It’s been a while since we’ve had a New Music Friday this jam-packed with must-hear new releases, but sometimes you gotta hunker down and listen to the music.
In our playlist this week, you’re going to find the latest albums from alt country artist Kacey Musgraves, thoughtful rapper Common, indie noise rockers Sleigh Bells, britpop mainstays The Vaccines, Cali punks Face to Face, and UK punks The Stranglers. We’ve also got new EPs from Fang Fang (some of our favorites), Atmosphere and pop-punk group Loose Ends.
If you listen to our list start to finish, on the way to those albums you’ll hear new songs from some familiar names: Cold War Kids, Curtis Harding, Thrice, Lana Del Rey, Angels & Airwaves, Papa Roach, Caroline Romano, Eddie Vedder, Jukebox the Ghost, Big Thief, Billy Talent, Iggy Pop, The Used, Moni Grace and Remi Wolf.
And as we tend to do, we’ve got some fresh blood for the list from artists like Muna, Anna Shoemaker, Allie Dunn, Clockwise on Fire, Mirours, Reb Fountain, Lil Seyi and Dahlia Sleeps.
What are you waiting for? Jump on our New Music Friday playlist and start listening to all of these and plenty more!
