How ’bout them Patriots! (Or not…) We’re really getting into the thick of winter. Which (as brutal as it is for some) means we’re even closer to SXSW! 5 weeks and counting… who’re we gonna see there? But let’s not get too ahead of ourselves; we’ve got a Freeloader Friday list to get to first!
Vision Fortune get the party started with their oh-so-lovely crushing House album, appropriately titled, “Country Music.” Gotta love a sense of humor. The sound is lackadaisically warped synth mixed with Drum-n-Bass. These guys know how to get started on a Friday night.
Next up, a plethora of track nuggets! Cody Simpson‘s (think Jack Johnson in Aussie, blonde form, who pals around with Miley Cyrus from time to time) newbie is beachy, breezy Singer-Songwriter goodness. Good ol’ boys The Bright Light Social Hour wind back the clock with their new track, transporting you to the golden age of Psychedelic Rock. The Black Ryder take you down a Shoegaze, melodramatic rabbit hole, while Karl Kling sets the stage for an all-out Disco-Pop dance. Ruby the Hatchet go hard with a fuzzy Rock ‘n Roll sound, Rapper Big Pooh & Apollo Brown team up to create powerful, lyric-heavy Hip-Hop, and Dalton paints a whirlwind dream through melodic guitar strings. Doesn’t get much more varied than that!
Also be sure to check out the latest in music videos, featuring Rock Supergroup Revolution Saints rockin’ out like it’s ’79 and Whitehorse harmonizing their Folk Rock around a campfire.
You’re all set for the weekend, folks. Here’s to having a fab Friday!
