Freeloader Friday: Four Year Strong, The Raveonettes, Naomi Shelton & The Gospel Queens, Big Freedia, The Black Angels, & Suicide Silence

Four Year Strong: Go Down In HistoryWe’ve made it to another Friday, folks. Whether the week dragged on or flew by, it always feels good to reach the weekend, amiright?! Let’s kick this weekend off with the latest and greatest in albums, videos, and more!

Start strong with the latest album from Four Year Strong. It’s Punk at its finest – full of riffs and laced with breakdowns. Next up, the surprise release from The Raveonettes will not disappoint. It’s been considered akin to “surfing in the rain,” and if that’s not a magical sonic dream, I don’t know what is. Then, go back to ’60s Soul with Naomi Shelton & The Gospel Queens as she sings and swings over tracks that will make you want to get up and dance.

Get ready to be distracted for hours with the extremely addicting new Soundboard from Big Freedia. Listen to the Queen’s most iconic phrases on command and on repeat!

Finish off with some new videos to round out your week. The Black Angels take concert footage to a psychedelic level, while Suicide Silence has a stare-down complete with hair-flipping, guitar-thrashing, and some unexpected guests in the form of snakes and spiders.

That does it for this week. Pat yourself on the back for successfully reaching another Friday, and enjoy the weekend, Freeloaders!

The Black Angels: Clear Lake ForestSo the World Cup is over…now what? It seems that everyone’s got just a bit more time on their hands since Germany scored that epic final goal, solidifying themselves as winners of the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil. I say, what better way to fill your new-found free-time than with this week’s best new music? Sit back and enjoy this all-star lineup!

We’ve got full album streams galore this week. Start with the much anticipated new release from The Black Angels — it’s modern Psychedelic Rock that’ll have you addicted at first listen. Next, turn to Canadian duo PS I Love You as they prove once more that their minimalist Indie Rock is edgy and excellent. After that, get lost in the sullen Art-Rock instrumentals that make up Mogwai‘s 15th anniversary reissue of their 1994 album. Then, go Hardcore with To The Wind as they explore the universal feelings of loneliness, heartbreak, and getting older.

Looking for a quick music fix? No problem! These short, sweet sampler tracks’ll do the trick. Check out The Raveonettes‘ gritty new track filled with the Danish duo’s trademark harmonies over noisy guitar and sparkling harp. Then, get sassy with Princess Superstar as she works her Hip-Hop magic on a 90′s Indie-Pop classic. Following in the Hip-Hop genre, listen to Souls of Mischief‘s rap about reliability in true vintage fashion. Finally, Amp Live goes Electronic with their new Dirt Monkey remix that is rave-ready.

To wrap it all up, we’ve got plenty of music videos to entertain you this week! Catey Shaw teams up with director Jon Jon Augustavo to give Bushwick’s hipster gals the perfect summer anthem. Naomi Shelton & The Gospel Queens meld the past and present in the video for this southern soulful belle’s latest R&B track. Kid Vishis goes gangster in the studio (and the forest) with brother Royce da 5’9″ and Marvwon in his new Rap track. Last but not least, Temara Melek dances her way through her catchy Pop track that’ll have you hitting repeat.

French Style FursHappy July! We’re now in the heart of summer, which means BBQs, splashing in the pool, bike rides in the park, and infinite ice cream. Plus fresh tunes, right? No season is complete without music to dance to, so read on for what you need to hear this week!

Start off your weekend with some rockin’ full album streams. First up, Indie supergroup French Style Furs‘ moody debut will not disappoint — one-third We Barbarians plus two-thirds Cold War Kids equals Alt-Rock perfection. Then, prepare for your face to be blown off with the latest from Suicide Silence. It’s extreme Metal like you’ve never heard extreme Metal before. Recover from that with Honeyblood‘s new album full of simple melodic Pop tunes that will leave you wanting more.

