    Converse Rubber Tracks recording artist Abadabad are the subject of this week's "Oh Hello" and "Track of the Week" clips!

    Meet Abadabad, a five-piece whose members met at Berklee College of Music while training to become jazz musicians. Listen to the band discuss how they came together, the meaning behind their name, their own music, and what their goal was in creating their music.

    Watch the "Oh Hello" below:

    The single "Take It Slow" by Abadabad is this week's "Track of the Week." The band came to Converse Rubber Tracks and jumped into setting up their instruments with the aid of the studio engineers. Watch the five members of Abadabad record their original single "Take It Slow" at Converse Rubber Tracks and download the track for free from the Converse Facebook.

    Free music is good. Free, good music is better.

    Enjoy the "TotW" footage below:

    Also, this June, New Yorkers can also catch the band live when they perform at Converse Rubber Tracks Live during Northside Festival on Saturday, June 15. The band will open the free show at McCarren Park for headlining act The Walkmen and share the bill with Phosphorescent and Friend Roulette.

    Are you going to get better acquainted with Abadabad? Did you grab your free download?
