Free Friday (“FL&R”) – June 2

     Free and Legal Downloads? Yes, at least temporarily. Bands often temporarily permit free downloads of their releases.  The end of an offer may be based on the expiration of a set period of time or on a limited number of downloads.  But at least for now, here is a song that qualifies as a Free, Legal and Recommended (FL&R) download.
     Finding songs that can be legally downloaded is easy. The difficult task is to find legally downloadable music that we recommend. Our plan is to post at least one FL&R song each Friday.
     MAKO DC is the French/Irish counterpart to the Canadian band Metric. MAKO just re-released “World Set Alight.” The original is still available as a free download.

     “World Set Alight” stands on its own within the discography of MAKO. And it stands separate from the music of Metric, but has a similar guitar/percussion relationship. The more significant similarity is in the vocals.

     MAKO is primarily Declan O'Shea and Christian Montagne, who were previously with Cyclefly. According to the website of MAKO, contributions to “World Set Alight” were made by Declan O' Shea (vocals), Kierian O'Neill (vocals), Christian Montagne (bass), Ciaran O' Shea (guitar, drums, synth), Christian Montagne (guitar).
