September 13, 2013 Freeloader Friday No Comments

Carcass_SurgicalSteelWe have so much great music to share with you this Freeloader Friday, we can’t contain our excitement. Four full album streams, four amazing track premieres, and four mind-blowing music videos. Get ready.

Start by getting your Metal on with Carcass, who is finally releasing their latest opus next week. You can preview the whole thing now. Joanna Gruesome‘s full album stream is also a must-listen, and if you don’t believe us, check out what Drowned In Sound and Pitchfork had to say about it. Also available for complete streams are TRAAMS‘ upcoming album and Jessy Lanza‘s latest.

On the single stream front, get a dose of Dublin singer-songwriter Declan O’Rourke, who (shh…) is going to be performing a Stairwell Series for us later this month! Young Galaxy just dished a brand new song from the Deluxe Edition of Ultramarine, which includes new tracks in addition to remixes and B-sides. Teen Daze are back again with a new album this October, and they have the first song, appropriately titled “Listen,” ready for you to… *drum roll*… listen to. And closing this category is music from a band led by one of our very own Orchardites, Young Unknowns. The site on which the track is streaming is also created by a fellow Orchardite, Drew Schorno, and everything about this experience is simply beautiful.

Music videos this week are a treat indeed. Au Revoir Simone created a three-woman tribute to the 1985 Martin Scorsese cult classic After Hours in the video for “Crazy;” AM & Shawn Lee, whose U.S. tour kicks off September 26th, put together an animated space wonder; Oddisee took the name of their new album seriously when making the video for this serene and beautiful instrumental track; and Punk Rockers State Champs took footage from their recently completed Warped Tour performances to make the video that is the perfect closing to this gem-filled Freeloader Friday.

Have a great weekend, y’all!

Freeloader Friday: Heliotropes, Hospital Ships, Slum Village, Duologue, AM & Shawn Lee and Young Galaxy

Heliotropes - A Constant SeaHello all and Happy Friday! The second half of June welcomes a slew of release dates for artists… and we certainly have some treats in store. From Pop to Punk, Underground Rap and more, we have some great material that will satisfy all your musical tastes. If that isn’t enough, our must-see music video of the week is Duologue‘s “Machine Stop.” Be one of the first to check out this awesome 3D video… no special glasses necessary.

So, let’s begin. First, we have a girl group from Brooklyn by the name of Heliotropes. Their group was listed as the top band to see by CMJ this year and you can preview their entire album now. Another group that gives its audience a sonically packed experience is Hospital Ships, and you can get hooked onto the entrancing tone of these Kansas rockers right away by listening to their full album on Pitchfork Advance. Slum Village gives us a change of pace with their underground Rap album Evolution. The 3 artists from Detroit have given us a sampler of the album, which hits stores June 25.

By now, you should already be in love with AM & Shawn Lee‘s La Musique Numérique. This week, we have the music video for “Good Blood,” which fuses Pop, Soul, Funk and World music all into one delectable package. We continue to spoil you with music videos via the Canadian Electro-Pop band Young Galaxy. Their single “New Summer” portrays dark irony between the song and the visuals. See it for yourself below!

Emma Louise 'Vs. Head Vs. Heart'It’s here! It’s here! Our first Summer Friday of the year! Of course it’s humid and rainy, but we’re not going to let that dampen our mood for Freeloader Friday.

So, what do we have in store for you… Let’s see… Emma Louise is taking iTunes by storm this week with the release of her new album vs. Head vs. Heart and a Single of the Week for “Boy” to go with it!

Next, Baths is previewing their full album on Pitchfork Advance, and Mack Avenue Records spoil us with the full album stream of Cécile McLorin Salvant, who’s ready to take the Jazz world by storm, and a 3-track preview of Yellowjackets‘ upcoming album, out in almost exactly a month. The tracks are “Civil War,” “An Informed Decision” and “An Amber Shade of Blue.”

Crocodiles is back with a follow up to last year’s album Endless Flowers and they’re opening the show with the free track download of “Cockroach.” (They like animals and insects equally, it seems.) Veronica Falls‘ “My Heart Beats” was picked as Song of the Day on KEXP, and AM & Shawn Lee and Sally Shapiro both premiered a new track and a remix, respectively, from their latest albums. Beacon closes it out with the music video premiere of “Drive.”

Enjoy the goods, and Happy Memorial Day weekend if you’re in the U.S.!

May 15, 2013 Artist News No Comments

New Dogs, Old Tricks Covers PlaylistAs part of The Orchard’s Creative Licensing team, we’re always on the hunt for interesting covers.

This month, we’ve assembled a playlist of some of of our favorite discoveries from the past year, including Albert Hammond, Jr. of The Strokes taking on the Big Star power-pop classic “Thirteen;” The Dandy Warhols‘ rumbling electronic-tinged rendition of The Cure‘s 1981 single “Primary;” AM & Shawn Lee‘s cosmic electro-soul update of Joe Jackson‘s 1982 hit “Steppin’ Out;” and much more.

Stream the entire playlist via Spotify below, and be sure to check it out on ShareMyPlaylists, too.


Freeloader Friday: Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings, Grim Tower, Say Hi, AM & Shawn Lee, Mark Mulcahy, Way Yes, Children of Bodom, PVT and Local Natives

Sharon Jones, Give The People What They WantWhat a beautiful day! And what colorful album art to accompany it. Now that’s the way to start a weekend. Well, that and this fabulous selection of free music you see below. 

To start, NPR has got the first track to Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings‘ latest album, which can’t come soon enough. The track, “Retreat,” is also available for instant download when you pre-order the album on iTunes, so if you love it, you know what to do.

Next, we have a diverse array of single premieres and free downloads from Grim Tower, Mark Mulcahy, Way Yes and Say Hi, who just released the music to the adorable film Free Samples, starring The Social Network‘s Jesse Eisenberg.

On the music video front, AM & Shawn Lee give us their new video for “Two Times,” PVT remind us how awesome their February release is with the video for the title track, and Children of Bodom make it easy for you to try out your Metal singing chops with their lyric video for “Transference.”

To conclude, we’ve included a very special video of Local Natives performing alongside a troupe of dancers interpreting their song “Bowery.” It’s very unique and quite breathtaking.
