September 13, 2013 Freeloader Friday No Comments

Carcass_SurgicalSteelWe have so much great music to share with you this Freeloader Friday, we can’t contain our excitement. Four full album streams, four amazing track premieres, and four mind-blowing music videos. Get ready.

Start by getting your Metal on with Carcass, who is finally releasing their latest opus next week. You can preview the whole thing now. Joanna Gruesome‘s full album stream is also a must-listen, and if you don’t believe us, check out what Drowned In Sound and Pitchfork had to say about it. Also available for complete streams are TRAAMS‘ upcoming album and Jessy Lanza‘s latest.

On the single stream front, get a dose of Dublin singer-songwriter Declan O’Rourke, who (shh…) is going to be performing a Stairwell Series for us later this month! Young Galaxy just dished a brand new song from the Deluxe Edition of Ultramarine, which includes new tracks in addition to remixes and B-sides. Teen Daze are back again with a new album this October, and they have the first song, appropriately titled “Listen,” ready for you to… *drum roll*… listen to. And closing this category is music from a band led by one of our very own Orchardites, Young Unknowns. The site on which the track is streaming is also created by a fellow Orchardite, Drew Schorno, and everything about this experience is simply beautiful.

Music videos this week are a treat indeed. Au Revoir Simone created a three-woman tribute to the 1985 Martin Scorsese cult classic After Hours in the video for “Crazy;” AM & Shawn Lee, whose U.S. tour kicks off September 26th, put together an animated space wonder; Oddisee took the name of their new album seriously when making the video for this serene and beautiful instrumental track; and Punk Rockers State Champs took footage from their recently completed Warped Tour performances to make the video that is the perfect closing to this gem-filled Freeloader Friday.

Have a great weekend, y’all!

Freeloader Friday: Tracy Lawrence, Flaamingos, The Black Angels, Au Revoir Simone, Young Galaxy, Sons of Hippies, Forest Fire, Black Hearted Brother, V V Brown and Queen Kwong

August 23, 2013 Freeloader Friday No Comments

Tracy Lawrence album coverSummer is nearing its end, and one of the few things to comfort me is the amazing collection of Fall releases coming our way. This Freeloader Friday includes some neat previews of what’s to come, some exciting revisits of what has passed, and a couple of brand new music hot off the racks.

Proof of hotness numero uno is Tracy Lawrence, who premiered his new album, aptly named Headlights, Taillights and Radios on SiriusXM and not one but two top-notch online Country magazines: The Boot, which we’ve featured below, and Taste of Country. Press play now. Our second full album stream is an early taste of what’s hitting stores next week: Flaamingos‘ self-titled debut LP. Something unique for you this week is a free download of a live session by The Black Angels in San Francisco. The EP includes three live tracks and you can play it while you read the kickass interview Noisey had with the band.

Next, we’ve got new music from Au Revoir Simone‘s upcoming album, which if their intimate preview show at The East Village Standard was any indication will be one to play on repeat for weeks and weeks. Young Galaxy, who was just included on the Polaris Music Prize Short List (woot!), is treating us to a brand new track, which comes out August 27 as a standalone single and as part of a Deluxe Edition of their album Ultramarine, which lands next month. Also heating up this week’s Freeloader Friday are Blackburner, who took Sons of Hippies‘ “Mirrorball” for a whirl in a killer remix; Forest Fire with a second track from their upcoming album; and the star-studded Black Hearted Brother, which includes guitarist/vocalist Neil Halstead (Slowdive, Mojave 3), electronics guy Mark Van Hoen (Seefeel, Locust, Scala) and Nick Holton, the mastermind behind Holton’s Opulent Oog.

Closing Freeloader Friday are two not-to-be-missed music videos: one from V V Brown, which is the sequel to her first video for “Samson” and part of a trio of videos that build into a short film written and co-directed by our leading lady; and the other from Queen Kwong, which includes a lot of what she herself calls “the golden fire that is corn syrup.” Yep, I’ll let you look into that one yourself. ;)

Freeloader Friday: Heliotropes, Hospital Ships, Slum Village, Duologue, AM & Shawn Lee and Young Galaxy

Heliotropes - A Constant SeaHello all and Happy Friday! The second half of June welcomes a slew of release dates for artists… and we certainly have some treats in store. From Pop to Punk, Underground Rap and more, we have some great material that will satisfy all your musical tastes. If that isn’t enough, our must-see music video of the week is Duologue‘s “Machine Stop.” Be one of the first to check out this awesome 3D video… no special glasses necessary.

