Freeloader Friday: Red Fang, Death Cab for Cutie, Carcass, Terry Malts, Tim Hecker, Scorpion Child, TRAAMS, Temara Melek and Kina Grannis
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!
