This is our weekly best new tracks article. We cover mostly brand new songs but also some gems from the last few weeks. Follow our playlist if you want to follow on Spotify or if you hate my writing and just want the music:
Dead Battery – L’Orange and Jeremiah Jae
Oh man, this song is piping hot like when you eat that first bite of mom’s beef stew right off the stove son. I’m cheating a little bit because this came out as a single a month ago (haha or 2 months ago tomato potato) but it was too hot not to lead. And a banger is a banger whether or not I caught it when I came out am I right guys? Anyway, damn this is a heater.
Summer Camp – L’Orange and Jeremiah Jae
What can I say, this team from North Carolina and Chicago respectively is something special. Check out our review of the album (it’s a brief review, who has time to read a full review right guys, am I right) but this song is also amazing and is a center piece of one of my favorite albums of the year.
Devil In Her Eye – Mad Gatsby
HOLY SHIT, did these guys come out of nowhere. Singer/Songwriter Brandon Burtis and Producer Alec Berkley burst through the gates on some hot ass on fire ass horses like in Hercules (?). Amazing EP in general, Cult also SLAPS. Love these guys, can’t wait to hear more. Also can’t wait to see the next album art, because this one is SICK.
My Love – Anna of the North
Anna coming in HOT with the album! ‘Playing Games’ was an early entry on the Indie Pong playlist, one of the first entries when the single came out. We’ve been highly anticipating this album and it did NOT disappoint! Bangers throughout and very well constructed. Check it out and make sure not to miss this banger and also Lonely Life (also slaps).
Things I Do – Andy Shauf
I’d like to joke about Andy Shauf being pregame music because it’s low key but in all honesty I would easily pregame to Andy Shauf and probably have an awesome night because this shit is just awesome music as per usual. This is some strutting down the street in khakis music, definitely with some Ray Bans, kind of mood where you would make thumb guns at someone to let them know how hard you were vibing but you would never do that because you have such refined music taste which basically makes you a God.
Reflection – Hana Vu
Is this going to piss my musical theater sister off? I don’t know, she hasn’t answered my text yet. Are you down though? Because I’m fucking down.
P.S. Mulan is the coolest
Pixel Affection – yeule
I-D/Vice said that yeule is a Singapore producer crafting a darkpost-pop dream world. Can I phrase that better? Definitely not. Here’s the article if you’re interested in reading more: https://i-d.vice.com/en_us/article/qvmmkd/yeule-is-the-singapore-producer-crafting-a-dark-post-pop-dream-world
In my opinion anyone can make the right synth and anyone can find the right vocal modulation, but what’s really hard is finding that perfect combination of not only those two things but also lyrics that match. I’m down for some pixel affection get at me.
Sunset by Plane – Anamanaguchi, Caroline Lufkin
Who’s trying to go hard like it’s the end of an anime in a club (?) like a super lit anime where they club at the end to some Nintendocore Bitpop- you down? Because I’m fucking down, spike my hair and call me by my middle name (Akira) because I’m down af.
Worth Noting: We’ve already featured King Princess and Great Grandma and they’re still on the list, both great albums that you should check out! Follow our playlist for weekly updates without having to read!
