Through a recent e-mail newsletter, Ra Ra Riot has made these two songs available for free download via Soundcloud. You can use the embedded player below to listen to and/or download the songs. If you like well-crafted indie rock-techno pop, I think you’ll like these tunes.
#1 is the Submarines remix of the Ra Ra Riot song “Oh, La” which, according to their newsletter of 30 January 2012, has never been released anywhere before. The original version of the song appeared on their excellent 2008 album The Rhumb Line. This remixed version has a particularly Phoenix-like quality to it, if perhaps a little bit more slick.
Enjoy the free music! (I hope to create a page with links to free – and legal – downloads soon…)
(And it appears that the Soundcloud player does not load on the mobile version of the blog; you can go to this Soundcloud web page directly for the player…)
