A finally wrapped package of audio/video gifts for our readers.

BC Music Goodie Bag: Breathe Owl Breathe, The Chap, The Futureheads

In this edition of the Goodie Bag we bring you news and audio/video clips from Breathe Owl Breathe, The Chap, and The Futureheads. Also, a new feature — all the links to find these band's online are located at the end of each section.

Breathe Owl Breathe

Breathe Owl Breathe's new album, Magic Central, won't be released until September 28, but at the Goodie Bag we have a preview of the new single "Own Stunts" to share.

Each member of the trio brings their own set of eclectic traits and life experiences to Breathe Owl Breathe and the resulting music is something very different from the ordinary fare. But why take my word for it when all you have to do is click below and listen to the new single.

The Chap

The Chap's second single, "Even Your Friend," from their fourth album Well Done Europe, is out this week, and the Goodie Bag has a first look right here.

Sometime a listener just wants their music to be fun, and the concept isn't lost on The Chap. You need look no further than the video below to tap into their sense of humor (and all the animal slide puzzles are cute!). If you’re into electro-tinged pop-rock, I think you'll be into the Chap. They hail from London, and released Well Done Europe after two years of writing and touring.

The Futureheads

As we move from forward, we have another creative video. "I Can't Do That" is animated, but it wasn't done in the typical fashion. Each member went through a tiresome process to have their animated selves look as real as possible – giving the video a live action feel.

"I Can Do That" is yet another infectious song with the energy of a rock anthem. It hails from The Chaos, which was released in early June.
