Free Music Friday! Super Special Bumper Edition!

Are you excited? You should be!

Today I'm happy to announce the very first "Super Special Bumper Edition" of Free Music Friday, featuring freely downloable aweomeness from not 1, but 3 fantastic local acts!

First up, the biggest of them all; a release that's being called an EP, but with 8 full songs and one 28 second long casio loop and people screams jam, it's closer to short album than an EP. I was lucky enough to get a taste of the joy of Beach Party in Cape Town a few weekends back. Comprised of 4 boys and a girl, this band is easily one of the most exciting new acts to emerge out of South Africa in 2011. And considering they've already recorded and released what pretty much counts as an album in my eyes, they're showing the kind of can-do attitude that's just what we need to save us from the usual snail-pace lethargy that plauges so many local acts.
Next, firm "Free Music Friday" favourite, Yo Grapes, breaks into the new year with yet another gem. This time, Craig's filling you in what he's getting up to over his holidays!
And finally, Yesterday's Pupil has unveiled the second installment in his ongoing, free-to-download series of singles, leading up to the release of his second album. Once again collaberating with his frequent partners in crime Louis Minnaar & Tumi, "Deul" see's P-Dawg further expanding his borders with two songs that sound nothing like anything he's released to date!
