This week I'm unleashing the "Town & Country EP" on you. Four whole tracks of unreleased music by me and for this I am truly sorry.
This collection of music was written just after I graduated from art school in 2002 / 2003. Listening back to the tracks now it's clear that I was listening to a lot of instrumental hip hop, Four Tet and jazz. I clearly fancied myself as a bit of a 'crate digger' (this isn't as filthy a euphemism as it sounds) and the foundations of these tracks were crafted with samples from other people's great music. In the spirit of hip hop I shan't reveal my sources here but who knows you might spot some of them – they're not that obscure.
Before I joined forces with Kev and Ziggy I wasn't really in the habit of writing short pop tunes and you'll notice that one of these tracks is over 8 minutes long! Some might call it epic. Others indulgent. I'll let you judge for yourselves.
I'm presently racking my little, pickled brain trying to come up with funny things to say about this week's free music. I can't. Perhaps I should have let Ziggy Pop write this week's entry although that would have really been asking for trouble.
Anyway, I hope you enjoy the EP. Next week's Free Friday is Christmas Eve and we shall be gifting you an entire album's worth of goodies. We're giving away the Found Can Move remix album Can Found Move. It's a wondrous assortment of interpretations of our debut album with stunning contributions from: Dimlite, Reuben Taylor (James Yorkston / Deaf Mutes), Fudge Fingas, S-Type, Joe Acheson (Hidden Orchestra), The Blessings (LuckyMe), Mapa (Pilooski and Laurent Pastor) and 7VWWVW (aka MAMMAL). What a gift!
