Over at daytrotter.com you can grab two new songs from Death Cab for Cutie off of the upcoming Narrow Stairs. The album isn't out until May 13th but the band sat down with the folks at Daytrotter for a live session and performed "Cath" & "Talking Bird" off the new album, as well as some older tracks worth checking out.
Then at Coldplay.com you can download a free version of their first single "Violet Hill" off of Viva La Vida or Death And All His Friends. The new album, produced by Brian Eno is supposed to see the band experiment with and take a step away from the sound that has made them famous. In a recent interview Chris Martin has said half jokingly ... "on the first record we were very much plagiarizing the Jeff Buckley Radiohead thing" ...." the third record we plagiarized ourselves" ...and now ..."all that we've done really is expand our plagiaristic pallet".
Let us know what you think of the band's new sound.To get the free download of "Violet Hill" click here.
