Mp3 Menagerie: The Octagon, Bottle Up & Go, The Iron Age

The Octagon – Suicide Kings (mp3) *

I like that the current crop of “indie-rock” bands seem to have a slight 1990s “alterna-rock” influence to their music. This song is from The Octagon’s upcoming album Warm Love and Cool Dreams Forever, which will be released on January 5th, 2010.

Bottle Up & Go – Rather Be Dead (mp3) *

Bottle Up & Go play an interesting mix of Leadbelly-influenced blues and modern indie-rock. This song is their new album, which doesn’t have a title or release date yet. Check the links below in the coming months for updates.

The Iron Age – Burden of Empire (mp3) *

A blast of metal from The Iron Age’s new album The Sleeping Eye. I have no idea what the guy is screaming, but it’s good headbanger music.
