So it’s Friday the 13th, and it certainly hasn’t been a lucky week for most of America. Since it sounds like most of us are going to be quarantining ourselves for the next undisclosed period of time…I guess might as well use the time to listen to a lot of music?
In all seriousness, this is a hard time for so many acts out there who rely on touring to pay the bills, and the fear over this pandemic is causing people to stay home, or entire shows and festivals to be canceled, so please do whatever you can to help and support the musical acts you love!
For now, you can follow our playlist below to listen to a whole lot of good stuff. There’s new albums from alternative rock acts Grouplove, The Districts and Peter Bjorn and John, as well as Los Angeles retro rocker Lauren Ruth Ward.
The Killers dropped the first single from their upcoming new album, which is fantastic. Some other notable releases this week are new ones from Damien Rice, Phantom Planet, Machine Gun Kelly, Sharon Van Etten, Fitness, Jr Jr and previous Check This artist The New Respects.
Stream all of these and more below. Stay safe and healthy out there!
