Three For Free: Bonaventure, The Night And CandleBox

Christmas is only a little over three months away but if you can’t wait that long until opening your presents – here’s three early gifts from me to you. As usual, I have trawled the world wide web to pick you three of the best MPFrees currently circulating online. Enjoy!


Last December saw Bonaventure cover Fall Out Boy‘s alternative Xmas anthem “Yule Shoot Your Eye Out” with former The Academy Is… frontman and solo singer, William Beckett. Their free download however isn’t a carol – thankfully (embrace the indian summer, friends – don’t start cheering for crimbo). Instead, they offer an acoustic version of their song “Home“.

The Night

When the London baroque pop band aren’t busy re-inventing Rihanna songs, The Night also write their own new material – with a distinctive old sound. Harking back to the 70’s west coat sound, six-piece deliver the brooding “Strangers” – for free. Go get it.

Here’s one thing that can shut up the premature Christmas countdowns, a song about Summer. Forget the Autumn/Winter blues and snag your free download of “Sweet Summertime”, via CandleBox‘s website. Listen to a snippet of the song below to whet your appetite.
