You made it through the week, and even better, the month of February! Now, it’s time to spring into the weekend (seasonal jokes are the best), and we’ve got a smattering of new music that is sure to make your first Friday of March a jam-packed party. So, bust out your headphones and crank your stereo’s volume to 11 because this Freeloader Friday is full of hits.
This week, we’ve got a bunch of song premieres for you, including a certified headbanger from The Black Angels‘ anticipated full-length release, Indigo Meadow, and a blistering new song from The Story So Far. Beacon is providing the mellow vibes to your weekend with a triptastic track from their upcoming album, and Emma Louise is breaking out with her newest single, “Freedom” — an atmospheric song with a dance-inducing beat, perfect for any after-party soundtrack.
Still want more music? Well, you’re in luck because Javelin is treating us all to a full album stream of Hi Beams, and Azari & III are spinning a fresh remix off their new record, aptly titled Remix Album. And if you’re in the mood for videos, then Local Natives have you covered with a live acoustic performance of “Breakers.”
