Criminal Records In-Store Show: Fanfarlo

The earthy folk music of Fanfarlo seems to have been thoughtfully grown from a seedling planted in a rich "marching band meets motown" soil. The band is rooted in London but their sound is slowly branching out to all parts of the world. Similarities can be drawn between the elements of Fanfarlo and those of bands like Shout Out Louds, Bishop Allen, and Marching Band. We stopped by Criminal Records this weekend to check out their exclusive in-store performance.

Since the show left us wanting for more we were stoked to find out about a free download of the College Radio Sessions EP and the hit single I'm A Pilot from the Reservoir album.

"Free For All Friday" with The Guggenheim Grotto

Our favorite day of the week is upon us once again and we are excited to present the next free download from the Dublin duo known as The Guggenheim Grotto. These Irish men have charmed their way onto our blog with Her Beautiful Ideas and the captivating video which artfully illustrates the song. When first listening to this we thought of bands like Wheat, The Swell Season, and Freelance Whales. The latest album Happy The Man features this hit as well as eleven others. Our suggestion is to start this weekend off right; let's get naked and get under the sheets.

Little Love Blue

A crafter such as Cary Walker makes herself hard to compete with in the handmade world. There is everything to love about the simplicity and elegance of her style, not to mention her beam of feminine energy. Walker is currently situated here in Atlanta and she has been selling her creatures since 2008 from her store known as Little Love Blue. Walker also has an inspiring blog where she shares handmade and vintage finds. Sometimes it can be really nice to embrace the softer side of life and this artist makes that side ever so inviting.

"Free For All Friday" with FOOL'S GOLD

photo credit: Marianne Williams

This week's free song download comes from a band that was formed in Los Angeles and currently consists of ten (yes, ten!) members. Fool's Gold is bonded by cultural diversity with influences stemming from South African, Ethiopian, and Eritrean music as well as the lead singer being from Israel. It would be safe to say this is a lot like listening to The Drums or Vampire Weekend in Hebrew. The band is giving away free mp3 downloads of their single titled Surprise Hotel. Check out their releases from IAMSOUND Records as well as their amazing label mates. As an added bonus you can watch the music video for Surprise Hotel directed by Matthew Lessner.
