I hope you’re all gearing for the long weekend ahead, and I know you're gonna need some fresh tunes. So, we offer you this week’s Spotify playlist, packed with songs that’ll make you popular with your friends and your next door neighbor. Let’s get lit.
BEST NEW MUSIC: INDIE, ALT POP, CHILL
With Memorial Day Weekend and the arrival of June signaling the unofficial start of summer across the Northern Hemisphere, get your playlists up to scratch this season with another serving of Best Chill Music, featuring SALES, Kllo, Moses Sumney, and plenty of others.
One of the all-time hip-hop muses* said “Confidence is quiet. Insecurity is loud.” On her debut single “Pull Up on You” Los Angeles-via-Delaware artist Temi Oni channels this timeless sentiment.
While it’s likely that nothing will ever top Riton and Kah-Lo’s first outing together, they’re clearly not going to stop trying. Ginger is a certifiable banger, the best one since the first imo. This bubbly, bouncing, future funk electro jam is bound to get any dancefloor hype.
Day in and day out we scour the internet and other sources to bring you the tastiest and most important meal of the day in the form of The Best of’s. There’s no doubt you’ll be coming back for seconds. Help yourselves, there is plenty of best of Indie Pop to go around for everyone. Enjoy!

Here's one thing that our ears are almost certain to agree on – that this week's edition of We Are: The Guard's Top Indie Songs is among the best yet!

The sun is radiating heat over Los Angeles today and I’m in an unusually good spirit. Could it be that this week’s Best of Indie Pop songs are rubbing off their good vibes on me? Lend an ear to the following songs from Drake, Louis The Child, Alison Wonderland and more.
For a very long time I have told anyone who would listen (and several more who would not) that every good cover song has to keep the core of the original but present the song in a new way. And DYAN’s cover of Cycling Trivialities does exactly that.
