Freeloader Friday: The Melvins, Beacon, Hey Sholay, Javelin, Andrew Cedermark, The Casket Girls, Coultrain, Young Galaxy and Thee Oh Sees

The Melvins Everybody Loves SausageThe weekend is upon us once again, and you know what that means… tons of free tunes from us to you. That’s right, Freeloader Friday is back to provide all you weekend warriors with loads of new music that is sure to make you start saying TGIFF — Thank Goodness It’s Freeloader Friday!

If you’re in the mood for exclusive content, then you’re in luck, as Javelin dropped a previously unreleased song this past week that oozes maracas (pair some guacamole with this track and you’ll have yourself quite the fiesta). But that’s not all, both Hey Sholay and Andrew Cedermark have new tunes for your listening pleasure as well. Yes, this weekend is going to be one awesome aural experience.

The visuals are on lock for you this weekend too, as Young Galaxy appreciate senior citizens and dance it out with their new video, while Thee Oh Sees get lethal. (We’re not joking, viewer discretion is advised for the San Fran rockers’ new vid!)

Oh, you want more? Well, we have four, count ‘em, FOUR full album streams for you this weekend. To start off, The Melvins premiere a cover record of classic artists ranging from Venom to Queen. Make sure to head over to Spin to read frontman Buzz Osborne’s commentary on each track. In addition, Beacon usher in the ambient pop vibes and Coultrain bring the funky, soul train sounds with their respective album streams.

Finally, The Casket Girls are streaming their eponymous record over on FILTER. If you’re unfamiliar with this group, they consist of Elsa and Phaedra Greene and Ryan Graveface of Black Moth Super Rainbow, who recently released their new record Cobra Juicy a few months ago. If you missed it, they also promoted the album with one pretty cool Kickstarter campaign. Let’s just say, masks were involved.

Whew, that’s a lot of tunes. Happy listening!

Local Natives "Breakers"Aaaand, we’re back! To make up for eating lots of great food last week (or hearing about it), we’ve put together a collection of awesome music and visuals to go with it.

That’s right — you’ll notice we’ve got a slew of music videos for you, and they’re all exceptional and unique in their own way. First, we start with Local Natives‘ “Breakers.” You already caught a preview of the track in a previous Freeloader Friday, and now you get the full visual experience. Travis Barker and Yelawolf, Matthew E. White and Sophie Auster are also on board the music video train with some fresh content from their newly released albums. All that makes this single stream from Apollo Brown and Guilty Simpson a special treat to be savored, a break from the explosion between your eyes and your brain that you can enjoy with your lids closed or in the dark… that is, if you haven’t already turned out the lights after Menahan Street Band‘s “Lights Out” or Hey Sholay‘s “Dreamboat…”

Looking Back at The Great Escape: Rad Gigs, Insightful Panels and Impromptu Street-Dancing

the crookes, the great escape, brightonThe Great Escape, the UK’s own version of SXSW, is growing in prominence across the industry, with bands and delegates coming from far and wide to showcase their work in the lovely seaside town of Brighton.

This year, we hosted a showcase at the event for the first time ever and it was a huge success. A queue started forming at 11:30am and the venue — The Hope — was full to capacity by the time The Crookes (pictured) took the stage at 12:15 in the afternoon. Defying their early stage time, the Sheffield rockers produced hit after hit.

People came and went, but the venue remained packed to the rafters throughout the afternoon, with The Big Sleep shredding their way through a noisy set featuring tracks from their recent album, Nature Experiments.

Hey Sholay, a personal favourite, then produced one of the performances of the weekend — with a short but intense set featuring DiS-lauded singles “Wishbone” and “The Bears, The Clocks, The Bees” as well as their upcoming hit, “Burning.”

Headlining the stage, Hollie Cook Soundsystem, featuring the lady herself, Prince Fatty and Horseman changed the rhythm and delighted the crowd with their own unique brand of dub.

As for the rest of the festival, we had a whole plethora of acts represented, from the loud, loud Hawk Eyes to psychedelic rockers Weird Dreams and one of our festival highlights, Devin. The Brooklyn rocker is everything a frontman should be.

Now, for your “Best Of” run down of The Great Escape…
