Certain moments vibe much harder than others. In other words, another curveball from Clairo, and undoubtedly not the last, either. This single smashes so hard, I want it to come on every time I step out on a rooftop. I was a philosophy major. Dystopian, but make it disco. I am still longing and seeking something more. Who I am is not a place at which I can arrive. On Fever , Megan Thee Stallion bounces between freaky and greedy, rapping about doing hood-rat shit with her friends, going to Pappadeaux real ones know , and ignoring every man until they start talking about having sex with her.
Lot to unpack here, so pull up a chair. Maluma ft. The song combines the infectious energy that has catapulted both Ozuna and Maluma to the global stage over the past year. Where I pulled that comparison from goes beyond my own understanding, but I said what I said! Summer is right around the corner and this album will have been worth the wait whenever the Canadian trio is ready to share it with us. The ability to connect with a live audience is what distinguishes great from good performers.
Plucked from her retail gig after a stint playing on the streets of Byron Bay made her an overnight sensation , Tones and I delivered her second single earlier this week. Not exactly a cheery sentiment but an indie bop for fans of the Cranberries and, naturally, the Pogues. The D. Ari knows what she wants, and just wants you to stay a little longer. Fuckboys are everywhere. Us girls can be fuckboys too. In fact, many of us wear the badge proudly. The LA-based New Yorker is using her platform for great things: body positivity, queer visibility, humor!
The first album Lee produced after recovering from the incredibly rare brain disease Moyamoya, Lune Rouge is a compilation of melancholic vocals lifted by frenetic beats. In the months following her surgery, Lee experienced the temporary derailment of her music career. Lo-fi, high impact. Once again, Crumb drenches us with another psych-jazz bomb that melts your mind into a puddle of mush. Is anyone else craving the gentle embrace of summertime sadness paired with the warmth of sunshine, or is that just me?
Her breakout album Goddess is full of gut-wrenching lines coated with syrupy vocals. If your eyes have not been blessed by this clip yet, please behold 4-year-old Zahara Noel turning all the way up to this song. I did not care about this song before I watched this child do her thing to it. Bop goes my heart! What exactly are Bleached cooking up with their new album? Kindness ft. Is there a more millennial sentiment than flat-out blanket refusal? I, too, would prefer to keep things minimal in my adult life — why make things complicated for no reason?
Also, who even likes going to the club past the age of 22? Mmm, whatcha say … Even without the memes that have reverberated through cyberspace since its fateful sync on The O. Color me intrigued. Lizzo gets a lot of praise and, suddenly, now more and more flak for her very specific branding of self-love.
For Lizzo, loving herself is what keeps her alive and fulfilled.
Lyrics | Amanda Anne Platt & The Honeycutters
Vulnerability has never sounded so powerful, I am shaken to the fucking core. Truly worth the wait. So rarely do artists let us see their raw emotions in real time, when the wounds are still fresh, exposed, and hemorrhaging. Neither version is superior to the other. It sounds more like a stripped-down New Order disco banger than it does any of her prior influences or musical bedfellows. Via an irresistible mid-song breakdown, Hackman makes way for a multilayered vocal on the final chorus and some deeply satisfying guitar shredding. Her state of confusion and bewilderment in the lyrics creates a sense of giving zero fucks about taking risks for the future.
Our parents pass on their genes to us, and in turn, their peculiarities. With her lullaby vocals and introspective musings, Dacus tells her own tale while transporting the listener to their own memories. She delivers her lyrics slowly, purposefully, over simple guitar harmonies. Of all the wonderful hip-hop and indie-rock acts to have come out of Philadelphia in the last few years, Mannequin Pussy which falls under the indie-rock category is one of the most tragically underappreciated. We were all thinking, Who does this guy think he is?
I thought that the peach would have peaked by now with Call Me by Your Name running its course and all, but it still seems to be in its prime. A brand-new signing to Columbia in the U. Delicate and self-assured. Ives crafts poptronic music with an indie flare from her bedroom in Queens. Brooklyn-born Ives is emblematic of a new kind of triple threat: a female artist who writes, sings, and produces her own tracks. Music production is a historically male-dominated industry. There is an addictive eclecticism to her sound. Unsurprisingly, she quotes a range of influence, from M.
Hit play and coast. Madonna ft. You wonder what motivates Madonna after a bout of recently less-than-desirably-met LPs. In the s, she was riding the electro-clash trend. Mark Ronson, creative companion to the likes of megastars like Miley Cyrus and Bruno Mars, is no sidekick. Though his collaborators often receive more notoriety from their vocals, Ronson is paramount in the production world. Ronson has been teasing hits from his fifth studio album all year, but his collaboration with underground bedroom-pop sensation Lykke Li feels different. It leans into discotheque and away from pop tropes.
