While starting a new job, I surprisingly was still able to find some new music to assemble in a list for y’all. Starting off with a bang, we have a really original track from Local Natives that really doens’t sound like anything they have put out before. Very exciting. Moving on to new Angel Olsen as well that swells with such intensity like only she can. “Still gotta wake up and be someone” basically summed up my entire Tuesday, so I have enjoyed this track solely based upon that line…and then some.
Vince Staples has been killing the game, and with the wondrous jams of Clams Casino, one can do no wrong. Hard hitting rhymes killin’ it!
Dâm-Funk? DAMN FUNK! Sounds like something out of the 80’s and there is nothing wrong with that! It’s so infectious and I actually never want it to stop. This new album from this artist will certainly be much anticipated by yours truly!
Jumping towards the end of the list we have two new tracks from newly released albums, one being from Peter Bjorn & John’s “Breakin’ Point” and the next being from veterans Garbage’s “Strange Little Birds”. The former being a glitchy dancy track and the latter being hard, proggy track that can rival any NIN track. These peeps definitely got it dialed in and this album is complete proof of that. I can’t get enough of it.

So, this is going to be a quick post to sum up an all-in-all “chill ass list.”
Starting off strong, we have a playful song from British songstress (living in California) Annabel Jones called “IOU.” It has some of the dry snarkiness like what launched Lily Allen’s career, and she does it flawlessly. Not finding much material from the former, but I hope to see more from her soon! Next up, if you know me, I like to expand the bounds of my playlists into different languages. The song called “Sega” by El Guincho is super glitchy and the words are delivered in a manner that I’m really not used to. The next track spans so many different genres and I have been digging everything I have heard from them. Prince Rama in “Your Life In The End” spans different eras of music with some Passion Pit-y sounds, mixed with some David Bowie synth, and airiness and vocals like Enya. It’s like they had a beautiful, beautiful love child. Two completely different tracks are back to back, from the indie-rap (spoken word?!) “Papillon” to a great new song from Kero Kero Bonito!
I’ll skip a bit of great songs for the sake of time and shine down on a new song from White Lung out of Vancouver, CA. There is something about this, it’s so intense and up-tempo, yet the cadence of the lyrics is slower and very deliberate. It bangs hard and I really can’t get enough!
Let’s finish of on a high night with some straight bangers, we have a new, killer jam from Tokimonsta and a chill, bouncy track from Louis Futon.
Have a wonderful night with this!
