Happy Friday, Freeloaders! We know you’re itching for the end of the workday and your two-day hiatus so to help you in the final stretch, we’ve got a massive list of goodies for your perusing pleasure.
We’ll start with the rockstar Scottish lads of We Were Promised Jetpacks. These fellas recorded the final show from their 2012 US tour and are releasing it to the world next week. Then spend the next 20 minutes with Friend Roulette’s full EP. This one’s a doozy — chock-full of different instruments and variations of sound, this sextet combines Chamber-Pop with Electro-Rock.
You know what’s up next — the tracks. First, we have the Shoegaze rockers of Nothing whose latest track is more ghostly and anthemic in style. It’s a loud one in terms of sound, but more like a lullaby with its slow-moving beat. Next up is Tycho, with a highly infectious and ambient new one to get your feet moving in a danceable groove. But for a dance-club rager of a tune, check out R3HAB’s newest Rave-Pop track. Once the flashing lights have subsided from that one, switch it up with Eaters, who’ve offered up a scratchy and mesmerizing new beat of a track. Enough with all these guys, though! We’re in need of some chicks — so take a listen to Honeyblood’s Garage-Rock jam and Jean Jacket‘s a wildly moody Electronic/Trance-Dance tune.
Last but not least, we’ve got those videos you’ve been hankering for. Watch the ENTIRE new Glitch Mob album — yes, the whole thing, because every single track has a corresponding cymatic video on YouTube to go along with it. Then dance with Sam Roberts Band down New York streets with real-life shapeshifters. And finally, round out your freeloading with Jessica Hernandez & the Deltas’ Dance-Rock hotel room witchiness. This lady rocks.
That’s a wrap for your weekly freebies. Now get out there, and have some fun this weekend!