Next up, we’ve got the tracks you won’t want to miss. Jessica Hernandez & The Deltas are back with another preview of the new album. It’s a sassy and Soulful track that will have you singing along in no time. Get moving with Rock icon Ted Nugent on his upbeat new track, and then experience “exuberant sadness” with Indie-Rockers The Rural Alberta Advantage on their latest track. Finally, go on a Psychedelic-Funk journey with The Budos Band on their new over-the-top Soul jam.

Now, it’s time for some videos! Princess Superstar takes over Times Square with a twerk party in the new video for her latest Hip-Hop slap. Also check out: Handguns‘ Pop-Punk family reunion takeover and The Slow Revolt‘s Electronic-Soul black-and-white melodrama.

Have a great weekend, Freeloaders!

Freeloader Friday: The Black Angels, Catey Shaw, Souls of Mischief, PS I Love You, The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, To The Wind, Kina Grannis, French Style Furs, Amp Live, & Animal Years

The Black Angels: Clear Lake ForestAs the month of June comes to a close, and the World Cup ramps up, it’s time to keep that summer energy going. Good news: we’ve got the best music and videos from this week to pump you up as we head into the weekend!

We’re starting strong with a bunch of tracks this week! The Black Angels are back with their classic Indie Rock fuzz, and this time it even has a psychedelic edge. Then, Catey Shaw croons on her new catchy Pop anthem about love conquering all. Go old-school with Souls of Mischief‘s latest track featuring Snoop Dogg and produced by Adrian Younge. It’s a Hip-Hop call to action about living in the present. Next, PS I Love You laments about leaving home through grainy guitars and crowd-led back-up vocals. The Pains of Being Pure at Heart lighten things up in typical Indie fashion with addictive hooks over cascading keys. Finally, things get intense on the latest from To The Wind. It’s a Hardcore apology, and you won’t be the one who’s sorry.

Now, for some eye candy, watch Singer-Songwriter Kina Grannis wander the forest at night in the brand new video for her dark, but ethereal lead single. Then, check out French Style Furs‘ new black and white music video. The song is “poetic punk urgency” and the video is as artsy as it gets. Amp Live muses on money’s eternal ability to change people in the video for his Oakland Hip-Hop take on the Biggie Smalls sentiment “mo’ money, mo’ problems.” Finally, go back to the 70′s with the new video for Animal Years‘ “jolt of musical serotonin.” You’ll be dancing right along with Bailey Noble (yes, she’s from True Blood) and wishing you too lived in 1972 Palm Springs, CA.

Well there you have it, Freeloaders! Enjoy your weekend!

Freeloader Friday: Blackburner, Ted Nugent, Laurel, Kid Astray, Mortals, Lusine, Chicago, Cowbell, & Incan Abraham

Blackburner: From Dusk To Dub album coverWith the World Cup in full swing, it’s time to take a break from watching the latest match and instead rock out to some music. Lucky for you, we’ve got the perfect set of tunes to fill the weekend.

There are a record six new tracks for you this week! Get your Trap on with the latest from Blackburner, an innovative EDM banger featuring Yellowman. Then, Ted Nugent will have you Rockin’ and Rollin’ along to the newest song from his upcoming album. This inspirational track encourages listeners to “never stop dreaming” while electric guitars jam in the background. Chill out with a dreamy track from Laurel that evokes somber sentiments over Electronic-meets-Folk instrumentation. Kid Astray takes “summer jam” to a whole new meaning with the M83 and Pet Shop Boys influenced title track from their upcoming EP. This is Indie Synth-Pop at its finest. Next, go dark with the surprise-filled “thrashed boogie” from Black Metal band Mortals. Finally, listen to Lusinefind beauty in strange places” via subtle beats and pulsing synths.

Now, enjoy an eclectic mix of music videos! First, go old-school with the Brass-fueled Rock of the new (but quintessentially) Chicago track that backs their homemade-style music video. Then, take a journey to the Spanish desert with Soul-Rock duo Cowbell in the video for the latest track from their upcoming album. Lastly, time travel to another era in the video for Incan Abraham’s luscious, percussive Synth-Pop track.

And that’s a wrap, Freeloaders. Enjoy your weekend!