The sparse beat creates maximum feels. Paak ft. Paak has gifted us a new catchphrase. The California native made waves this week, from Indio to the internet. Last Friday, he dropped his latest album, Ventura , before taking the main stage at Coachella to play one of the coveted dusk sets. Paak released Oxnard , an album that polarized fans and critics alike. Over a high-energy beat,.
Paak incorporates a seductive playfulness into the lyrics. Paak is far from reaching his peak. A lot of what this song does with voice hits me right: the Kate Bush—style layered vibrato; the corroded, spoken-word backup vocals; that synth patch that mimics human timbre. The bass tone sounds like you could wring a full glass of orange juice out of it. This girl is begging to be featured in all of your hipster music videos. Look for it. Lungbutter weighs down their noise rock with the sense that time is running out, that they could be cut off at any second.
Once again, Steve Lacy just gets it. Now, give us the debut album! When you think of original, witty, relatable, consistently on-point songwriters of the past decade, the Perth-dwelling Barnett is the first that springs to mind. Is anyone else on the kind of run Uzi is right now?
Kaytranada ft. Jazzy psycho-pop is exactly what the doctor ordered for me this week when I was feeling low and needed a major pick-me-up. Crumb is a Brooklyn-based four-piece band that reminds me of the music that my buds from Boise, Idaho, make — which is meant as a huuuuuge compliment. Their debut album Jinx drops on June 14, and I can only imagine that the other nine tracks are just as promising as this standout single.
Fabulously named Australian punks Amyl and the Sniffers are developing a rampant live reputation with every town they rock in across the globe, particularly following SXSW. Front person Amy Taylor sports a mullet and performs with a dangerous cheek — she has to be seen to be believed. It whispers come hither from the shore. Lil Nas X ft. I was today years old when I became a country-rap-music stan. TikTok savant Lil Nas collaborated with our old friend Robby Ray Stewart to make the best country-rap song that ever existed. Forget trap music, I want to stand atop a tractor and belt this remix till the cows come home.
Most importantly, do we think Tish Cyrus actually has a bad Fendi sports bras habit? Ariana Grande is never not working. Even her losses are a Goddamned win. It feels familiar and new, like seeing the sun rise and marveling at the uniqueness of another day. Stevie Nicks. Janet Jackson. Robert Smith. David Byrne.

But whatever. I can be a cynic sometimes. This was really fun! Name me another setting — besides the rare fundraiser — that gives this many legends the opportunity to cross-pollinate and rock out for a few minutes, just because they can! Would relive again. The forthcoming seventh album from Hot Chip is called A Bathful of Ecstasy , which is a great descriptor for how I feel about house music.
House music has taken on a new role for me in the past 18 months. On January 1, , I decided I was going to stop drinking. Since then I have sought healthier avenues for release, ways to access the tips of my neurons and the flush in my cheeks and the flurry in my chest without making a tit of myself. House music can be sustenance, and Hot Chip have become masters of the craft. Khalid ft. Not at all! They must … just be super busy, right? The latest taste from Here Comes the Cowboy is simple and wistful, a single bent guitar line slithering between his voice, brushed drums, and a simple strum.
The lyrical sentiment is all in the title, really — sometimes, things are just simple that way. Her latest single is a delicious slice of dream-pop that sugarcoats the gradual unraveling you go through after a break up. There is a genre-bending quality to their music I find irresistible NPR agrees.
Please forward to my future romantic prospects. Go forth, bury me! Lion Babe is back with an album brimming with slow jamz. Layering sultry vocals over a tribal beat in Solange fashion , vocalist Jillian Hervey and producer Lucas Goodman find their groove with Cosmic Wind , their track album released earlier this week. This song feels like awakening from a winter sojourn to find your sex drive intact yay! Double-time drums and cascading piano notes are the lifeblood of this song. The Earth has moved around the Sun six whole times since Sky Ferreira last put out music.
She was a muse. She was an enigma. She was an actor. She was a recluse.

She was a fantastic pop star. In luminaries like Debbie Harry and David Lynch, she found the greatest of champions. And everybody has anticipated its follow-up since. Her vocal breathes over NIN-style turgid depths before she flies up into a chorus that has more in common with PJ Harvey or Tori Amos than any of her current peers. Deliciously interesting and well worth the wait. Billie Eilish sampled The Office in a song!
It may sound gimmicky, but Eilish weaves it all together perfectly. Just an instantly memorable moment on an album full of them. She has since rebranded as just MARINA, and in removing the character that never fully felt quite right for her, she inevitably finally sounds like herself. For an artist as consistently forward-thinking as Jlin, this Adult Swim one-off almost rings nostalgic.
The candy-crusted synthesizers, hi-hat blasts, and subtle bass drops bring me back to early Skrillex singles, which mined YouTube when YouTube was not yet a repository for fascist propaganda. Of course, Jlin outpaces Skrillex and his cohort of web-native millennial men by a mile in terms of technical dexterity.
