Well Freeloaders, there appears to be a chill in the air. And by chill, I mean fall is kicking into very high gear here in NY (seriously?!). It’s time to start your cold-weather prepping. So while you’re busy pulling out sweaters and wool socks, let us do you a favor and provide you with some music samples you need to hear this week.
Get the ball rolling with some heavy-banger album streams. First up, there’s super-group The Skull, who’re out now with their doom & gloom Metal debut. Follow that up with Machine Head’s Hardcore Metal mutiny, which has a very cool interactive playlist to go along with it. Next, stream Lee Bannon’s dark House EP – it’s a little bit trippy Soundtrack, a lot Drum n’ Bass Electronic, but phenom beats through and through. Finally, get Experimental & Instumental with VLHLL and her Darkwave synths.
On to track premieres! Only two this week, but they’re worth their weight in gold. New group Orange Cassettes sees Radio 4’s Anthony Roman and Elefant’s Mod making futuristic Disco Rock. Then blast your speakers for Open Mike Eagle’s super witty Rap groove. This is one to put on repeat – you don’t want to miss his epic wordage.
Moving on to music videos: Lowland Hum replays family-video moments from years past, JAWS take you inside a beautifully-colored love story, and The Black Opera don a sharp black & white color scheme to focus on their philosophical theme.
Now, that should be enough to entertain you while your unpacking last year’s wintry clothes. Enjoy your weekend!
