[SKOA Premiere] Findlay - "Off & On" (Romare Remix)

We introduced you to Manchester's Findlay last September via her track "You Gave Me Grace", and since then we've been eager to get more raw sounding material from her in your face blues. Her latest single, "Off & On", is every bit as great as we'd expected and today we've got a great little treat to offer up to you guys. It's a mind boggling remix of that track from Romare, who you may of heard of via his great sounding remix of Alt-J's "Breezeblocks".

Taking the original and cutting it up into smaller portions, he warps the foot stomping track into a frenzy of chopped samples and dance inducing early morning club sounds. The kind of early morning sounds you'll find yourself rocking back and forth after a few too many beers at 4am, except the rocking is brought on entirely by Romare's remix. Wonderful stuff, and perfect for your Tuesday afternoon. Grab yourselves the free download below.

For more information about the wonderful Findlay, why not check out her official website, on which you can grab a download of "Off & On" in its original state.

Today we get their opinions and thoughts on album closer, "Picture A Knife Fight". You can check out the video clip above along with streaming the track in full below. I've had this album on repeat for months and it's the gift that just keeps on giving. Seriously.

[SKOA Premiere] Track-By-Track Through Biffy Clyro's New Album, 'Opposites' (Part Four)

This week we've been treating you guys to some interesting bits of video from Biffy Clyro, in which they talk us through their fantastic new double LP, Opposites. Today is no different and following videos about "The Thaw", "A Girl and His Cat", and "Accident Without Emergency" we today get a look at what the band have to say about the rather intriguing sounding "Spanish Radio". The track itself is one that'll grab your attention immediately when you hear the album, what with it featuring a mariachi band! They talk about the difficulties the guest musicians had with the timings and of drinking plenty of tequila after recording. Along with that you can stream the track in full below to see what they're talking about with a little more context. We'll have our final part of this series coming tomorrow, so keep your eyes pointed towards SKoA.
