Freeloader Friday: Carcass, Joanna Gruesome, TRAAMS, Jessy Lanza, Declan O’Rourke, Young Galaxy, Teen Daze, Young Unknowns, Au Revoir Simone, AM & Shawn Lee, Oddisee and State Champs
We 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!
