Best New Tracks

Vince Staples has finally released new music. BagBak is the first new song since last year’s Prima Donna EP and it’s just as fast and punchy as we would expect from the Long Beach native. The track is quintessential Staples with hard hits of the bass smothered by a high-styled sheen.
Like Someone In Love has been performed by greats such as Bing Crosby, Ella Fitzgerald, Frank Sinatra, Chet Baker, Björk, and other artists. Joining the notable performances is indie musician Bruno Major. With the help of indie artist Phairo, the two recreated the classic song into something refreshingly true to its jazz roots.
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.
Like exquisite light up jewelry, internet cat gifs, and Britney Spear’s trajectory, Kites by Swedish producer Grynpyret is a classic track whose sound captures some of the best memories as a kid. It's a hot mess of a track that for a quick 3 minutes makes you feel like a kid again. Carefree, fearless, and innocent to a degree with an uplifting airy style that that makes life feel simple and fun.
As part of his upcoming EP REAL, Henry Green releases a dizzying tune that will get people excited about taking a step back and diving into an intimate space where soft sultry beats serve as a safety blanket from the feeling of vulnerability that may be felt throughout More Than This.
There is intense emotion behind J. Cole’s music, almost that of torment. The singer-songwriter’s development of gripping word play behind his latest single, High For Hours, gives much for the listener to reflect on.
Is there any explanation needed for this pick? After decades transforming mainstream music and culture, David Bowie’s last known recordings have been released on the four-song EP, No Plan. The titular track was originally recorded for the Lazarus soundtrack and it is no less genius than what was released in 2016.
