Friday = Freeloader Friday. And we don’t want to disappoint. So prepare for your long weekend with these streams, downloads and videos, and hopefully find some new favorite sounds for your 2014.
Kicking off our list this week is a full stream of Sludge/Doom band Indian‘s upcoming album. Once you’re primed, move onto Post-Hardcore band Big Ups, whose recent debut was named Stereogum Album of the Week and is playing in full on the site.
Moving on to one of TIME’s 14 Acts to Watch in 2014, Drowners‘ new track “A Button On Your Blouse” is now streaming on SPIN, so go see what everyone’s so pumped about. Speaking of watching, Lizzo‘s new single “Paris” is going to be featured on HBO’s Girls this weekend, and it’s also premiering on SPIN this week.
There’s more, obviously. Discover a new Frenchkiss Records Punk band from Cincinnati, Tweens, then check out We Were Promised Jetpacks‘ first new song since 2011. Hit the mood lights with Keys N Krates, and snag a free download from The Tower Of Light courtesy of Rolling Stone. Understand what we mean by “delicious music” with Warm Soda (no, it has nothing to do with the name), and get a load of Art Decade with a stream AND video for one of the tracks they performed at our Stairwell Series last week. Don’t miss the Synth-Punk remix of Sam Roberts Band‘s “We’re All In This Together,” and close on two music videos from the always-great RJD2 and another Stairwell Series recent visitor, Leif Vollebekk.
