1. "Bluedgenes" by D.A. Stern
To kick off our weekends, who doesn't LOVE a lame play on words? Dad jokes are literally my life, so the title to the new D.A. Stern track drew me in right off the bat - HA! - there's another pun....watch the video, you'll get it. Nothing gets me more stoked for the weekend than some cigarette smoking, beer chugging, dysfunctional athletes. Based out of L.A., D.A. Stern is here to give you some super solid, chill, quirky, sort of psychedelic but pretty straightforward rock n roll.
Check out the new video for "Bluedgenes" Below!
2. "Your Team Sucks" by The Tracys
Listen to this song. Just do it. You'll probably ask yourself why you clicked play. Maybe thats okay. Maybe its not. I'm not sure whether I absolutely love this because its totally ridiculous, or if its just bad. Either way I watched it three time in a row. "Your Team Sucks" is your classic punk rock, meets System of A Down, meets whiny as fuck 15-year old girl. This is one for a few beers deep into Friday night!
3. "Feelings" by Rush Week
Sex, Smoke, Deer Masks, Beer, Glitter, Love. You'll get a rush of all of those in Philadelphia-based Rush Week's new track "Feelings". If you want a track to kick off your weekend with good vibes straight out of your favorite indie film look no more. Listen to the song once and you'll feel like you've already known it forever and will be jamming along by the halfway point. Watch the video and you'll be addicted. SUPER stoked for more music by this duo! They debut their album April 6th, and are about to absolutely CRUSH the indie pop airwaves.
4. "Fake You" by Yoke Lore
One of our New York favorites, Yoke Lore, is here to infect your brain with a new deep and spacey, but super groovy track. Speaking about the upcoming EP Absolutes Adrian Galvin (aka Yoke Lore) says
"These songs all gravitate around the struggle between two sides of something,” Galvin explains. The opening track, “Fake You,” is about the difficulty of realizing your perception of someone doesn’t necessarily match who they really are."
Keep an eye out for our extended feature with Yoke Lore in our upcoming FLOATED MAGAZINE ISSUE FOUR!
5. "Saved By The Summer (Shura Remix)" by Maja Francis
Rounding off this week's New Music Friday is a new remix of Maja Francis's "Saved By The Summer". Self-defined as "Cry Baby Pop", Swedish pop artist Maja Francis is usually throwing us some nice chill pop vibes. Combine that with Shura on this remix, and you've got the perfect song to get you stoked on drinking 15 Coronitas tonight. For those of us getting WRECKED by this super shit storm on the East Coast, it'll be a great escape from the frozen hell of Hoth outside right now.
