BEST NEW MUSIC: INDIE, ALT POP, CHILL

Fix Me has Francis teaming up with the Chicano mumble crooner Cuco, an LA icon in his own right. This sound is a departure for both artists, with Cuco’s usual lo-fi bedroom sound getting a major overhaul from a relatively restrained production by Francis standards.
Would it be shocking to say that the Grammys was a hot mess? I’m just glad it’s all wrapped up and we can finally move on to next year’s nominee predictions. I have all my money on the artists featured in today’s Best of Indie Pop post.
Last fall the iconic UK electronic duo The Chemical Brothers announced their ninth studio album, No Geography. This week Got to Keep On was unveiled to the world complete with a music video directed by siblings Michel and Olivier Gondry.
Gold-plated gramophones at the ready, as it's time to tune in to this special Grammy Edition of We Are: The Guard's 10 Twitter Moments, featuring Ariana Grande, Kacey Musgraves, Cardi B, Nicki Minaj, Janelle Monáe, and more.
If “Music's Biggest Night” has ironically left you fearing for the future of the art form, don't worry as We Are: The Guard is here to restore your faith with the latest edition of Top Indie Songs. Enjoy the following tracks from Cage the Elephant, Karen O, X Ambassadors, and even more!
This is not the first collaboration between Theophilus London and Tame Impala’s Kevin Parker. In fact the song we’re here to talk about today, “Whiplash,” was initially recorded in 2016.
As 5 p.m. edges ever closer, feel free to join me in easing into the weekend with yet another edition of We Are: The Guard's Top Chill Songs, featuring Naughty Boy, RY X, Bibio, and plenty of others!
Instead of the Best of Indie Pop Songs this week we will call it the best of what the Grammy’s should have nominated. It’s our column so why not? The artists below are just as talented as the ones who are running for a golden trophy.
