[ Music ] ^M00:00:05 >> Peter Gavin: Welcome to Crossfade TV, I'm Peter Gavin. >> And these are our picks taken straight from out site, www.music.download.com. My pick this week is Broken Social Scene presents Kelvin Drew. >>And the song that's getting a lot of traffic is Tbtf. ^M00:00:18 [ Music ] ^M00:00:24 >> Peter Gavin: The acronym stands for Too Beautiful to F, which would make for a funny hip-hop song. >> But Drew's moody Indie rock style is much, more proper looking then it is humorous. >> The rest of the album is amazing all the way through with songs like the Lucky Ones. ^M00:00:37 [ Music ] ^M00:00:43 >> Kevin Drew lives up to the broken social scene name with his debut solo album, and keeps him and his Canadian buddies in the scene. >> We have a free download of Tbtf, so check it out on our site. >> Anngie Dehoyos: Hey everyone, I'm Anngie Dehoyos. And my pick for this week is one of my personal music heroes, known as Dave Gahan. >> And he's got a new album out called HourGlass. ^M00:01:02 [ Music ] ^M00:01:12 >> Anngie Dehoyos: The name Dave Gahan should sound familiar. >> He's the lead singer of the 80's iconic synth [assumed spelling] band, Depeche Mode. >> And his new single Kingdom is a powerful synth number to loose yourself in. ^M00:01:22 [ Music ] ^M00:01:27 >> We also have a heavily electrostatic [assumed spelling] remix of Kingdom by electro band Digitalism. >> It sounds like a bootleg of a pristinely dubbed Depeche Mode remix played in a too cool for school underground New York club. ^M00:01:38 [ Music ] ^M00:01:43 >> Anngie Dehoyos: So if I were you, I'd come back the week of October 23rd because we will be hosting the full album stream of Hourglass for a limited time. >> Just make sure you search for Dave Gahan on www.music.download.com. See you then. >> Hi. I'm Kurt from Download music. And my Crossfade TV pick this week is a new favorite of mine, Richard Hawley. >> He's got a brand new album out now called Lady's Bridge. ^M00:02:04 [ Music ] ^M00:02:11 >> Richard Hawley's been recording for years now, both on his own, and with his former band the Longpigs. >> I guess I'm a little slow on the draw, but I'm glad I caught onto the guy finally because he really shares a lot in common with other favorites of mine, like Jarvis Cocker, and especially Nick Lowe. Check out what I mean on this first single from Ladies Bridge. >> The song's called Tonight the Treats Are Ours. ^M00:02:31 [ Music ] ^M00:02:39 >> We've got a bunch of his songs on the site for free download. >> So if you're a fan of Nick Lowe, Charlie Rich, all with whom he toured for a while, by the way. Or any sort of moody songwriting that makes this country's pop and soul. >> It's a good bet you'll be as knocked out as I am by Richard Hawley. ^M00:02:54 [ Music ]
