It’s one of those most wonderful days of the year again! Time to get dressed up, decked out and get your freak on with all the goblins, spooks and vamps running around town. It’s Halloweeeeen! But when you’re not #trickortreating this weekend, you’re going to need a tune fix. So let’s get started with this Halloween’s Freeloader Friday!
Straight off their hot and massive Mercury Prize win, Young Fathers roll out a full album stream of the praiseworthy album. You are definitely going to want to hear every single Rap-Experimental groove. Also, be sure to check out the grand debut from Dems. These dudes (who, alongside Young Fathers, hail from the UK) also have a nice groove goin’ on, but in an Electronic, Indie white-boy kind of way. Both are solid, and should not be missed.
Moving onwards & upwards, you’ve got four track premieres to catch. The Skull (how appropriate!) have rolled out a deep, dark, old-school Rock track; the ever-lovely Kina Grannis covers Sia’s “Chandelier,” as voted on by YOU; tētēma debuts a chant-driven Jazzy Synth tune; and Senser releases a beloved Heavy Rock-Rap classic, matched to Dance Electronic beats by way of DJ Awe.
And then, of course, there are the videos. Go to a top-notch mariachi Rock party with Jessica Hernandez & the Deltas (BYOB of tequila!), get totally freeeeaked out with old-time Hollywood blood, guts & gore from The Budos Band (you’re going to want to play this at your Halloween house party on the big screen), run through rivers and woods in extraordinary fashion with PROM, and learn lessons about “twu luv” from Allo Darlin’s hilarious take on relationships.
That should keep you covered for the weekend. Now get out there and show off our costume! #HappyHalloween2014.
