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