Freeloader Friday: Souls of Mischief, Code Orange, Melvins, Diamond District, Whirr, We Were Promised Jetpacks, Obituary & Catey Shaw

August 29, 2014 Freeloader Friday No Comments

856040005013It’s about that time again. It’s been a most marvelous summer, but it’s drawing to an end, slowly but surely. Not to say that all the Saturday college football games and Sunday Night madness won’t make for an excellent Fall! But we will miss our beach days and BBQ’s. So, here’s to one last summer Friday!

To start us off, we’ve got the very epic Souls of Mischief guys telling a story with their sixth album, filled to the brim with quite the cast of characters: Ali Shaheed Muhammed (A Tribe Called Quest), Busta Rhymes, Snoop Dogg, William Hart (The Delfonics), and Scarub (Living Legends). It is, quite effortlessly, a stupendous hip-hop dialogue. After that, switch over to the likes of Code Orange for a Metal-heavy album sound.

For track streams, hear the Melvins team up with two Butthole Surfers for an initially Rocked-out screamer that turns into a Psych jam, Diamond District’s groovy Boom Bap synth grind, Whirr’s ultimate Shoegazer mantra, the mesmerizing Indie-Punk sound from We Were Promised Jetpacks’ rallying cry, and Obituary’s nasty, gnarly growl.

To round things out on this fabulous three-day weekend, play the most feel-good, dance-happy tune you’ve probably heard all summer. That’d be Catey Shaw’s latest single, along with a stellar backdrop of brightly-colored fruits, florals, and flamingos in her music video.

Whatever you may have planned for this Labor Day weekend, enjoy these final few days of summer, and get ready for an awesome Fall!

September 20, 2013 Freeloader Friday No Comments

aurevoirsimone_moveinspectrumsSeptember is always an exciting month in the music world. Yes, we’re also dealing with our summer withdrawals, but it helps when a slew of really great releases are there to pick you up when you’re missing those few extra degrees or Sunday beach days.

This week’s Freeloader Friday is full of such great releases! Kicking it off is a full album stream of the album BuzzFeed listed as #6 on its pick of “Albums To Get Excited About This Fall:” Au Revoir Simone‘s Move In Spectrums. Fort Romeau is also streaming the full album they released last week for another few days, so take the opportunity to preview it while you can.

RJD2 is back with another preview from his upcoming album, which you can enjoy while reading his exclusive interview with Esquire. Warning: it might make you want a fig. Yep, a fig. I’m going to go look for one as soon as I’m done writing this post. And then while I eat it, I’m going to play around with this awesome virtual MPC on RJ’s website. Anthony Green also has a ton of cool stuff going on in anticipation of his adorably titled Young Legs. Start by listening to the first track off the album, “Breaker,” then take a look at his website to see if you’re interested in purchasing some hand-painted LPs or handwritten lyrics. Or perhaps a one-hour private Skype show is more up your alley, hmm?

Other great music available today are track premieres from Red Fang and the Melvins, who are out with yet another new album this November, and free downloads from Black Hearted Brother and UK band The First.

To treat your eyes and ears, we’ve got four music videos worth watching by Irish band Bell X1 (one of my personal faves), Scott Dermody a.k.a. Scott & Charlene’s Wedding, Har Mar Superstar from Julian Casablancas’ label Cult Records, and Electronic beasts BOT & TAI.

Off I go to get my fig. Enjoy!

Melvins Premiere New Track From The Bride Screamed Murder on AOL Noisecreep

May 25, 2010 Artist News No Comments

Seattle sludge masters Melvins are gearing up for the release of their TWENTIETH album, The Bride Screamed Murder, this June, and yesterday the band premiered the massive first track from it on AOL Noisecreep. Like all Melvins album openers, “The Water Glass” doesn’t hold anything back, hitting like a sucker punch with serious riffage and heavy drums that rock your face. The surprise comes close to the 2-minute mark, with a military marching cadence that is so utterly Melvins that you wonder why they’ve never done this kind of thing before. Check it out below.

Melvins’ Nude With Boots

July 8, 2008 Artist News No Comments

The Melvins
Nude With Boots / Ipecac / BUY

Know who needs no intro? A band that’s been in biz for about 25 years, with just shy of 20(!) records under their belt. So, no, we won’t go into detail about how King Buzzo and his mighty Melvins all but created Grunge. Or how they distilled the ever-loving piss out of sludge and made it cool to sound down, dirty, and slower than slow. Or how they influenced anyandeverything you might call “heavy” nowadays. Instead, we’ll just breathlessly praise the knock-down, drag-out intensity of the band’s latest full-length, Nude With Boots. Picking up where 2006’s (A) Senile Animal left off, Boots throws its weight around with the best of them, whipping back and forth from raucous riff rock on the album-opening “Kicking Machine” to Spaghetti Western voodoo on “Dies Iraea” to beefy bluesman metal on “A Suicide In Progress.”

Once again featuring the rhythm section of Seattle sludgemiesters Big Business — Jared Warren and Coady Willis, for those keeping score at home — the album builds on the template guitarist Buzz Osbourne and drummer Dale Crover set forth back when Reagan was in the White House: interstate-wide grooves, impossibly-proportioned riffs, and eye-bugging, from-the-gut vocals. But what sets Boots apart is its ability to sound 100% menacing while swinging for the fences with its “pop hooks.” Check the hyperblast Thin Lizzy, or hulked up Cheap Trick vibe on the title track below. But don’t fret if “Nude” is too cheery for your taste, there’s plenty of hellfire and squealing Melvmetal on the album-closing “It Tastes Better Than The Truth.”

Long live the Melvins!
