Happy Post-Valentine’s Day! It’s an Americana kind of Friday, as we’re diving into new albums from troubadours Ryan Bingham, Hayes Carll and Robert Ellis, who all bring their own style and spirit to the rootsy genre.
For those of you needing some more high energy rock for your weekend, we recommend the new albums from NorCal band SWMRS, or Swedish punks Millencolin. If you happen to want some straight forward pop, then you can check out Avril Lavigne‘s latest record.
One of the hottest songs to drop this week is a collaboration between British punk Yungblud, his girlfriend Halsey, and drummer extraordinaire Travis Barker. Expect this one to shoot up the charts.
Some other notable drops are new ones from John Legend, Canadian punks Alexisonfire, pop savant Rex Orange County, California rockers The Regrettes, songbird Jenny Lewis, and indie band Wye Oak.