So, let’s begin. First, we have a girl group from Brooklyn by the name of Heliotropes. Their group was listed as the top band to see by CMJ this year and you can preview their entire album now. Another group that gives its audience a sonically packed experience is Hospital Ships, and you can get hooked onto the entrancing tone of these Kansas rockers right away by listening to their full album on Pitchfork Advance. Slum Village gives us a change of pace with their underground Rap album Evolution. The 3 artists from Detroit have given us a sampler of the album, which hits stores June 25.

By now, you should already be in love with AM & Shawn Lee‘s La Musique Numérique. This week, we have the music video for “Good Blood,” which fuses Pop, Soul, Funk and World music all into one delectable package. We continue to spoil you with music videos via the Canadian Electro-Pop band Young Galaxy. Their single “New Summer” portrays dark irony between the song and the visuals. See it for yourself below!

Happy listening, happy watching, and most importantly… TGIF!

Freeloader Friday: ASG, Valient Thorr, Children of Bodom, Whirr, Local Natives, Scott & Charlene’s Wedding, PANTyRAID, Young Galaxy and Har Mar Superstar

ASG Blood Drive album artToday is the day, friends. That special day you look forward to each week that signifies “you made it!,” “kick back yo’ feet!” and “free music from The Orchard!” It’s also the last Friday before Summer Fridays begin at The Orchard. Summer Fridays (how many times do you think I can say “Friday” in this post?) are when our office closes at 2PM between Memorial Day and Labor Day and you realize how much our company rocks.

But regardless of whether you also benefit from Summer Fridays, or have a Monday-Friday kind of job where all the things I mentioned above apply, the one common thing we all have today is: it’s Freeloader Friday.

So jumping right in, this week we’ve got the track that goes with maybe the prettiest album art I’ve seen so far this year, courtesy of Hard Rock band ASG. Then, Pitchfork went on a roll this week with streams from Valient Thorr, Children of Bodom, Whirr and a cool remix of Local Natives‘ “Wooly Mammoth” entitled “Wooly Robot.” Australian-raised singer-songwriter Craig Dermody of Scott & Charlene’s Wedding sings us through what it’s like moving to NYC, and PANTyRAID give us something worth pillow-talking about with their album mini mix, out later this month on The Glitch Mob‘s imprint, Glass Air Records.

To close out, Young Galaxy and Har Mar Superstar grace us with music videos for their respective tracks “Fall For You” and “Lady, You Shot Me,” which snagged a Track of the Day title on Q The Music last week.

A pretty rad selection this week, if I may say so myself! Queuing these up now on Ex.fm.

Happy Friday! (Thought I’d throw it in there one more time for good measure.)

Freeloader Friday: The Melvins, Beacon, Hey Sholay, Javelin, Andrew Cedermark, The Casket Girls, Coultrain, Young Galaxy and Thee Oh Sees

The Melvins Everybody Loves SausageThe weekend is upon us once again, and you know what that means… tons of free tunes from us to you. That’s right, Freeloader Friday is back to provide all you weekend warriors with loads of new music that is sure to make you start saying TGIFF — Thank Goodness It’s Freeloader Friday!

If you’re in the mood for exclusive content, then you’re in luck, as Javelin dropped a previously unreleased song this past week that oozes maracas (pair some guacamole with this track and you’ll have yourself quite the fiesta). But that’s not all, both Hey Sholay and Andrew Cedermark have new tunes for your listening pleasure as well. Yes, this weekend is going to be one awesome aural experience.

The visuals are on lock for you this weekend too, as Young Galaxy appreciate senior citizens and dance it out with their new video, while Thee Oh Sees get lethal. (We’re not joking, viewer discretion is advised for the San Fran rockers’ new vid!)

Oh, you want more? Well, we have four, count ‘em, FOUR full album streams for you this weekend. To start off, The Melvins premiere a cover record of classic artists ranging from Venom to Queen. Make sure to head over to Spin to read frontman Buzz Osborne’s commentary on each track. In addition, Beacon usher in the ambient pop vibes and Coultrain bring the funky, soul train sounds with their respective album streams.

Finally, The Casket Girls are streaming their eponymous record over on FILTER. If you’re unfamiliar with this group, they consist of Elsa and Phaedra Greene and Ryan Graveface of Black Moth Super Rainbow, who recently released their new record Cobra Juicy a few months ago. If you missed it, they also promoted the album with one pretty cool Kickstarter campaign. Let’s just say, masks were involved.

Whew, that’s a lot of tunes. Happy listening!
