Download: Free Mp3s to Feed Your Harlem Shakes Obsession


Most “buddy’s bands” fall somewhere between minor disturbance and bar disaster, so we count ourselves lucky to have an in with Harlem Shakes — (guitarist Todd Goldstein once edited for Flavorpill). Amigos aside, the band’s full-length debut, Technicolor Health, grips the number-one slot on several of our editors’ iPods. And we’re not the only ones on the bandwagon: the Village Voice has called the group “lethally charming and poised for certain success,” while the Washington Post hailed their new record as a “welcome arrival.” Not bad… especially for a friend.

After the jump, a sweet live video and two essential downloads from the album.

1. Harlem Shakes – “Strictly Game” A manifesto of sorts, sunshine-laden single “Strictly Game” posits that “this will be a better year.” Of course, it leaves out the rest of the sentence: “if and when this songs gets the inevitable licensing love.” Where ya at iPhone?!. [Download MP3]

2. Harlem Shakes – “Sunlight” Transitioning from a synth-driven acoustic jam to an all-out rock anthem, “Sunlight” is an exuberant ode to infinity. [Download MP3]
