Freeloader Friday: The Budos Band, Royal Thunder and More

BudosBandBurntOfferingIt’s been a little while since I’ve personally shared Freeloader Friday with you fine folks, and I’m glad to report that the selection I have in store for you today is the perfect soundtrack to your weekend.

Leading with The Budos Band‘s soulful horns and Charlie Cunningham‘s soothing acoustic strings, we continue with four-piece Royal Thunder‘s new single followed by some chilled out instrumentals and soundscapes that’ll have you dreaming the weekend will never end.

If you’re at SXSW, save this one for when you come back and need recovering.

Freeloader Friday: Wovenhand, Mark E, Kina Grannis, Big Freedia, PAWS, Tombs, People Get Ready, TOBACCO, Sebastian Bach & Luke Haines

Wovenhand - Refractory ObdurateWell look what day has finally arrived. As always, it took a bit longer than wished for, but we got through the work and made it out on top, right? I don’t know about y’all, but this weekend’s going to be phenom. And for absolutely no good reason — no big family plans, no holidays, no Record Store Day lines — just a low-key, laid-back 2-day hiatus. And to go along with that, here’s a jam-packed list of this week’s music greats.

For starters, we’ve got Wovenhand’s latest album: think apocalyptic, True Detective madness meets grassroots Punk. Mark E’s also got a full album stream available this week, and man, is it a doozy! I’ll be more than likely be putting this one on as a pre-gamer for Saturday night — machinery beats, heavy analog-use and pure dark-House grit.

On the complete opposite end of the spectrum, Kina Grannis’s latest track bubbles over with effervescence and sun-lit bliss, something for the likes of your lazy Sunday morning. Big Freedia’s jam, which comes boooooming out of nowhere, is to be played at absolutely any time, any day — it is straight up booty-bounce funness. But if you’re looking for more lyric-based content, check out PAWS’ true-to-life clumsy relationship-awry love song. For your rough-around-the-edges Hard Rock fix, sample the latest from Tombs; for complete instrumental, Pop-kitsch gloriousness, ya gotsta play People Get Ready’s new one on repeat.

Our videos this week need a bit of forewarning. Well, only one. But seriously. TOBACCO’s kinky, warped-out & geeked-out music vid is NOT intended for office viewing! (But you should most definitely see it.) Sebastian Bach gives a stellar shout-out to Amanda Bynes, and Luke Haines whips out perhaps the greatest ode to Lou Reed in art form (these last 2 are G-rated, don’t worry).

That’ll do us for this week. Enjoy some down time and let the listening begin!

Freeloader Friday: Sweet Apple, I Divide, The Crookes, Tobacco, Haley Bonar, Dylan Shearer, Thee Oh Sees, Neal Schon, Winger &The Glitch Mob

Sweet Apple - The Golden Age of GlitterAlright, Freeloaders. It’s that much-anticipated time of the week again. And this time, we’ve got loads of different music goodies to dish out to you. So let’s get to listening!

Who doesn’t love a full-album stream? No one, obviously! So you should be psyched to hear that we’ve got three on hand for you. For starters, there’s Sweet Apple’s power-Pop, delightfully charged album that’ll send you daydreaming about old-school Cali Rock. Next, I Divide’s anthemic-Rock backed by riotous and hardcore elements, and The Crookes top us off with their refined Brit-Rock crooning.

Moving on to our track premieres, we’ve got Tobacco revving things up with a heavily industrial dark-synth style, Haley Bonar’s light and lovely vocals atop a catchy, girly-Rock melody and, finally, delicate 60’s vibes from Dylan Shearer, who offers up a gentle, British folk. But we swear he’s from San Fran.

Now to really serve you up this week, we’re showing you four stellar music videos to keep you thoroughly entertained. Check out Thee Oh Sees totally-trippified graphic video (warning: it’ll have you completely hypnotized), Neal Schon’s fiery, Psychedelic jam, a look back at those childhood imaginary battles with Winger and, to put the cherry on the cake, The Glitch Mob finish things up with another one of their brilliant cymatic visuals.

That wraps up the week in musical goodness for us; make sure you find some time to take a listen to these beauties. We’ll see you back next week!

Freeloader Friday: Pyrrhon, Fan Modine, Mark E, The Crookes, I Divide, Wovenhand, Fanfarlo, Sweet Apple & Weekend

12 Jacket (Gatefold - Two Pocket) [GD30OB2-N]Well, Freeloaders, looks like spring’s not quite as ready to make her grand entrance as I’d hoped for last week. Did I jinx us? It certainly feels like it here in our NY office. But it is Friday, and you can find some solace in that.

I know some of you are pretty bummed (maybe outraged is more fitting?) about these first days of spring not living up to expectation. If that’s the case, perhaps a good dose of Pyrrhon’s Deathcore-frenzied Metal album will help ease the pain. If you’re looking for something with a more soothing guitar-Pop vibe, try out Fan Modine’s album stream. It’s a completely different end of the music-genre spectrum, but the Chamber-Pop Rock should be just as good a remedy.

But the goods don’t stop there! You might want to get your power-duty speakers out for these next few: Mark E’s latest Dance-happy trance track or The Crookes’ charming, Smiths-like Rock ‘n’ Roller of a ballad. There’s also I Divide‘s anthemic Punk-Pop, and Wovenhand’s countrified, growling Alt-Rock track — a riotous call to arms that sounds like it comes straight from a scene out of True Detective.

Now to send you off properly, we’ve got a handful of pretty enticing music videos. First up, Fanfarlo’s stop-motion fueled premiere, composed of sci-fi and psychedelic-kitsch paper cut-outs. Next, catch Sweet Apple’s video to watch friendships that span from coast to coast by way of paper airplanes. But the biggest shout-out to warm weather’s approach comes from Weekend. Their Grunge-Goth works surprisingly perfectly against the blue-skied and sunny-hazed beach backdrops.

So have a toast tonight to Friday, and the coming of spring — it’s not too much longer, folks!

Freeloader Friday: I Am the Avalanche, Warm Soda, Wooden Wand, Tying Tiffany, Joel Ford, The Black Angels, Army of the Pharaohs & Dead Gaze

I Am the Avalanche - WolverinesFor those of you not marking off your music schedules at SXSW this weekend, don’t fret — it’s Friday! Albeit not in Austin, but there’s plenty of music to be soaked up without spending the big bucks. Just follow our lead, and we’ll hook ya up with some freebies for your fundays this weekend.

If you’ve had it rough this week, start off with I Am the Avalanche’s full album stream. The gritty, raw rock is totally relatable, especially considering all the hurdles faced in the making of the record. If you’re looking for something a bit more garage-rock groovy, look no further than Warm Soda’s album — part NYC-grunge, part cruising-down-a-southern-Cali-highway.

Speaking of California, the sun is finally coming out and things seem to be getting a little bit warmer here at NY HQ. This spring weather will have you either (a). reminiscing of tire-jumping into that small-town, childhood pond (in which case you should play on repeat Wooden Wand’s steel-guitar laden track) or (b). gearing up for summer dance parties. And if that’s what’s coming to mind, then you should most definitely be tuning into Tying Tiffany’s synth-pop jam or Joel Ford’s futuristic, beat-ridden dance track.

Closing us out on this fine Friday are three awesomely pleasing-to-the-eye music videos: a wild stallion galloping in sync to The Black Angels, Army of the Pharaohs ripping rhymes in your face and Cole Furlow (of Dead Gaze) partyin’ it up with home-grown Mississippi yuppies.

Now that we’ve got you fully covered ‘till Monday, Happy Friday, y’all!
