BEST NEW MUSIC: INDIE, ALT POP, CHILL

Do you ever find yourself wondering how the fabulously talented and wealthy musicians and celebrities of the world live their lives, but are too lazy to stalk them on Social Media like a normal person? Never fear, cause we’ve got you covered. Let’s take a quick look at the happenings from around the web.
If the We Are The Guard Spotify Weekly Chart isn’t the highlight of your week then I don’t understand you. From the bottom of our hearts we love our readers and only want to share our love of music with the whole world (wide web). We’ve got thirty-three of the hottest tracks tearing up the charts.
The Maryland crooner has delivered a pair of songs that remind us that Gallant is one of the most creative and distinct talents in the R&B world. We’ve already covered Gentleman, and Doesn’t Matter is an equally fantastic song. Yet it gets even better when you add a little A$AP Ferg.
It's been a long week, we're all tired and exhausted, so let's take a moment to relax and unwind ahead of weekend. Maybe a cocktail or two wouldn't go so bad with the following tracks from Gorillaz, Mura Masa, JMSN, Gallant, Vancouver Sleep Clinic, and five other faves?!
Oh Man! Oh My! Oh Wow! Do we have the goods for you today!!! We Are: The Guard is proud to offer face time with the personal homeboy, your new favorite musician, LA’s pop star extraordinaire, jesse saint john.
Masturbation is the swiss army knife of pleasure. While you’re off doing or not doing the thing, we have here 10 songs that speak precisely about pushing all the right buttons. Some you know and others may come as a surprise. Enjoy, and by enjoy we mean the songs of course.
We’re back and ready to do what we do best. Every week We Are: The Guard’s Best of Indie Pop column begins with a sigh of relief because it’s Wednesday and we’re keeping things on your playlist fresh from now until Friday. Lend your ears to music from Nao, SOPHIE, Tessa Violet, and more. Grab your headphones and get ready to hit play. This is gonna be hawt!
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.
