I just noticed that my hotlinkfiles account ran out of bandwith. This can be explained by the growing visitor rate of this blog. Which of course is a good thing! Unfortunately are free accounts at hotlinkfiles limited to a 4GB bandwidth each 15 days. And more users means more use of bandwith, especially if other blogs are using my links on their blog!
I thought about a solution, and all I came up with, is asking you, the readers for a small donation so I can buy a VALUE account at hotlinkfiles for a monthly price of only $4,99. That value account will give me an bandwith of 30GB and UNLIMITED download speed for YOU! (More here)
To give a little donation, press the Paypal button on the sidebar/menu. (will be up soon)
Thanks a million in advance, for helping us out, and giving us the oppertunity to share more music with you!
If you have a better solution; please comment!
UPDATE: I upgraded my account, songs will load a lot faster now, and we have a bandwith of 30GB, thanks to Jelmer for the donation!

"We formed in 2006, having met on the dancefloors of London’s indiepop and northern soul clubs. Before we’d actually played a gig, we appeared on the indiepop compilation The Kids At The Club alongside Voxtrot, I'm From Barcelona and Lucky Soul. In April 2007, we headlined the first ever Indietracks event on a 1950s steam railway in Derbyshire. That year we also played shows across the country alongside bands including Fanfarlo, Monica Queen, The School, Radio Luxembourg, Butcher Boy and Saturday Looks Good To Me. We also released our debut single, Cross The Line, on Atomic Beat Records, and featured on a Smalltown America compilation, following in the footsteps of The Go! Team and Blood Red Shoes. In 2008, we hit the summer festivals, including the Rip It Up festival (Sweden), Offset festival, and The Mix festival in London. We also returned to the Indietracks Festival, to play alongside The Wedding Present, Los Campesinos! Darren Hayman and The Wave Pictures. We also released our debut EP 'Waking UP', and even got played on BBC 6Music!"

Having shared the stage with such music scene luminaries as Juliana Hatfield, Patti Labelle, 10,000 Maniacs, Steve Winwood, Margot & The Nuclear So & So’s, Kenny Loggins and The Wallflowers, the Chicago Arts and Entertainment Magazine has recognized Katie Todd as “a breath of fresh air that the Chicago music scene has been waiting for.” She released her first album "Changing Faces" back in 2002 and was named best indie release on WXRT Chicago that year. After releasing a LIVE album in 2003; she released her second studio album "Make Some Time For Wasting" in 2005. After intensive touring Katie took a short break and shifted her focus primarily to writing new music. Now she is back in the studio recording her third album, "Mumbled Speech" , slated for release sometime this year.It was pretty hard choosing two preview tracks of the album, so please try to listen to the full thing!
New Moscow started in the spring of 2005, and is the creation of Division Of Laura Lee guitarist David Fransson. David recorded and produced the album on his own and he also played all the instruments. New Moscow plays indiepop/rock with catchy melodies - noisy but not loud. Both music and lyrics have more in common with singer-songwriters than with the garage-punk rock David otherwise plays in Division Of Laura Lee. Lots have happened since New Moscow started 2005. Andreas Nordström (drums) and Mattias Engwall (bass) have joined the band. The song “Slow Down” has been included in the hit TV Show Grey’s Anatomy… twice. The series is seen by 20 million Americans every week. The first of the two episodes (episode 19 season 2) is aired in Sweden on Kanal 5 by Christmas. A first single, “C’mon Up”, has been released in the UK by the small and credible indie label Young and Lost Club Records. The single attracted alot of attention and will be included in legendary record shop Rough Trades coming compilation. Their next album "Slow Down" will be out early next year.

Cocoanut Groove is the solo project of Olov Antonsson, who began making recordings under that name in the summer of 2007. Joined on his first recordings by Calle Thoor, Mattias Malm, Ivar Lantz, Frida Danielsson, Antonsson formulated sleek, drowsy, mournful indie pop sound reminiscent of the Clientele and rooted in the sweet psychedelia of the Zombies and Mortimer. Cocoanut Groove’s debut seven-inch, “The End of Summer on Bookbinder Road”/ “Shadow”, was released on London’s Phonic Kidnapping Recordings in May 2008. A full-length album, Madeleine Street, is slated for release on the Swedish label Fridlyst later this year.
The Social Services' debut album "It's Nothing Personal, It's National Security" was recorded in Sweden in the Spring of 2008 and will be released Oct. 6th.
