APRIL FREE DOWNLOADS BONANZA!!!

We’re promoting 10 free downloads we’ve found to make up for not giving you any in March! These are some of the finest examples of what is going on in Yorkshire & the North East right now!
allusondrugs – How High?
Swirling, brooding, hooks & amazing guitar sounds. Loads of nice things being said about these fellas & with comparisons to My Bloody Valentine, Ride, Nine Black Alps & Teenage Fanclub. Plenty more to come this year.
St Gregory Orange – My Exile Year
Glitchy, pulsing & beautiful. Lovely lyrics that make you feel like you’re there with them. Another gem from Philophobia & surely an indication that the rest of the album is pretty stunning & worth a couple of quid?
Louise Distras – Shades Of Hate
Swinging from raw & confrontational to tender & beautiful throughout, Louise uses every aspect of her voice & lyrical talent perfectly here. There aren’t enough praises I can give her, someone who inspires & believes completely in what she is doing. I don’t know anyone who works harder. As well as Shades Of Hate you can get another 3 free downloads at her site.
COWTOWN – Monotone Face
Upbeat, fun & challenging you to show your emotion & maybe have a dance shall we??? Finally grown into their person suits & about to unleash one of the finest albums you’ll hear this year. This track contains some of the best hi-hattery you will ever hear! To hear a track from their album check out our podcast (https://soundcloud.com/cluerecords/clue-records-podcast-3)
Esper Scout – Shed Some Light
Esper Scout are having a manic couple of months. Playing & hosting gigs, shooting & promoting videos, recording new material & then separate side projects going on too means they never stop. This track is up for free & picks up where their live shows leave off, great harmonies over a driven backing track, building to a peak of the big riff breakdown.
Menace Beach – Drop Outs
A band making huge waves (like on a beach??? Yeah??? Yeah!!! Sorry). Fuzzed up, dreamy swirl-pop. It’s Pay What You Want so if you’re feeling generous then it’s worth sending something their way! Another track of theirs features on our monthly podcast, hear Dream Out here: https://soundcloud.com/cluerecords/clue-records-podcast-3
Wot Gorilla? – Snow White
Downbeat to upbeat in seconds, ever-twiddling & stunningly melodic. Something else live, you end up half in awe & half questioning whether there’s a backing track at play due to the tightness of it all.
B>E>A>K – Night Owls
I first saw B>E>A>K at Beacons festival last year & was blown away. Live they’ve energetic & amazing. This & ‘Get Ya Beak On’ from the B>E>A>K release ‘The Blue Edition’ are unbelievably good. This is the fourth edition they’ve put out (check out the Yellow, White & Red editions too, all free!). The band features members of Field Music, Razmattaz Lorry Excitement, This Ain’t Vegas & The Lake Poets.
Nately’s Whore’s Kid Sister – Babies
Dark. Broods & builds really slowly into an atmospheric drone ball. Stunning vocals just float perfectly over the top of it all.
Just Handshakes – London Bound
A newly shaped Just Handshakes have set a firm marker down for their new material. London Bound has echoes of New Order with beautiful dreamy vocals riding right over the top. Extremely catchy & an amazing slice of what credible indie-pop music can be.
