Freeloader Friday: Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings, Grim Tower, Say Hi, AM & Shawn Lee, Mark Mulcahy, Way Yes, Children of Bodom, PVT and Local Natives

Sharon Jones, Give The People What They WantWhat a beautiful day! And what colorful album art to accompany it. Now that’s the way to start a weekend. Well, that and this fabulous selection of free music you see below. 

To start, NPR has got the first track to Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings‘ latest album, which can’t come soon enough. The track, “Retreat,” is also available for instant download when you pre-order the album on iTunes, so if you love it, you know what to do.

Next, we have a diverse array of single premieres and free downloads from Grim Tower, Mark Mulcahy, Way Yes and Say Hi, who just released the music to the adorable film Free Samples, starring The Social Network‘s Jesse Eisenberg.

On the music video front, AM & Shawn Lee give us their new video for “Two Times,” PVT remind us how awesome their February release is with the video for the title track, and Children of Bodom make it easy for you to try out your Metal singing chops with their lyric video for “Transference.”

To conclude, we’ve included a very special video of Local Natives performing alongside a troupe of dancers interpreting their song “Bowery.” It’s very unique and quite breathtaking.

Happy Weekend!

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)!
