Freeloader Friday: Thee Oh Sees, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah (Ft. Matt Berninger), Honeyblood, Kina Grannis, Nothing & Sebastian Bach

Thee Oh Sees - DropIt’s that time again! The weekend has arrived. And with it, quite an array of music out there to get you going on your 2-day hiatus. So, as always, we’ve compiled our own little list of ditties for you to enjoy.

First up, Thee Oh Sees‘ latest track off their upcoming album. This one’s a flurried frenzy of guitar riff delights with plenty of nods to power-Punk Rock. Following suit, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah’s latest tune comes parading out the doors with a riveting bass and those alluring, wiry vocals from Ounsworth paired alongside the dark drawl of Matt Berninger’s (The National) voice. The cherry on top of this guitar-themed track sesh? Glasgow gals Honeyblood have a lush twee-Rock track that plants a seed of 60’s Go-Go girls in the mind — maybe it has a little something to do with that “Go, go, go on” line? Regardless, these are some pure Rock babes.

Freeloader Fridays wouldn’t be complete without a few pleasing-to-the-eye music vids, so let’s see what we’ve got this week. There’s Kina Grannis’s totally charming lyric video that includes quite a cast of YouTube characters. Then, Nothing’s kind of hilarious video of them rocking out ultra hardcore to a completely phased-out audience that eventually riots with tomato-throwing. And, finally, Sebastian Bach really turns up the heat with scantily-clad seduction to drive the “Temptation” theme home.

So there’s the short, sweet and varied playlist for all you Freeloaders this week. Enjoy the weekend, and see you back here on Monday!

Freeloader Friday: Tony Molina, Kina Grannis, The Black Angels, Triptides, Thee Oh Sees, Winger & Epica

Tony Molina - Dissed And DismissedNot only is it Friday, but it’s the second day of spring, which is kind of a huge deal for those of us situated in the northeastern US. It’s been a rough one, guys, but looks like Old Man Winter is finally ready to let loose and make room for spring. So here’s not only to getting your weekend started, but also springtime on the horizon!

We’re kicking things off this Friday with Tony Molina’s fuzzy full-album stream. The short, choppy, garage-rock jams will put you in just the right laid-back groove.  Now, to really go along with this sunshin-y, spring-y tinge of excitement, have a listen to Kina Grannis’s latest track; it’ll have you skipping down the sidewalk in no time. Equally as feel-good is the latest from The Black Angels. But heads-up! This gem of a psychedelic-rock track will only be available on their upcoming vinyl EP, set for Record Store Day release. Speaking of psych-rock, the newest Triptides tune is a perfect tripped-out haze of a melody to add to your weekend playlist.

On to the world of visually enticing music videos. Thee Oh Sees’s newest ditty is precisely that — a cut-out cartoon video of an astronaut falling to a tie-dye clad sort of earth. But if you’re in the mood for a hardcore, hardrock 80s throwback, Winger has a perfect example. And if that’s not enough hardcore for you, just jump on over to Epica’s latest lyric video release.

Whether you’re planning on late-nighting it tonight, brunching it up tomorrow or having your first BBQ sesh of the year, get outside and enjoy this long-awaited springtime goodness. Happy Friday, Freeloaders!

Freeloader Friday: Nothing, Lushes, The Unsemble, My Morning Jacket, Missing Persons’ Dale Bozzio, Ringworm, Kina Grannis, Sun Glitters & Magnolia Memoir

February 28, 2014 Freeloader Friday No Comments

Nothing - Guilty of Everything AlbumWe’ve reached the end of another week, and the end of a brutally cold month — here’s to hoping March will bring us some warmer days. Looking on the bright side, though, we’ve got a slew of new tunes for you on this happy Friday.

You might still be recovering from a big night out, or maybe you never even left the office. Either way, listening to Nothing’s album in full will definitely help you nurse your early weekend wounds with their Hardcore/not-so-Hardcore Shoegazey sound. Lushes, on the other hand, will ease you out of zombie-mode and get you into your last-stretch end-of-week work-mode with their frenzied Rock noise, coming at you from their debut album. Get your final motivation boost with The Unsemble, whose album is so full of chaotic, experimental and flurried Rock instrumentals, you might have to take a breather every now and then.

