Not only is MAAD busy making a big impression with her R&B music style, she’s also a model, DJ, and a talented film director. Her latest music release, Touch Me featuring Grammy nominated artist Ro-James, is nothing short of incredible.
Awful Records’ FATHER just released his hot new pop-trap track Hands, produced by Meltycanon, following last year’s track, Heartthrob. We’re super excited to share this track with you since it’s been a little while since we’ve heard anything new from the Atlanta-based artist, and “Hands” definitely delivers.
Outkast’s Hey Ya is one of the most beloved songs of our generation. It would be near-impossible to make a cover that’s as memorable as the original, but evidently The Guard’s very own DENM was up for the challenge.
Brand new artist On Planets (aka Sean Wharton) just released his debut single, Cure, and it’s our first taste of his upcoming EP, Personal Space. The Vancouver-based producer is quickly stirring up some well-deserved buzz with this celestial sounding track.
I’ve been seriously lacking some sugary sweet tunes in my life. But luckily new artist TYSM (short for Thank You So Much) is here and she totally delivers. The Texas native just dropped her debut single, Honeymoon Phase, and we just can’t get enough.
Coachella is about seeing the hottest acts surrounded by the hottest people in the hot desert sun. So get your sunscreen ready and get this party started! I have compiled a playlist of the coolest / most interesting / best sounding artists in small font? Why?! Because I love music and I love you! Now hop to it and have some fun because every one of these artists is three fire emojis.
What’s up Chella-heads? The world’s most important festival (for a band to become instantly famous and/or you to show off your brand new self-designed fashion line!!) just dropped their annual line-up and it’s a doozy. So get your sunscreen ready and get this party started early! How early?! How about noon when the gates open for some of the coolest artists on the lineup?
If it’s true that first impressions are everything then Schwarz is bound for accolades. Home is the first song from the artist (also known as Roland Meyer de Voltaire) and what I hear is pure talent. Schwarz’s voice is smooth and haunting. His sound is the kind that is easy to listen to when falling asleep at night.
The British duo of Alison Goldfrapp and Will Gregory are finally returning to the droney yet catchy dance-pop roots that helped them break onto the scene in the first place seventeen years ago. Anymore is a can’t miss single from two amazing artists that are firing on all the right cylinders.
Expect 2017 to be the year that music discovery is finally handed back to YOU, the listeners. On that mysterious note, let's get Monday underway as we always do with the latest edition of New Indie Music, which this week features songs from David Bowie, Father John Misty, Young Fathers, LPX, Day Wave and lots more!
