Published Nov 25, 2013Black Friday is just around the corner, which means thousands of Canadians are gearing up to purchase some discounted swag. But you don't have to head stateside to pick up some good deals; read our weekly Music/Video roundup below to find all the past week's greatest free (that's right, free) music videos, songs and albums currently streaming on the web. Then, head on over to our Music/Video section to check out even more great music.
N.E.R.D. frontman Pharrell has had a pretty busy year, what with his guest spots on Daft Punk's "Get Lucky" and Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines," his legal beef with Will.i.am., and work on The Amazing Spider-Man 2 soundtrack with acclaimed composer Hans Zimmer. If that wasn't enough, he's now released a 24-hour music video (the first of its kind) for his upbeat Despicable Me 2 track "Happy." If you've got a free day on your hands, jam out to the jovial number now.
Not to be outdone in the soundtrack department, U2 have returned to the small screen with a lyric video for their Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom cut "Ordinary Love." If you like anthemic arena rock and the idea of Bono posing with fake knuckle tattoos, this video is for you.
Billie Joe Armstrong and Norah Jones's Everly Brothers covers LP, Songs Our Daddy Taught Us, is streaming in its entirety for your listening pleasure, while Montreal-based art rockers Filthy Haanz give us some visual eye candy with an official music video for "Magic Octopussy" and live clip for "Closer to the Sun."
Last but not least, Manitoban metalheads KEN Mode continue their glorious year with a slow-motion video for their tension-building post-rock number "Romeo Must Never Know" off of this year's Entrench LP. Tide yourself over by watching the sweat-soaked three-piece in all their sonic glory until their next Canadian tour.
