Yebba - "Evergreen"
This is the moment I've been waiting for since we discovered
YEBBA's incredible Sofar Session performance. Now we have an officially recorded version of a brand new song from the singer who was co-signed by Ed Sheeran. It's super soulful and gives off a bit of an Alabama Shakes vibe. I'm into it.
Wilco - "Locator"
I was in a record store while away on a trip and this song was playing in the store. For some reason, it really forced its way into my brain, so I bothered the cashier to find out which song it was. Of course it was Wilco. I've been listening to it ever since.
Bishop Briggs - "Dream"
Man, I can listen to Bishop sing forever. Her voice is so powerful, and it goes hand-in-hand with all of the anthemic choruses she seems to effortlessly churn out. This track cuts right to the emotion.
Julien Baker - "Shadowboxing"
This is off Baker's sophomore album, Turn Out This Lights,
which just came out today! This song is vulnerable, powerful, and so cathartic. It pulls me right in.
SNOW CULTURE - "Cold"
This Swedish electro-pop duo puts a really cool, darker spin on this Maroon 5 song. Their rendition is foreboding and chilling and the production synchronizes with the lyrics astoundingly well.
Jessie Ware - "Love to Love"
Ware's latest album Glasshouse
is so versatile. This song is off the deluxe version, and has this really cool late-night dance feel that feels reminiscent of "Running."
Cyn - "Only With You"
Pop newcomer Cyn has sung her way right into my heart. Every time I listen to "Only With You" I can't help but dance a bit in my chair. It's just that good. She may be a newcomer, but she's signed on Katy Perry's label, so we know she's here to stay.
MØ - "When I Was Young"
MØ just surprised us with a new EP called When I Was Young
and it's amazing. The chorus of "When I Was Young" features some crazy horn section that feels whimsical. It's unlike anything we've heard MØ do in the past.
Cults - "I Took Your Picture"
So we just released a session with Cults and it's one of my favorites, ever. I remember when they were in here, testing the sound, and they probably played " I Took You Picture" over 10 times and it never got old. If anything, it kept getting better and better. Check out the session here
Alvvays - "Archie, Marry Me"
Super lush, with a full-bodied wall of crunchy guitar riffs and dreamy vocals. This song reminds me so much of summer and carries me through those winter blues.
Alex Cameron - "Runnin' Outta Luck"
I'm from New Jersey so I'm required by law to like anything that sounds like Bruce Springsteen. Add some funky and upbeat keys and you get this certified good time of a song.
Boy Harsher - "Country Girl"
Dark techno with a repetitive, heart-thumping and hip-moving beat and some 80's-inspired wailing guitars that sound straight out of Top Gun
. The self-titled EP drops today, peep it.
