We hope you all enjoyed your long July 4th holiday! Due to the holiday, it seems to be another slower week with music releases, but the new stuff that’s out is certainly worth your time!
Nineties pop-rocker The Wallflowers are back with their first new album in nearly a decade. Leaning more into folk and Americana than previously records, it shows the influence Dylan has picked up from his solo albums and his work on Echo in the Canyon. The singles The Maine have released this year have been some of the best songs of their career, so their latest album should be a treat to listen to. Also out today is the debut album from Irish rock band Inhaler (featuring the son of U2‘s Bono), who have garnered a following and a lot of buzz without the help of that one famous dad.
There’s new singles out this week from a number of acts we love here. UK rocker Sam Fender has his first new songs out from his next release, as does folk-rock artist Strand of Oaks and seminal CA punk band Face to Face. Soul rocker Curtis Harding has his second single from his third album out, and Poorstacy has dropped another song from his next release. Then we’ve got another solo song from the crazy-talented Damon Albarn, the first single from Courtney Barnett‘s next record, a new single from famed songwriter LP, two new tracks from Sufjan Stevens, and the fourth song from Canadian band Arkell‘s next album.
We’ve previously featured tunes from pop-punks Yours Truly, girlfriends, Sophie Powers and Young Culture here, and we’re doing so again with their new releases. And as always, we like to throw some new artists into our new music mix, so we’ve got fresh tunes from The Muslims, Robert Ellis Orrall, Matt Rosa, TK & the Holy Know-Nothings, Luca Firth, American Teeth and Who? What? When? Why? & Werewolves?!
Check out all these tunes and a few more in our New Music Friday Playlist!