Now for some track premieres: My Morning Jacket’s “Farewell Transmission” cover (a beautiful tribute to the late Jason Molina) has a fantastic underlying tribal beat to go along with the anthemic Rock. I Am The Avalanche have a new head-bopper of a Punk-Rock track that’ll more than likely get you a little buzzed. Meanwhile, Dale Bozzio (of Missing Persons) is back with a Pop-Rock ballad of bounciness, and Metalcore vets Ringworm have a furiously charged track that’ll be sure to wake you up from your post-lunch food coma. But careful, because Au Revoir Simone‘s Glam-Pop Trance tune might just send you right back into a daydream state.

To get your mind ready for your 2-day vacay, how about some music videos to get you to the finish line? Lovely lady Kina Grannis premieres a glorious and melodic lyric video; Sun Glitters provide a free-falling, ambient track that might make you feel like you’re in Middle Earth; and last, but absolutely, positively not least, newcomers Magnolia Memoir roll out quite the star-studded video (it’s like ‘Where’s Waldo’ for celebs).

So, Freeloaders, stop your complaining about this bitter cold. Get to enjoying these freebies, and have a fun-filled weekend while you’re at it!

Rediscover the Elements with Kina Grannis

Kina-Grannis-ElementsKina Grannis is primed to take over the Pop world once again with the announcement of her sophomore album, Elements, out May 6 on Kina Grannis Records/One Haven Music. With the help of Aqualung’s Matt Hales, who recorded and produced the album, Elements showcases a decidedly more mature sound, with layered vocals and harmonies and lush, intricate soundscapes.

Born and raised in Mission Viejo, California, Kina has always been a natural performer. After blowing up from winning the Doritos’ Crash the Superbowl contest, she instantly became a YouTube sensation and Pop star with hundreds of thousands of dedicated fans and followers (currently over 825,000 YouTube subscribers and rapidly growing). Kina’s debut album, Stairwells made a number of Billboard chart entries, peaking at #2 on the Heatseekers chart. Her album campaign was in part fueled by her clever and unique music videos, like those for “Valentine” and “In Your Arms,” the latter of which earned her appearances on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and Jimmy Kimmel LiveKina also supported Stairwells with a worldwide tour, growing her fan base while making sure to stay true to those that got her there.

Kina plans on supporting the release with a few intimate shows before embarking on a full U.S. tour in the fall. Check out her album trailer below, featuring the track “My Dear,” and be on the lookout for the first single, “The Fire,” released today.

August 30, 2013 Freeloader Friday No Comments

red fang whales and leechesIt’s the last Summer Friday of the year, and though Labor Day is around the corner to make us feel a little better, it’s going to take a bit more than that. Enter this week’s selection of free music.

Kicking it off is a new track from Red Fang‘s upcoming album, of which you can enjoy the intricate and amazing artwork in this post, just to your left. Next and just as appropriate is a demo version of Death Cab for Cutie‘s Transatlanticism classic “Lightness,” which along with demos of the rest of the album’s tracks, will be on Death Cab’s tenth anniversary edition coming out late October. Two words: cannot wait.

More music this week includes Metal from Carcass, Rock from Terry Malts and Electronic from Tim Hecker, all coming out with exciting new albums this Fall. On the visual front, we have not one, not two, not even three, but FOUR music videos to treat your eyes and ears. From whom, you ask? The explosive Scorpion Child, who bring you a neat retro and graphic video for “Polygon of Eyes;” the very indie and very cool TRAAMS, who have their debut album Grin ready for street date mid-September; up-and-comer Temara Melek with a video starring “Pretty Little Liars” stars Keegan Allen and Gregg Sulkin; and closing it up, the irresistible Kina Grannis covers Lorde’s “Royals” with Fresh Big Mouf.

Whewee! I feel better already!
