Freeloader Friday: Youth Code, PROM, Iron Reagan & More

September 19, 2014 Freeloader Friday No Comments

888831653745It’s that most anticipated time of the week: Freeloader Friday! And the end of another work week, of course. Today, we’ve got tons of great premieres from all different genres, so let’s get started.

Three full album streams are first on the list. There’s Youth Code’s House Metal and Punk Electronica album, kind of like a dance party DJ’d by The Joker; Whirr’s Shoegaze Punk that ends up being more introspective than you might expect; lastly, Myrkur’s Hardcore Metal that’s interrupted every so often by angel choruses. If you’re sensing a common thread amongst these album streams, you’d be onto something.

Now, lemme take you track by track. Have a listen first to Dream-Pop duo PROM, newly signed to Ghost Beach’s Crazy Heart Records. So yes, expect great things. Next, check out Allo Darlin’s latest, most adorable Indie Folk-Pop jangle. Then, to really shake things up, catch Obituary’s 2-minute thrasher, appropriately labeled by Metalsucks as “a pleasant, upbeat little ditty.” AKA, utterly brutal Metal. Lastly, there’s Raul Midon’s collab with Dianne Reeves, a solid Acoustic Jazz jam to put your mind at ease.

Finally, splurge with some visual stimulation by way of music vids: roam the streets with The Raveonettes and some heartbroken assassins, cruise an abandoned beach in a B&W memory from Amp Live, and watch Iron Reagan take over the world (well, OK – more like the streets) in one of the greatest music videos ever made.

And that. Is. All. Have a splendid last technically summer weekend!

The Orchard Chart Toppers: August 2014

September 12, 2014 Featured News, Orchard News No Comments

The Orchard Chart Toppers

As we bid farewell to the summer months, we also bid congrats to some great acts who made themselves known on the charts this past month. Highlights include the hot new band Jessica Hernandez & The Deltas. This brand new act has shown tremendous organic growth, seducing fans at every turn, and landed some impressive spots on the charts with their debut Secret Evil. Join the bandwagon, guys. Spanish brother Gemeliers took their local charts by storm as well, and label Vidisco released such awesome compilations, that together with other big local artists, they pretty much monopolized half of the Portugal official charts. Way to go!

August also saw the release of our very first theatrical film, Rich Hill. We all went to see the premiere as an exciting summer outing, and the film clearly hit home around the world. It’s a must-see — bring some tissues.

PS. This is only a snapshot of our artists’ chart positions. They’ve also placed in many genre charts on both Billboard and iTunes, but we’ve zoned in on the more general charts for the purpose of this post.

The Orchard Chart Toppers: July 2014

The Orchard Chart Toppers

July brought us much excitement on the charts, and we’re happy to be able to share the love and pride with you here. First, we’re stoked at how long we managed to take over the iTunes Brazil Singles chart, claiming up to 15/20 spots including the full Top 10 with local band and “SuperStar” reality TV show winner, Malta. Deathcore Metal champs Suicide Silence absolutely killed it — erm, no pun intended — debuting at #16 on the Billboard Top 200 and staying put there and on the Independent and Current Albums charts for three straight weeks. Country/Hip-Hop Georgia man Colt Ford also took impressive hold of the charts; The Raveonettes’ surprise album Pe’ahi got a warm welcome both in the U.S. and their native market, Denmark; and we even scored a #1 Jazz hit with Smooth Jazz trumpet player, Rick Braun.

On the film front, Brandon Semenuk’s Rad Company didn’t go anywhere since last month, and is still claiming its spot on Documentary and Sports Films charts around the world. Other notable mentions include Zero to 100: The Lakey Peterson Story, an action sports doc on female surfing sensation Lakey Peterson, and Shock Till You Drop horror flick, Ghostlight.

PS. This is only a snapshot of our artists’ chart positions. They’ve also placed in many genre charts on both Billboard and iTunes, but we’ve zoned in on the more general charts for the purpose of this post.

Freeloader Friday: Columns, Baked, HOMESHAKE, The American Scene, Pretty & Nice, Iron Reagan, French Style Furs, The Raveonettes & Apollo Brown

Columns - Please ExplodeHappy August, Freeloaders! Today you have two things to celebrate – the end of the work week and the beginning of a new month. Obviously, two cheers are in order for that one. And to help you get started with your celebrations, we’ve got your weekly list of music greats that you need to have a listen to – here we go!

Starting you off with a full album stream is Columns. This is one of those not-to-be-reckoned-with-ever albums: it’s ferocious, loud as hell, and slams you in the face second after second with its Hardcore Metal scream theme. And the album review that goes along with it? Hands down, one of the best, most enthusiastic rally cries I’ve read to date.

Onwards and upwards with track premieres! If you haven’t heard of Brooklyn’s Baked, you’re missing out. So, quick! Hear their latest psychedelic Rock groove, exactly what you’d expect given the name. On a similar note, HOMESHAKE (Peter Sagar from Mac DeMarco) has a whirry, warped and blotchy new single that gets your headspace all blurry, in a very, very good jam way. There’s also The American Scene’s Punk-Pop track that’ll have you mindlessly tapping out the beat and Pretty & Nice clapping out an equally as tantalizing Indie Rock rhythm.

Last but not least, the visuals. The name pretty much gives it away in Iron Reagan’s music video for “Bloody Gore.” Yep, it’s as raunchy visually as you’d think with a Metal Punk tune to really set the mood. French Style Furs take you to an underground 90s rave (note the dance moves + wind breaker fashion), The Raveonettes go from sex on the beach to down-right, hardcore murder on the beach in their totally NSFW video, and Apollo Brown hits the not-so-popular streets of New York with help from Roc Marciano.

And that’s a wrap for this week. Get out there and enjoy your Friday, Saturday, and Sunday Fundays!

Freeloader Friday: Four Year Strong, The Raveonettes, Naomi Shelton & The Gospel Queens, Big Freedia, The Black Angels, & Suicide Silence

Four Year Strong: Go Down In HistoryWe’ve made it to another Friday, folks. Whether the week dragged on or flew by, it always feels good to reach the weekend, amiright?! Let’s kick this weekend off with the latest and greatest in albums, videos, and more!

Start strong with the latest album from Four Year Strong. It’s Punk at its finest – full of riffs and laced with breakdowns. Next up, the surprise release from The Raveonettes will not disappoint. It’s been considered akin to “surfing in the rain,” and if that’s not a magical sonic dream, I don’t know what is. Then, go back to ’60s Soul with Naomi Shelton & The Gospel Queens as she sings and swings over tracks that will make you want to get up and dance.

Get ready to be distracted for hours with the extremely addicting new Soundboard from Big Freedia. Listen to the Queen’s most iconic phrases on command and on repeat!

Finish off with some new videos to round out your week. The Black Angels take concert footage to a psychedelic level, while Suicide Silence has a stare-down complete with hair-flipping, guitar-thrashing, and some unexpected guests in the form of snakes and spiders.

That does it for this week. Pat yourself on the back for successfully reaching another Friday, and enjoy the weekend, Freeloaders!
