Freeloader Friday: Four Year Strong, The Raveonettes, Naomi Shelton & The Gospel Queens, Big Freedia, The Black Angels, & Suicide Silence
We’ve made it to another Friday, folks. Whether the week dragged on or flew by, it always feels good to reach the weekend, amiright?! Let’s kick this weekend off with the latest and greatest in albums, videos, and more!
Start strong with the latest album from Four Year Strong. It’s Punk at its finest – full of riffs and laced with breakdowns. Next up, the surprise release from The Raveonettes will not disappoint. It’s been considered akin to “surfing in the rain,” and if that’s not a magical sonic dream, I don’t know what is. Then, go back to ’60s Soul with Naomi Shelton & The Gospel Queens as she sings and swings over tracks that will make you want to get up and dance.
Get ready to be distracted for hours with the extremely addicting new Soundboard from Big Freedia. Listen to the Queen’s most iconic phrases on command and on repeat!
Finish off with some new videos to round out your week. The Black Angels take concert footage to a psychedelic level, while Suicide Silence has a stare-down complete with hair-flipping, guitar-thrashing, and some unexpected guests in the form of snakes and spiders.
That does it for this week. Pat yourself on the back for successfully reaching another Friday, and enjoy the weekend, Freeloaders!
