Freeloader Friday: Duologue, Burial, Anthony Green, Jamall Bufford, Lightouts, HTRK, Night Panther, Max Cooper, Friend Roulette, Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings, Carcass and Red Fang
Today is a very special Friday. Not only is our whole company gathered in New York for our yearly international get-together, but it’s also the day of our Holiday Party! Our Holiday Party is, in my un-biased opinion, the event of the year. Ok, ok, I’ll add “at The Orchard.” But that might be selling it a little short. I’ll let you find out for yourselves when we post photos and videos of the amazing things that go down. So in honor of this exciting Friday the 13th, I hereby present you with yet another fantastic selection of music to power your cold, cold weekend.
Kicking it off is one of my favorite bands I’ve seen perform live: Duologue. They’re offering their latest album in full on Noisetrade, where you can also choose to leave a donation. That’s always nice. Next up is a full stream of the album Pitchfork just named Best New Music AND Best New Track for “Come Down to Us” by Burial, followed by a live Daytrotter session from Anthony Green.
Some great track premieres follow with Jamall Bufford, who has just released his first album in three years; Lightouts, a new Rock quartet from Brooklyn; and Australian Electronic duo HTRK. Then Philadelphia-based band Night Panther offers a free download of a track that’ll remind you of all the best things Freddy Mercury, 80s Pop and late 70s Disco; talented Brit Max Cooper shares the lead single off of his upcoming album; and Friend Roulette also releases the first track from their follow up to this years’s I’m Sorry You Hit Your Head. All these offer a great variety of music, and I’ve been jammin’ to them happily as I write this post.
We close with three exceptional music videos from three top-class artists: Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings give us another amazing animated video with “Ain’t No Chimneys In The Projects;” Carcass give us Friday-the-13th-appropriate chills with “Unfit For Human Consumption;” and Red Fang live up to their history of hilarious and entertaining music videos with “Blood Like Cream,” featuring a guest appearance by SNL’s Fred Armisen. It’ll make you want to play this beer chugging game again, trust me.
Happy Freaky Friday everyone!
