Hellllloooooo here we go again. Best new songs, from the last two playlist updates since I was lazy/busy and didn’t do last week’s. Here’s the playlist, follow for weekly updates and follow along as you read if you’d like!
I’m just gonna come smouldering hot out of the gates and talk about this new Mariah Carey/Ms. Lauryn Hill song. Like whaaaaaaat? Iconic artists release new music all the time but what business do these all timers have releasing a song in 2020 that goes THIS hard?
‘Save The Day’ – Mariah Carey, Ms. Lauryn Hill
Unbelievable. While we ride out the entirety of this song, I know this is off brand but did anyone watch the Rockets OKC game 7 tonight? What a trash game. Underwhelming. Should have just Indie Pong’d instead.
‘BRITNEY BITCH’ – BLACKSTARKIDS
Our faves BLACKSTARKIDS are at it again with a very on brand ‘BRITNEY BITCH’. You can check them out in our best songs of the first half of the year post I did or in this interview we did with them earlier this year. Another banger, not surprised. BSK is on a rocketship on their way to the moon.
‘Renegade Breakdown’ – Marie Davidson, L’Œil Nu
This song is insane. I absolutely love it. I’m a big Marie Davidson fan and was bummed when she decided to retire (but understood as it was pretty much the most relatable reasoning I’d ever heard) and then un-bummed when she unretired shortly thereafter with new projects such as an Essaie Pas release. If you dig this check out this banger from our Best of the Decade List and the rest of the Marie Davidson catalog as well.
‘Grasshopper’ – Tkay Maidza
Has anyone come into a song hotter than this? This Tkay Maidza EP is just something special. Zimbabwean-born Australian Tkay goes both unbelievably hard and unbelievably smooth on this album. As a matter of fact I have literally three of her songs (!) on the playlist
this last week, which I think is a new record? Check out ‘My Flowers‘ and ‘24k‘ on the playlist as well (and Shook from a few weeks more than a few weeks back).
‘Mijo Pt. 1’ – Josh Dominguez
This album is going to fiiiiirrrreeee. What I’ve heard is that the first two singles off of the album are not even the showstoppers on the record, those are coming soon. Which is nuts because this track is DOPE. Josh has grown so much as an artist and you can really tell, production aside, from his newfound mastery of rhythm and cadence.
‘Live In Life – Alice Ivy Remix’ – The Rubens
This song is hot af.
Obviously we love Alice Ivy dating way back, seeing as it’s practically all I talk about. By the way did y’all catch this #content we put together courtesy of Mubi?
‘Escape The Night’ – Jun Kamoda
This is some straight up house heat, and not only that, it’s also by a fellow J man and features some Japanese so obviously I am IN.
‘Live 4ever’ – Magdalena Bay
You know how I know you’re special? Magdalena Bay? Because you’re basically the only pop act that #UnderCoverSadGirl listens to. Jen and I brought UnderCoverSadGirl to a Sigrid show and she absolutely hated it. Just kidding that’s an exaggeration but let’s just say she did not buy any merch. But she loves some Magdalena Bay as do I and they just keep continuing to impress.
‘Screwface’ – They Hate Change
Yeah, this is absolutely the next big thing. These dudes are dope af and their whole EP is awesome. This is the kind of sound we’re always looking for, an innovative take on a familiar genre that leaves you wanting more. Kind of reminds me of one of my favorite sleeper rap tracks of the past decade. Watch out for these guys, they’re on their way up.
‘Fuck Dallas BBQ’ – The New Restaurants
This song is awesome. Vibes. They have an album coming out in a few days, am stoked.
‘Modern Hart’ – Billy Nomates
I really just love this one. You know me, I don’t like to overexplain music. This just has it, ya know?
‘Gateway’ – MUEX
Chicago based (ayooo) Muex is the move.
‘Wild Faith’ – Jerome Blazé
This album is gorgeous y’all!
Haha sorry as you can see by this point in the blog we’re cutting right to the point. Who likes to read, anyway?
‘Surfer Guy’ – Lullabies
Time to mellow out after all of these piping hot tracks.
And I’ll leave you with one final one.
