Where did the week go? How about a better question, who cares? That’s right, everyone’s favorite day of the week is back, and with it, Freeloader Friday. We have loads of music to satiate your hunger for new tunes this week — so sit back, relax, grab a pair of your favorite headphones and treat your ears to some tasty new tracks.
To kick things off, Palms premiere the first single off their anticipated, eponymous new record over on Pitchfork. The track, aptly titled “Patagonia,” is a dreamy, groove-laden soundscape that will send you floating in the clouds above the southern Andes of South America — no travel guide needed.
The free music rolls on with Tripwires‘ track premiere of “Shimmer,” a Noise-Pop number with enough hooks to have you singing along in no time. In addition, Cassettes Won’t Listen bring the grimy, funk-infused Electronica and Dfalt channels 90’s Trip-Hop sounds (think DJ Shadow with a twist) with their respective song streams. There’s no excuse for you to not bust a move this weekend.
If you’re in the mood for a full album stream then you’re in luck, as AM & Shawn Lee have released all the tracks of their new record before its official drop next week. From dance-y vibes to atmospheric, syncopated rhythms — the album is sure to suit any weekend adventure you have planned. Happy Listening!
