Freeloader Friday: Office Romance, Ra Ra Riot, Heathered Pearls, Hey Sholay, Vintage Trouble and Sophie Auster
We have exciting new stuff for you this week including a Holiday Single of the Week on iTunes, with Frenchkiss Records’ Office Romance — because seriously, isn’t the office holiday party the best time to explore that building chemistry from the past few months…? If that’s not your schtick, no worries, the song works on its own too.
In addition, we have a brand new single courtesy of Ra Ra Riot, whose highly anticipated new album is hitting the streets next month; a full album stream from Heathered Pearls‘ new album, which came out this week; a new track from Hey Sholay; and two very different but well worthwhile live performances from the one and only Vintage Trouble on The Late Show with David Letterman – watch it while you can! — and the ever-lovely Sophie Auster with a live version of “Run Run Run” for Soundcheck WNYC.
Happy office romances, parties and listening!
