BEST NEW MUSIC: INDIE, ALT POP, CHILL

There is no way to predict exactly who will appear on We Are: The Guard’s Weekly Chart on Spotify. Even I don’t have that insider knowledge. What I do know is what to look for when it comes to the kind of music that makes it on the charts.
The buzz has been building since the October release of “Buried in the Sand,” and this week HÆLOS made it official, announcing their sophomore LP Any Random Kindness and releasing a brand new song, “Kyoto.”
If you've had to scrap your Friday plans due to the arrival of the polar vortex, well, fear not as We Are: The Guard is here to keep you company while you wait for the thaw this weekend with the latest edition of Best Chill Music.
So you’ve made it all the way to Sunday, huh? Keeping up with these lists like your life depends on it? (IT DOES). We love supplying the goods so that you don’t have to listen to each and every act on the lineup all on your lonesome. What is it? Like 174? That’s too many!
If you’re feeling overwhelmed and don’t know where to start you can always turn on the radio and hear the same songs over and over on repeat all day and miss out on the freshest indie pop songs being released … or, you can swing by our Best of Indie Pop playlist on Spotify and listen to all the latest pieces we are loving.
Like Rivers Cuomo and company covering “Scrubs” wasn't enough to process for one week, I have a lot more for you to get through in the latest edition of We Are: The Guard's New Indie Music.
Boy oh boy, this real-life American soap opera that we’re living is in need of a killer ass soundtrack. Something has to tune out the grunting and groaning coming from the east coast and what better way than to blast today’s Weekly Chart on Spotify.
As another working week draws to a conclusion, join me in hunkering down with We Are: The Guard's Top Chill Music, featuring a brand new selection of winter warmers from James Blake, American Football, HONNE, Vancouver Sleep Clinic, Lolo Zouaï, and more.
