Freeloader Friday: BZRK, Crazy Town, The Shrine & More

December 19, 2014 Freeloader Friday No Comments

889176318153Well my very fine Freeloaders, it’s that time of the year again. The Happy Merry Everything time! It’s the season of celebrations, bright lights, spiked eggnog and gifts wrapped in sparkly bows. Which also means another year has come to a close! Before we bid you adieu until the New Year, I’ve got to throw in one last Freeloader Friday. It’s a short list, but it’ll leave you wanting more in 2015. So here goes!

There’s quite the burgeoning underground music scene in Nashville, and not the kind you’d expect from the region. BZRK is a large part of it and they’ve made for themselves a power posse of the “dopest poets.” The Hip-Hop collective pulls from those old-school Rap beats, but adds their own Southern, sultry twist. Not to mention their shout-outs to Gandalf and Karen Carpenter – keep your eyes peeled for more to come from these charming Southern gents.

On to track premieres – bet you didn’t see this one coming! Crazy Town, yep the “Butterfly” dudes, are BACK. And ready to party. With you. The song starts with that familiar, seething pulse you may remember from the 90s. Then it goes into a banger of Electrified Rock, with undertones from that glorified “Hey Song” played at all football games. It’s a new direction for the crew, but sure to be a hit at your Holiday party. Also on the list, there’s a much more subdued Rock track from Evans the Death, perfect for your post-Holiday party doldrums. It’s wallow-y and mellow, but has just enough edge to keep your spirits bright.

And to wrap things up appropriately, I give you the final three music videos of the year. If The Shrine’s latest video goes viral, they will most definitely NOT be getting anything from Santa. It’s the “best video ever” in a wild weed & whisky-induced sort of way. White Prism shows the electric buzz of our beloved New York as she traverses the boroughs, and Johan Agebjörn (you know him from Sally Shapiro) dares you not to get in a playful spirit in his video starring raccoons and cats (I’m still working on it, too).

That does it for the year, folks. Have a wonderful, fun-filled and safe Winter Break. See you in 2015!

Emma Louise 'Vs. Head Vs. Heart'It’s here! It’s here! Our first Summer Friday of the year! Of course it’s humid and rainy, but we’re not going to let that dampen our mood for Freeloader Friday.

So, what do we have in store for you… Let’s see… Emma Louise is taking iTunes by storm this week with the release of her new album vs. Head vs. Heart and a Single of the Week for “Boy” to go with it! If you haven’t checked out this Australian singer-songwriter yet, there’s no better time than the present. You’ll get hooked by her entrancing tone in seconds.

Next, Baths is previewing their full album on Pitchfork Advance, and Mack Avenue Records spoil us with the full album stream of Cécile McLorin Salvant, who’s ready to take the Jazz world by storm, and a 3-track preview of Yellowjackets‘ upcoming album, out in almost exactly a month. The tracks are “Civil War,” “An Informed Decision” and “An Amber Shade of Blue.”

Crocodiles is back with a follow up to last year’s album Endless Flowers and they’re opening the show with the free track download of “Cockroach.” (They like animals and insects equally, it seems.) Veronica Falls‘ “My Heart Beats” was picked as Song of the Day on KEXP, and AM & Shawn Lee and Sally Shapiro both premiered a new track and a remix, respectively, from their latest albums. Beacon closes it out with the music video premiere of “Drive.”

Enjoy the goods, and Happy Memorial Day weekend if you’re in the U.S.!
