Freeloader Friday: Tape Deck Mountain, K-X-P, PAWS, The Appleseed Cast, HOTT MT, Jaws, The Story So Far, and AraabMuzik
For all you South By Southwesters, the weekend started a week ago and never really stopped. Please, don’t rub it in. But for the rest of you deprived of the joys of SXSW, we have a host of song and video premieres to get your Friday nice and festive.
To start off, Tape Deck Mountain‘s new single is sure to take you on an epic mental trip, followed by The Appleseed Cast‘s “Great Lake Derelict,” which channels summer vibes for your leisurely listening pleasure. If you’re really bummed you missed SXSW this year, K-X-P and PAWS are both featured on NPR’s SXSW preview (oh, the acronyms!), guaranteed to aurally transport you to Austin, Texas. In addition, Jaws looks for a friend, The Story So Far finds space, and AraabMuzik gets mythological with their respective music video premieres.
But the story of the week really comes from HOTT MT, who went from Wayne Coyne stalkers to collaborators in just a year’s time. The group is performing with The Flaming Lips frontman this weekend at their SXSW set. Check out the links below for the full scoop!
