Chris Devotion & The Expectations - The Girl Is Leaving

A track from Armellodie Records label sampler from 2012. Having seen these guys headlining at King Tut's a few weeks ago I was hooked. Give 'em a go! Get the great album Amalgamation And Capital from Amazon.

Frightened Rabbit - Swim Until You Can't See Land

This is the first single from the second (or fourth) album coming in spring 2010 from Scottish band Frightened Rabbit (it all depends on whether you include the demo album Sing the Greys and the live album Liver! Lung! Fr!). The follow-up to 2008's Midnight Organ Fightjudging by this track the as yet unnamed new album should put them up on a par with with headline act Biffy Clyro who they recently supported in London.

Penguin Cafe Orchestra - Perpetuum Mobile

Not the usual fare today - some classical music for you.

This has totally stuck in my mind and it's the theme from a great new show on CBS called 3 Lbs. which I believe is the replacement for the very short-lived Smith.

They've got that current Indie Brit sound but 5-piece Morland are Swedish. Founded in Stockholm in 2003 by lead vocalist Andreas Morland they had a fair bit of domestic sucess in 2005 with this single, and they're currently showcasing their talents in the UK.

Morland - Ants Don't Sleep

Morland - 1994

There are plenty more tracks to download via their website.

..and of course they've got a My Space page.
