Not sure about you, but I’ve had a long week and am ready to wind down with some good tunes for the weekend. There’s an interesting mix in today!
SoCal punks Descendents have a new album of older, previously unreleased/recorded songs. This will be a fast, loud affair, so if you need something a little more chill, then the latest album from folk rock legend Jackson Browne, singer-songwriter Joshua Radin or R&B star Leon Bridges, should prove more soothing to your weekend vibes.
Indie rockers The War on Drugs have a new single out that will surely have the crowd at Desert Daze cheering when they play at the fest later this year. Those of you who are fans of early 00’s emo/screamo music will be happy to know that Thrice and Coheed & Cambria have new songs out this week. But, if you want something on the alt. pop side, then you can enjoy the latest singles from Lorde and Big Red Machine. The latest from Young Culture is a more melancholy piece of music, while the Frank Turner-produced single from Sunliner (formerly Jake & the Jellyfish) will make you long for a circle pit.
Another single from the upcoming lost Prince album has dropped, and the first new song from young punks The Linda Lindas since they signed to Epitaph is out now. Coldplay have another new single out, and it’s over ten minutes long! Some other new acts we’ll be spinning this week are La Luz, Indigo De Souza, L.A. Exes, Jackson + Sellers, Sam Johnson and Aoife O’Donovan.
As always, dive into these new tunes and more by following our New Music Friday Playlist!
