They may have only released two studio albums in their more than 11-year career, but you can always be certain that a new album from New Zealand collective Fat Freddy's Drop will be worth the wait. With Blackbird due to be released in early 2013, the FFD crew have sprung a surprise early Christmas present on us in the form of a free download of the album's first single. And "Silver and Gold" is classic FFD. The soulful, dub-inflected track has their tried-and-tested laid-back vibe, whilst Joe Dukie's vocals transport you to a warm tropical paradise, perfect for those of us in the grip of a seasonal cold snap. Give it a spin, then head to SoundCloud to cop the download.
