This Valentine’s Day weekend, barely legal mp3s will run wild and free across the Internet. Many bands are offering free downloads of songs from upcoming albums, and we’ll be compiling and posting them here as they roll in. On deck so far is new material from Aidan Moffat (from Arab Strap), the Handsome Family, Mobius Band and Casiotone For The Painfully Alone (how apropos). Remember: You’re never alone if you have a killer mixtape (and maybe some ditchweed and an Xbox).
Aidan Moffat was, and is, a miserable Scottish bastard best known for his membership in Arab Strap, the drunk, evil, foul-mouthed and generally more fun cousin of Glasgow mates Belle And Sebastian back in the Scottish-pop golden era. How To Get To Heaven From Scotland (Chemikal Underground), his latest LP under the name Aidan Moffat And The Best-Ofs, is out next month. Download an mp3 of album track “Big Blonde” here or stream the song below.
