dragonette. On numerous occasions I've gone in search of similar bands so I can share the love. Alas, I've not found anything that's gotten to me quite like they have, but that doesn't mean I haven't made some worthwhile discoveries along the way.

One such discovery is the British pop artist Florrie. She's completely pop, bubble gum dancefloor-ready, but she's enjoyable, and more importantly, offering her introductory EP for free. She's currently unsigned by choice and trying to spread the word on her music as virally as possible, so this is me doing my part for her cause.

You can download her entire EP, as well as a boatload of remixes, and in March, her next EP, on her website HERE.

Songs "Summer Nights" and "Call of the Wild" are my favorites.
