BEST NEW MUSIC: INDIE, ALT POP, CHILL

Haris sings about the excitation of a well-kept secret in a silken falsetto, reminiscent of an un-jaded The Weeknd or early Michael Jackson over a funky synth bassline and soulful disco beat. Hush brings to mind late '90s neo-soul, most notably Jamiroquai.
Monday is here, the coffee is brewing, and the post-weekend Instagram feed is LIT. This week’s edition includes Nas, Kygo, and Eminem — so all you cool kids, brace yourself and hold tight while I guide you through what you missed on social media in the last three days.
As another working week rolls round, we're up and running once again this Monday morning with the latest edition of Top Indie Songs, featuring Arcade Fire, CHROMATICS, Dirty Projectors, and more!
We’ve made it to what I’VE been personally looking forward to all YEAR — the FIFA World Cup, baby! So if you don’t mind me, I’ll be MIA for like, about a month. But don’t worry, I’m leaving you all with some fresh tunes from our weekly and constantly updating Spotify playlist.
As another working week draws to a conclusion, why not join me in embarking on a lil' mental getaway this Friday? Just grab your headphones, and maybe a Bahama Mama too, and hit play on the following songs from Olafur Arnalds & SOHN, Cigarettes After Sex, Lykke Li, and more!
We wanted to go beyond the known quantities of Lady Gaga, Sam Smith, and Perfume Genius, et al, and focus on some up and coming queer artists who are driving music into the future.
Starling's Profiteroles sounds delicate and unguarded, personal and confessional, while simultaneously sounding tough, resilient, and, above all, catchy. It strikes the balance between stripped-back elegant minimalism and lavish, lush Top 40 Pop.
You can’t just spend all day, every day, on the Instagram scroll trying to find out what your favorite musicians are up to, can you? NO! So we’ll do it for you!

There are few things in life that last forever, i.e. styrofoam and the lasting impression of today’s curated indie pop songs from Party Pupils, Tove Lo, 88rising, and more.
