CMJ week is wrapping up here in New York – was it everything you’d hoped for & more? It has been for us! We had some very rad live performances in the office (PROM, Radclyffe Hall, and The Bright Light Social Hour) plus an in-house happy hour – CMJ has done our office well. To keep in line with the marathon week of music, let’s check out who made it onto this week’s Freeloader Friday.
So, since it is a music marathon, why not pack in as many full album streams as possible?! We’ve got FOUR. There’s Obituary’s Heavy Metal Screamage for the initial shake-up, High Hazels’ English Indie-Pop that’ll have you reminiscing of summer, Forever Came Calling’s catchy riffs of Pop-Punk, and Army of the Pharaohs round it out for some good, clean (yeah, right) raunchy Hip-Hop. Whew! That’s a lotta album stream time.
Since I gave you so many albums to try, let’s keep tracks to a minimum. Sample John Southworth’s latest – a soothing, mysterious melody of Folk Rock that falls in line with a Dylan-esque genre. Then go for a total 180 with The Skull’s doom & gloom of Heavy Rock.
Moving right along, whet your Halloween whistle with Sweet Apple’s Salem Witch-themed video, explore what Los Angeles Police Department did last summer, and watch Elliott BROOD woo and wow their audience from the stage.
Have a fantastic weekend and be sure to hit up every show you can if you’re enjoying CMJ in New York!
