Free Launch 

Right, we've got some free stuff for you. No, don't thank us yet, you've not listened to them yet.

First up is Karen Louise.

She's apparently the 'Girl next Door' type, though it's safe to say that the girl next door to us isn't quite as keen to be photographed in a chest avoiding dressing gown. Believe us, we've asked.

Anyway, she's got a single coming out soon called Lost in You and, if you sign up to the Secret Society at her website not only will you recieve the unwanted attentions of a government official, demanding to know exactly who Karen Louise is and what threat she poses to the general security to the country, you'll also be able to grab a free download of another track, Fairytale Lies.

She's supported Lemar and is about to go on tour with Journey South. It's not all bad, though, as she's apparently supported Girls Aloud as well. We reckon that she's got quite a lucrative career ahead of her filling in the gaps on Chick Flick soundtracks. Indeed, the free download, Fairytale Lies, is exactly the sort of sng you'd expect to turn up half way through Act 2 in a Hilary Duff movie, just at the point where the boy has left the Duff in the lurch, having not yet realised that they're a perfect match. Don't worry, it'll all work out in the end for her, though.

If, on the other hand, you're looking something with a bit more balls, a bit more guitars, a bit more energy and, indeed, a bit more like a Happy Shopper Muse, then you coudl do worse than check out Cord.

They probably need to get someone in to sort out the electrics.

They too have a singles club - this is clearly the current 'big' idea - and if you sign up you can download I'm Leaving You which, if you ignore the fact that Matt Bellamy and friends does that sorta thing a bit better, is all rather jolly. Well, not jolly, we doubt they could do jolly if they tried, but you get the general idea.

So, there you go. Two tracks for you to download and ponder over. Don't say we're not good to you. If only because the truth hurts.
