Best New Tracks

Before everything became monetized and recorded, songs were passed down like folktales. Occasionally a new singer would take some creative liberties during a performance and another verse would be added to (...)
In the competition for most serenely beautiful vocals backed by experimental, if not even caustic production, Moses Sumney has now entered the arena once ruled unchallenged by FKA twigs (and basically invented by Bjork). “Virile” (...)
The wait is finally over! Royksopp's ambient techno epic "Shores Of Easy" is finally getting an official release! Eight years is an eternity in the realm of pop music and culture. While genres and pop music and hip-hop are always (...)
If you’re one of the poor, lonesome souls who finds themselves single in the year of 2019, you know things are in a bleak state. Dating has been outsourced to smartphones and algorithms which leads to an increase in superficiality and (...)
Alt-country singer/songwriter Jake Bugg returns with a sunny new single, "Kiss Like The Sun," just in time for the dark, cold time of year. Summer is already becoming a distant memory. We're several months deep into the new school (...)
Mike Posner and Naughty Boy live their best lives on "Live Before I Die." Pop music of all kinds - club pop, hip-hop, EDM, and so on - all have associations with decadence, hedonism, self-destruction. "It's better to burn out than to fade (...)
Charlotte Lawrence delivers a state of the union on the weird world we're living on "God Must Be Doing Cocaine." "May you live in interesting times." This proverb sounds like a blessing but was actually intended (...)

Mura Masa gets grimey on "Deal Wiv It" in collaboration with Slowthai. There's something particular about British hip-hop. The rasping brogue of Northern accents seem made for ranting, raving, waxing poetic on small slivers of life (...)
Sheffield, UK's Bring Me The Horizon turn in a cyber-metallic anthem for the Death Stranding soundtrack with "Ludens." It often seems like we are living through an apocalypse. Climate change and global warming make (...)
This is just the beginning for Cobi’s “Island in my Mind.” I’m not entirely sure what’s next, but I have some ideas of where this deeply emotional blues-pop epic could be headed. A. A big remix. Like huge. Someone like Kygo (...)
Maxime gets autumnal on "Empty," an understated indie banger for dancing beneath changing leaves. Musically, "Empty" is all good times - smooth, jazzy basslines; funky guitars; and psychedelic, disorienting keyboards, which is all the more impressive (...)
I want to say that CamelPhat has been quietly cooking up the hottest tunes in dance music, but that’s a blatant lie and we all know it. After a ubiquitous single like 2017’s “Cola” and a Grammy nomination to boot for the (...)
