At the end of June I bought an apartment and since spent every spare minute tearing down wallpaper (wallpaper is evil people), painting, going to Ikea, putting up blinds, curtains, shelves and lots more. I am exhausted and this blog has suffered. I am leaving on a two week, Internet free holiday this weekend, and I don't want to let July go by without at least one post. So here's 6 free running songs for July to tide you over. I promise in August and September to post a lot, I actually have a bunch of songs backed-up that I want you all to know about.
As usual all songs are available on Epitonic for free and legal download. To download the song, click on the name of the song. The band name links to the Epitonic page about the band. They all are close to 90 BPM so work for a 180 SPM (strides per minute) run.
Angels by The xx 91 BPM
British indie pop, catchy enough to be a hit, real enough for me to like it.
Sinful Nature (Anika with BestMate Remix) by Bear In Heaven 90 BPM
Booklyn indie pop / electronica. According to last.fm, "the sound of the band incorporates influences from psychedelic music, electronic music and krautrock."
Love (Epitonic saki Sessions) by Secret Colours 91 BPM
From Chicago, Secret Colours, sounds like an American version of Ride to me. Garage rock.
Baze by The-Drum 90 BPM
Again from Chicago, The-Drum play and ambient electronic This is my favourite track on the list.
Ghostsong by Daniel Knox 91 BPM
Chicago singer songwriter with a carbaret twist, would sound nice on a mix tape with some Shayer James and Dresden Dolls.
Ex-Dreams by The Men 91 BPM
Booklyn indie rock, very good high-energy fast-sounding runnable track.
