It’s been a crazy-busy week here! We had a #MusicTech meetup in-house last night, a #RadialLive session yesterday afternoon… and, well… there’s that Star Wars trailer that dropped. That just about takes care of things. But, alas. The weekend hasn’t hit yet, which means we’ve still gotta take a look at our Freeloader Friday list.
So there’s this adorable couple AKA OOFJ that’ve teamed up to make some… music, among other things. You’ll have to read the actual article to figure out how they met — it’s super adorable (albeit in a twisted, Lars Von Triers) kind of way. They’re out with their second release which, judging by how they met, makes perfect sense. It’s glaringly brutal Dark Wave Electronica, so prepare yourselves. The album may take you down a very thought-provoking, introverted road.
In track premieres, be sure to catch Miniboone‘s riotous 90s Fuzz Pop that’s got a very chilled-out, almost melancholic (but in a good way) vibe. On a completely different musical note, everyone’s all-time favorite Doom-Thrash Metal band Slayer is back for the first time since 2009 with a truly gruesome track. Get excited.
In video news, Mt. Wolf (stay on top of these dudes — they’ve truly got something here) premiered a gloriously beautiful story for their “Hamburg” track. Perhaps a metaphor alongside actual events of a relationship gone astray? You be the judge.
