Freakin’ Weekend

Freakin’ Weekend Jam: Icona Pop – I Love It

Gotta love dem Swedes.  They’re hot.  They’re trendy.  And they make some damn fine music.

Case in point: Icono Pop.  This pair of Scandic beauties has created what might potentially become the hipster party anthem of the late summer in “I Love It.”  It’s dance-y, it’s catchy, it’s got great sing-a-long-ability (yeah, I just made that word up, deal with it) – basically it’s just a shit ton of fun.  Trust me, one listen and you’ll be hooked (and probably singing it in your head non-stop this weekend).

Since it’s Friday and I’m one week into a new job I’m going to leave you with less words and more music.  If you’re curious to find out more about the duo, check out this Pitchfork interview or their Facebook page.

Happy Friday ya’ll.

It’s the weekend? Time for a PANTS OFF DANCE OFF.

Freakin’ Weekend Jam: Natural Child – B$G P$MP$N

Oh yes, you read that right.  I said B$G P$MP$N – no I’s, just $’s.

Hailing from Nashville, Natural Child is bluesy, retro-y, rock ‘n roll band.  And they are fucking awesome.  The band’s sound is marked by heavy guitars, dirty vocals, so-so singing (in a good way).  Maybe it’s the vocals, maybe it’s the guitar, or maybe it’s the fact that both frontmen sound like they only perform 6+ beers deep, but they remind me a lot of Deer Tick aged down a couple years.

Going into the weekend, nothing sounds better to me than a gritty rock song called B$G P$MP$N.  So if you’re feeling a little sleepy, pop this bad boy on and you’ll feel like going out in no time.
