Freeloader Friday: The Melvins, The Virgins, Way Yes, Julian Lynch and The Story So Far

Melvins - Everybody Loves SausagesHappy Friday everyone! I don’t know about you, but this one seems particular welcome. It’s the first Friday of Spring, the sun is shining (at least in New York!), SXSW fever is over and it’s time to relax.

To help, we’ve got free tunes for you as usual, starting with an awesome cover of Queen’s “You’re My Best Friend” by The Melvins in anticipation of their upcoming album, chock full of even more awesome covers. Next, get reacquainted with The Virgins through the full album stream of their just released gem. Way Yes and Julian Lynch preview tracks from their albums too, and to close out, immerse yourself in The Waiting Room with The Story So Far — it’s a sesh you don’t want to miss.

Happy Spring (or Autumn if you’re in the lower hemisphere)!

March 7, 2013 Artist News 5 Comments

DMWT13 SXSW music samplerAh SXSW, simultaneously one of the most fun and exhausting weeks of the year for those lucky enough to attend. A whirlwind series of day parties, happy hours, panels, meetings, official showcases, “meetings” at the finest BBQ and taco joints, after parties, after after parties, and near constant sleep depravation.

Freeloader Friday: Young Man, The Virgins, Pretty & Nice, PVT, The Story So Far, Blank Realm, Gensu Dean & Planet Asia, and Local Natives

February 8, 2013 Freeloader Friday No Comments

Young Man: Beyond Was All Around MeBoy, are we excited this week — we have LOADS of FreeLOADer Friday tunes for you. I’d recommend going easy on this one, really savoring each track.

Eh, who am I kidding!? Gorge away! Feast! Enjoy! It’s Friday, and if you’re on the NorthEast Coast of the U.S., what else are you going to do while you’re snowed in all weekend?

Let’s begin with the return of Young Man, a.k.a. Colin Caulfield, unleashing the third part of his LP trilogy in a couple of months. This new track will give you something to look forward to… Next we’ve got the perfect recipe for a potentially snowed in weekend with The Virgins‘ “Flashbacks, Memories and Dreams,” and an exclusive video premiere for Pretty & Nice (be warned: there’s some skin!), who just released a Deluxe Version of their EP Us You All We.

PVT released the last track of their upcoming album on ISO50, and you can look back at the rest of the album’s track premieres by scavenging their website, preferably to the tune of The Story So Far, who has a YouTube single that’ll pump you up no matter what mood you’re in. Closing our Freeloader Friday today are Blank Realm, Gensu Dean & Planet Asia, and a live stream of Local Natives‘ performing “Heavy Feet” at Music Hall of Williamsburg last week.

Oh and obviously we can’t forget about Valentine’s Day (it’s sneaking up on us!), so we’ve got music for any relationship status ready for you on Spotify.

Stay safe, and have a great weekend!
