Trinitron: Subsidence -- Now online!

Trinitron have finished recording their new mini-album, Subsidence. Why not go and have a listen to it on Soundcloud now?

On the group's new Soundcloud page, you can also hear their new cover of Edge by electro-idols Perfume:

Rummage around the page and you can hear their earlier More Real than News EP in its entirety and their first recording, a cover of the Candies' Heart no Ace ga Detekonai.

Christmas Presents from Canada

According to their web site: "Poulet Neige takes Santa Claus' spot and offers more than 140 albums to the music lovers, of all kinds, and from about everywhere in the world. French, English, from Qu├ębec, USA, Canada, indie, folk, rock, metal, hip-hop, known bands, underground bands... But most of all, generous bands. So go make your choice!"

In return for sharing your email with the bands you're interested in, you get a choice of a huge range of free music. They seemed like lovely people and it feels good to be able to do something nice for Christmas, so Call And Response are lending Hyacca's "Hanazono" to their seasonal offer. There are more than a hundred albums on their page, so there's sure to be something to attract your interest. See the list HERE.

They also have a Facebook page and a they made a promotional video (below):
