Freeloader Friday: Emma Louise, The Story So Far, Javelin, The Black Angels, Beacon, Azari & III, and Local Natives
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.”
