Video exclusives from The Smittens and Winston Echo!
What’s really impressed us this year with the Indietracks blog is just how much effort some of the bands have made with their blog contributions, particularly videos! Earlier on here we featured smashing videos from the likes of Paisley and Charlie and MJ Hibbett, and today it’s the turn of the ever-excitable Smittens and train fan Winston Echo.
The Smittens have made a “fun lil’ video about indietracks enthusiasm and tips and looking forward to things and stuff”. They reveal their favourite Indietracks food, bands they’re looking forward to seeing, but we have to warn you some of the performances are a bit ‘two-dimensional’. You’ll have to watch it to see what we mean!
The Smittens have a new remix album coming out on July 19th on Oddbox records. There’s details and a player where you can stream all the tracks on the Oddbox website. They also have a bunch of shows pre- and post- indietracks – check out their last.fm events page for full details.
Winston Echo has also made a train-related especially for our blog, which has made us all nostalgic for previous festivals and longing for this year’s to arrive. The video’s below and you can also download the MP3 free here: Train Song
