Freeloader Friday: Charles Bradley, Lil Silva, William Onyeabor, RJD2, Com Truise, Rachel Sermanni, Sam Roberts Band, Sun Glitters, Neil Davidge, Fanfarlo, Anthony Green and Tanya Morgan
Missed us last week? Don’t worry, we’re making up for lost time with a slew of great tracks, from exclusive new ones to exciting remixes, and of course a couple of music videos and something a little in between.
Starting off this Freeloader Friday is the soulful Charles Bradley with a new song, featuring The Bullets, that is not on his latest album. If you can get your hands on the now sold-out Record Store Day 7-inch, you’ll find it on the B-side. Then, to keep you on the inspirational train is a track off the upcoming Africa Express album, which brings together Damon Albarn of Blur and some very talented Malian artists.
Next we have two well-crafted remixes perfect for the weekend: Policy’s version of William Onyeabor‘s “Something You’ll Never Forget” and a “dirty souled out” version of RJD2‘s “See You Leave.” Follow that up with the first we’ve heard of Com Truise since 2012, and you’re well in the zone for the rest of this Freeloader Friday and weekend.
To keep you cruisin’, Rachel Sermanni and Sam Roberts Band have just the thing — these guys just never disappoint. Then, Sun Glitters and Neil Davidge step in with some ambient, mind-and-body-soothing tracks that’ll set the perfect tone for a more intimate side to your weekend.
Hope that does the trick! Happy Friday, everyone.
