Read all the way through or make your way to the bottom for the full Spotify playlist of our Friday discoveries.

Crawling Kingsnake – The Black Keys
Legendary modern rock band, The Black Keys, are back after a couple years off from making music as their band (as they often do). Their new song, “Crawling Kingsnake,” brings us the old school Black Keys sound that we’ve grown to love. With some hard hitting lead guitar and the always powerful drums, this track is hopefully a wonderful taste of what’s to come for their next album.

Let You Down – Hellberg (ft. Magsy)
On “Let You Down,” Swedish producer Hellberg teams up with IP fam Magsy to craft a track that perfectly fuses the producers electronic chops with the up and coming singers golden vocals. This track is a blast of emotion and is a great song to lead us into summertime.

Pretty Boys – Paul McCartney (ft. Khruangbin)
Paul McCartney recruits one of our favorite bands, Khruangbin, for a vibed out rock track that feels awesome and is a perfect track for summertime. Its washy and fun with a rocking beat and some mystical vocals.

The Pressure – Eli & Fur & Disciples
Two amazing modern electronic artists pair up to create a fun and mysterious track to make us move. Electronic duo, Eli & Fur, and trio, Disciples, come together on “The Pressure,” bringing us an enjoyable, upbeat song that we’re really excited about.

Rufufus (Sylvan Esso Remix) – Remi Wolf
Sylvan Esso has been growing their sound for many years now and have come a very long way. On their most recent remix, they give their take on Remi Wolf’s “Rufufus” and it is fun, upbeat, and more housey than we’ve heard from the duo in the past.

If Ever – Paula Fuga (ft. Jack Johnson & Ben Harper)
Paula Fuga, who is one of Hawaii’s top female musicians, recruits two of the biggest names in beach rock, Jack Johnson & Ben Harper, for a song that is relaxing and will help you float away on this beautiful Friday.

The Worship (KC Lights Remix) – AVIRA & Diana Miro
KC Lights has put out a couple of some of our go-to upbeat house tunes for a sunset dance sesh, and their remix of “The Worship” is definitely being added to the playlist. This one is a vocal-forward house track with a really bouncy bassline, meant to rock any dance-floor!

EP Thermal / Oblivion – Nora En Pure
The queen of melodic house/techno is back with another EP! Once again, Nora killed it on this one. Both tracks are recognizably Nora from the start, with a clean punching beat and long and drawn-out synths, with “Oblivion” having more of a clubby feel and “Thermal” being one that takes you on a journey and inspires you to reminisce.

Album Slime Language 2 – Young Stoner Life
Young Stoner Life, Young Thug’s label imprint is back with Slime Language 2 and it is a beast of an album. With features from pretty much every popular rapper in the game right now, this album is front to back quality music. Some of our favorites are “Solid (ft. Drake),” “Diamonds Dancing (ft. Travis Scott),” & “Superstar (ft. Future).”

Album The Battle At Garden’s Gate – Greta Van Fleet

Paul McCartney is still pumping out music after a lifetime of bringing incredible music to the world. Featuring a slew of modern artists from Phoebe Bridgers to Anderson .Paak, this album of reimagined songs is pretty awesome. Some of our favorites are “When Winter Comes (Anderson .Paak Remix),” “Seize The Day (ft. Phoebe Bridgers),” & “Deep Down (Blood Orange Remix).”

Album missunderstood…still – Queen Naija
Detroit-born R&B singer, Queen Naija, has released her follow up album to her 2020 album missunderstood. Bringing on a bunch of awesome features and crafting her signature R&B sound, Queen Naija creates an awesome album worth a listen through. Some of our favorites are “Dream (ft. Lucky Daye),” “Passionate,” & “Without You (ft. Russ).”

Album Californian Soil – London Grammar
English trio, London Grammar, has been putting out awesome electronic pop for some time now and they have just released their first new album since 2017.
