FRESH VID: FREE WEED

by


You smell those hazy sweet fumes pouring forth from Portland, Oregon? That’s FREE WEED, the sunny junk-pop solo project of prolific stoner Eric Gage, head hancho at the always-excellent GNAR TAPES and member of longtime west coast freaks WHITE FANG. He’s got a new split tape (really a double album) with Northampton homeboy SAM GAS CAN called ‘TGIF 24-7/Why Can’t I Be Normal,’ and its a heady stew of warped americana pop gold. Gage’s steady croon – whether bedroom-echo falsetto or rockabilly baritone – carries simple, indelibly catchy melodies that go down so smooth like melted butter, spreading over the nooks and cranies of your brain. Soft, propulsive hooks and minimal percussive backbeats let these rollickin’ feel-good grooves work their laid back magic, channeling late 60’s sunshine pop with a early 90’s acid-wash that adds a nice toasted crunch. Its got that fuzzy comfy feel that makes you feel right at home, eating children’s cereal with chocolate milk at 4 in the afternoon. Check out Sam Gas Can‘s side while your at it – a sharp, twisted foil to Free Weed’s sunburnt brownie sweetness. Get it at Gnar Tapes NOW (or whenever you get around to it)!
