BEST NEW MUSIC: INDIE, ALT POP, CHILL

The tire screech of a quick getaway, a record scratch to pause the music, snorting a line of cocaine-- whatever you want the sound effect to represent, it can and it does. Skrrrt is the catch-all phrase for young rappers who don’t have any clue what to say in their song.
Watch out Frank Ocean, Dijon coming for your steez. The world has a new visionary alternative R&B artist with stripped-bare mellow vibes that can rip your heart out and stomp all over it, without even breaking a sweat.
Featuring HEALTH, Maggie Rogers, boy pablo, RAT BOY, Sundara Karma, and more, this human-curated playlist is sure to see us through whatever the simulation has in store for us over the next seven days!
I’m Still Here is a triumphant song dealing with adversity, powering forward, keeping up the good fight, charging on the face of trauma, losing the battle, but winning the war. The intensity and scope of this track is so dark and uplifting in a way that could only be described as cautiously optimistic.
After a long, stressful working week, we all deserve a moment to relax and unwind, and what better way to do that than by cranking up the volume on some chilltastic vibes?! Check out the following songs from HONNE, Troye Sivan, RÜFÜS DU SOL, Ella Mai, Andrew Rayel & Garibay, and more.
“Fashion After All” is Poppy’s homage to Daft Punk’s Human After All. With that release, Gaspard and Tomas were seemingly admitting that they were only pretending to be Robots, while Poppy might just actually be one.
CAUTION: There is an Alvin & The Chipmunks-esque high-pitch speediness to the beginning of this track that requires you to come prepared with at least a modicum of hype to effectively enjoy this incredibly interesting tune.
