Give Child Of Lov’s ‘Rotisserie’ A Spin

This is a track that will not appear on the forthcoming debut from Child Of Lov.

However, the debut does feature collaborations with Damon Albarn, DOOM and many more.

COL was discovered by Trey Reames, who hooked up Cee-Lo Green and Dangermouse (And we all know how that turned out!) His track ‘Heal’ caught the attention of Damon Albarn.

Keep an eye on his Facebook page for free tunes as well as daily pearls of spiritual wisdom from the digital shaman. 

Take Psychic Ill’s New Song With You

Take Psychic Ill’s New Song With You

This is probably the most accessible Psychic Ills song to date.

‘Take Me You’ finds the band spending a lot of time in VU territory like they did on their recent album Hazed but this time out, they seem to be moving towards more straightforward songwriting along with the upfront vocals.

They’re currently working on their new album, Look for it on Sacred Bones in early 2013.
