A bunch of freebies from the excellent Merge Records. Leftfield indie guitary for the most part, and not all of it is brilliant (I could barely listen to the dull proto-metalgrunge of Archers of Loaf) but a couple of gems. And you can find out what all the Wild Flag chat is about. Well, not ‘all’, but you can make a snap judgement based on one track ;)


Hospitality – “Betty Wang”
Richard Buckner – “Traitor”
Lambchop – “Gone Tomorrow”
Crooked Fingers – “Bad Blood”
Superchunk – “Driveway to Driveway”
The Mountain Goats – “Estate Sale Sign”
Eleanor Friedberger – “My Mistakes”
Imperial Teen – “Runaway”
Archers of Loaf – “Harnessed In Slums”
Wild Flag – “Romance”
Stephin Merritt – “Rot in the Sun”
The Rosebuds – “Go Ahead”

There are also a couple of Christmas tunes to stream on the website.
