As we all look forward to our weekend plans leading up to St. Paddy’s Day, there are a couple of things we should take note that happened this week. Robin Thicke and Pharrell Williams’s track “Blurred Lines” lost their case for copyright infringement of Marvin Gaye’s “Got to Give It Up.” On a more positive note, Will Ferrell plays Major League Baseball suiting up for 10 different teams to support the fight against cancer. Now presenting this week’s Freeloader Friday:
The Montreal based singer-songwriter, Michael Feuerstack, graces us with his beautiful, thought-provoking songs from his full album that will give you an unforgettable experience listening to it. This collection of songs has been evolving over the years and the artist proves to be a staple in the Canadian music scene.
There are quite a few new tracks to look into this week, 5 to be exact! We first start off with this feel-good, upbeat Lyrics Born track that will leave you clapping your hands and stomping your feet. Then comes a track that shows off the love from Oddisee, followed by Holiday Mountain’s track that will slow you down and lift you up from the ground. This psych dance trio has great influences from Of Montreal and St. Vincent. Next, we present Mt. Wolf’s dreamy blend of Folk, Indie and Electronic, and finally, an emotionally triumphant track from Soft Cat.
Enjoy these great music video selections starting with the Synth Pop/Electro group White Prism, followed by performance right here in the office! We’ll bring you down from space with this haunting, mystical video by The Black Ryder. Bring yourself back up with this vibrant Pop video from Pree. We’ll finish this week off rocking with rock legends, Whitesnake.
To wrap it all up, here’s a St. Patrick’s Day toast for you all:
Heres to a long life and a merry one.
A quick death and an easy one
A pretty girl (or handsome man) and an honest one
A cold beer and another one!
Have a great and safe weekend!
