Britney Spears and Kevin Federline were married in a surprise ceremony ten years ago today. I know, this wasn’t exactly a match made in heaven. But it produced Britney and Kevin: Chaotic - one of the greatest horrible reality TV shows of the 2000s with a great and horrible theme song that you can hear after the jump!
Happy Free Tuesday! Click after the jump and fork over your email for the Little Lover EP from Foreign Fields.
Now based in Nashville, Foreign Fields started out in Wisconsin, undoubtedly in the same magical forest where Bon Iver hides out, no? But after listening to the title track - the first song off their album-in-progress, set to be released next summer - I’m thinking they took a detour through Sufjan Stevens’ Illinois on their way south.
This week’s Free Tuesday is “New Cross” by the London-based, Alternative-rock band Dry the River. (click the link and enter your email; a download link will be sent to your email). The band has recently released their second album, Alarms in the Heart, and is now on tour.
This week’s Free Tuesday is “Rushmore” by the quirky, Seattle-based electro-pop singer-rapper Katie Kate. (control-click the post title for the mp3 file)
“Katie Kate is a force. A dark horse with an extensive classical background, she channels her quirky, emotive lyrics through the lenses of hip hop, new wave, black metal and top 40 while never fully belonging to any genre. Entirely self produced, she utilizes her skills as a multi-instrumentalist, electronic musician and composer to build towering pop castles, inhabited by witches and powered by electromagnetic buffalos. Her skills as a rapper are shocking, as a singer impressive, and as a producer unprecedented. Catchy, mesmerizing, dark yet playful, Katie Kate stands alone on the frontier of future pop.” (From her Facebook page - www.facebook.com/katiekatemusic)
