It’s that time again! We are back with New Music Weekly, and oh man, what a lineup we have for you! We’ve got music spanning all genres, moods, and we know you’re going to find something you love! Let’s get into it!
Carolyn Hunter – Lovelight
Stream Lovelight here!
What an ethereal body of work. Each song on this EP makes you feel like you’ve been transported to an all-new musical realm. We’ve listened through Lovelight multiple times at this point, and we just keep coming back to ‘Silver Moons.’ Carolyn sounds so beautiful on this soft, melancholy track.
Catterina – ‘Waiting’
Stream ‘Waiting’ here!
Sad girl winter is here and it’s in full swing! Catterina is giving us the ultimate post-breakup song to cry to in the shower with ‘Waiting.’ Accompanied by the most beautiful vocals, the acoustic-driven track is going to be on repeat around here!
Jason Boland and The Stragglers – The Light Saw Me
Stream The Light Saw Me here!
Boy, do we have a treat for you this New Music Weekly! Jason Boland & The Stragglers have put out their brand new album The Light Saw Me, which is a concept album based around the idea of alien life. The album tells the story of a Texas cowboy, abducted by aliens in the 1980s, and then later dropped in 1990s Texas. We know, our minds are blown too!
Pepper Lewis – She Told Me To Sing My Heart Out
Stream She Told Me To Sing My Heart Out here!
Listen, we’re here this New Music Weekly to tell you what we’ve known for a while now, Pepper Lewis is the moment! You’re about to see this pop star explode, so you’re going to want to join us onboard the Pepper Lewis train now! Her newest EP is all the proof you need that we couldn’t be more correct about where we see her career headed. Our favorite track is ‘Same Stuff.’
Actrese – ‘It Might Be About You’
Stream ‘It Might Be About You’ here!
Alt-pop is taking over the world. It’s that simple. Every day we’re seeing more and more artists leap into this beautiful, vast genre. With that being said, allow us to introduce our newest alt-pop obsession, ‘It Might Be About You’ by Actrese! Some of our favorite vocals on a track of the year, easily.
Morgen – Unaccompanied Minor
Stream Unaccompanied Minor here!
We’ve got a debut EP this New Music Weekly!!! You guys know how we feel about debut projects! We’ve got to support! Anyone who’s gone through, or is currently going through the angst, confusion, and pitfalls of being a teenager, is going to connect in some way with Unaccompanied Minor. This EP is pure excellence, with ‘Fine By Me’ being our stand-out track.
Pile of Love – Pile of Love
Stream Pile of Love here!
Come on!! When you get some of the best musicians from bands we love, like The Story So Far and State Champs, all in one supergroup, we’re going to be obsessed! Just getting one song would have been enough, but we got an entire record! Pile of Love is chalked full of nostalgia and feels like a 90s pop-punk, rock dream. ‘Like I’m Stoned’ remains our favorite track no matter how many times we listen, it’s that good.
Dempsey Hope – i hate rollercoasters
Stream i hate rollercoasters here!
First off, what a genius name for a record all about the ups and downs of Dempsey’s life this far. We’ve had Dempsey Hope on our radar for months and months, and let’s face it, we can’t get enough of his music! Everything about this project leads us to believe we’re looking at the next big thing in music. If you need further convincing, listen to ‘16 again’ on a loop.
Valley – Live at Capitol Studios
Stream Live at Capitol Studios here!
Okay, listen, if there is a live album, we’re listening to it! It just so happens Valley is one of our absolute favorite groups, and ‘Like 1999’ is an all-time favorite track! So we were well fed with Valley – Live At Capitol Studios. Hearing this live record further drills it in that Valley is on a level all of their own.
Alison Wonderland – ‘F*ck U Love U’
Stream ‘F*ck U Love U’ here!
Alison Wonderland is an artist straight out of a dreamland. With every song, she proves what a multi-faceted artist she is. ‘F*ck U Love U’ marks what we would consider to be the best vocals we’ve heard yet from Alison!
Happiest Season Soundtrack Deluxe Edition
Stream Happiest Season Soundtrack Deluxe Edition here!
Happiest Season was easily our favorite holiday movie last year, its no wonder we are beyond stoked for the deluxe version of the soundtrack! When you get artists like Jake Wesley Rogers and Cyndi Lauper jumping on, you know it means business. We will have this soundtrack on repeat long after Christmas.
SAINT PHNX & Jasmine Thompson – ‘Happy Place’
Stream ‘Happy Place’ here!
We have been in love with ‘Happy Place’ since it’s release, the addition of the incredible Jasmine Thompson has only amplified that! We are going to need an entire collaboration EP from these artists immediately!!!
