Boomerang – Yebba
Young, up and coming singer, Yebba continues to prove her immense skill with every new song release. On her newest track, “Boomerang,” Yebba continues her streak of fun, well-written songs that put her absolutely beautiful and unique voice on display. This song evokes the vibes of greats like Amy Winehouse.
Corsica ’80 – Kraak & Smaak
Electronic funk/disco group, Kraak & Smaak, has put out a juicy new release in “Corsica ’80.” Like the title alludes to, this track has a 80s retro sound mixed with their typical funky grooves to make one hell of a jam.
Regularly Scheduled Programming – My Morning Jacket
My Morning Jacket has been making ethereal, powerful music for many years now with their signature use of hard rock guitar and trippy synths. The vocals of lead singer/icon, Jim James, brings us right back to those feelings from ten years ago. We can’t wait to hear more new MMJ!
star-crossed – Kacey Musgraves
American sweetheart, Kacey Musgraves, is back and gearing up for a big new album. With the release date already out (9/10), Kacey has released two new songs this week, “justified,” and the below track “star-crossed.” Kacey also plans to release a 50-minute film to pair along with the album which includes hilarious comedian/actress Meg Staltler.
family ties – Baby Keem (ft. Kendrick Lamar)
King Kendrick is back. After a big announcement for his final TDE album, Kung Fu Kenny hops on a track with rapper Baby Keem. It’s incredible to hear him back in a new song and we are extremely excited for what’s to come.
It’s Like A Dream – NEIL FRANCES
Funk electronic duo, NEIL FRANCES, delivers us their newest single that is a nostalgic dance track that will make you feel like you’re in a city in the 80s. The funked up guitar and bass line really drive this song along with some synths boosting it up.
Something’s about to go down – Anti Up
Anti Up, Chris Lake and Chris Lorenzo’s experimental collaboration, has been releasing some wild and fun tracks over the years from “Hey Pablo” to “Pizza,” and the boys have lately been releasing singles to tease their upcoming EP. “Something’s about to go down” definitely has an experimental vibe, and we are really excited to hear it live!
Up All Night – OFFAIAH
Defected Records regular Offaiah is here with yet another fun and catchy dance track with not only really tight drums and bass, but a vocal that will get stuck in your head for days!
Whispers In The Wind – Michael Bibi
UK king of the after hours style of house, Michael Bibi is back with another hard and heavy dance floor banger. Similar to his other tunes, this one has some super clean and busy drums with some of the most pumping bass around! Try this one during your next workout or dance party.
EP Meanwhile EP – Gorillaz
Legendary rap/electronic group, Gorillaz, continue to put awesome music into the world twenty years after their self-titled debut album in 2001. The new EP, Meanwhile, include three songs that include the signature Gorillaz’ beats and vocals.
Album How Long Do You Think It’s Gonna Last? – Big Red Machine
Big Red Machine, the supergroup that teams up Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon with The National frontman Aaron Dessner, has released their second album together. Featuring many of their songwriter friends like Fleet Foxes, Ilsey, and Taylor Swift, How Long Do You Think It’s Gonna Last, is an awesome blend of the two musical stars’ sounds. Some of our favorite tracks from the album are “Phoenix,” “June’s a River,” & “Birch.”
