Freeloader Friday: Blackburner, Ted Nugent, Laurel, Kid Astray, Mortals, Lusine, Chicago, Cowbell, & Incan Abraham
With the World Cup in full swing, it’s time to take a break from watching the latest match and instead rock out to some music. Lucky for you, we’ve got the perfect set of tunes to fill the weekend.
There are a record six new tracks for you this week! Get your Trap on with the latest from Blackburner, an innovative EDM banger featuring Yellowman. Then, Ted Nugent will have you Rockin’ and Rollin’ along to the newest song from his upcoming album. This inspirational track encourages listeners to “never stop dreaming” while electric guitars jam in the background. Chill out with a dreamy track from Laurel that evokes somber sentiments over Electronic-meets-Folk instrumentation. Kid Astray takes “summer jam” to a whole new meaning with the M83 and Pet Shop Boys influenced title track from their upcoming EP. This is Indie Synth-Pop at its finest. Next, go dark with the surprise-filled “thrashed boogie” from Black Metal band Mortals. Finally, listen to Lusine “find beauty in strange places” via subtle beats and pulsing synths.
Now, enjoy an eclectic mix of music videos! First, go old-school with the Brass-fueled Rock of the new (but quintessentially) Chicago track that backs their homemade-style music video. Then, take a journey to the Spanish desert with Soul-Rock duo Cowbell in the video for the latest track from their upcoming album. Lastly, time travel to another era in the video for Incan Abraham’s luscious, percussive Synth-Pop track.
And that’s a wrap, Freeloaders. Enjoy your weekend!
