This week we started with the premiere of the quarantine-styled music video from funky fun Branjae! The track “Free Facts” is paired with a video chat style video and preaches about the importance of self-education and asking questions.

 

We also premiered an exclusive pre-release to Adir L.C.’s newest EP Future, Tense. a day before its official release. It’s been a tense recent past, and the future is feeling the same—take an early listen to this new EP to soothe you into 2021.

 

Plus, Asheville, Tn.-based rockers Bad Molly released a stop motion animation video for their song “F/V Big Valley.” The song is in memory of their frontman Pete Elwell, who passed last year from an overdose. Coming from their newest split seven-inch, all profits go to Musicians for Overdose Prevention.
