Freeloader Friday: AM & Shawn Lee, Black Star Riders, Young Man, Charles Bradley, PVT, Little Tybee and The Lovely Bad Things
The weekend is here, which means it’s time to turn off your email and turn up your stereo. Whether you’re hitting the road for a quick getaway, hosting an epic dance party, or just looking for an aural escape this weekend, you’ve come to the right place. We have tons of new music that is guaranteed to make your weekday hiatus a truly raucous event.
To start things off, AM & Shawn Lee spin a cosmic cover of a Joe Jackson classic, Black Star Riders share a feel of summer with the premiere of their newest single, and PVT gets turned up a notch with a remix by The Antlers.
What’s that? You want a full album to jam out to this weekend? Well you’re in luck, as Young Man spreads infectious Pop sounds and Little Tybee wanders into the atmosphere with their respective full record streams. Both albums drop next week, so be on the lookout.
If you’re looking for visuals, The Lovely Bad Things have you covered with the music video premiere of “Fried Eyes.” It features fireworks, mini-bike races, and enough party vibes to get your weekend kicked into gear.
But the feel good story of the week comes from Funk maestro Charles Bradley. The cook-turned-James-Brown-impersonator-turned-Soul-singer ignites NPR Music’s All Songs Considered, a weekly podcast hosted by Bob Boilen, with the track “You Put The Flame On It.” The redemptive story of Bradley’s career and his newest single are both bound to lift your weekend spirits.
