Happy Friday everyone! I don’t know about you, but this one seems particular welcome. It’s the first Friday of Spring, the sun is shining (at least in New York!), SXSW fever is over and it’s time to relax.
To help, we’ve got free tunes for you as usual, starting with an awesome cover of Queen’s “You’re My Best Friend” by The Melvins in anticipation of their upcoming album, chock full of even more awesome covers. Next, get reacquainted with The Virgins through the full album stream of their just released gem. Way Yes and Julian Lynch preview tracks from their albums too, and to close out, immerse yourself in The Waiting Room with The Story So Far — it’s a sesh you don’t want to miss.
Happy Spring (or Autumn if you’re in the lower hemisphere)!
