RELEASE RADAR is here to give you the breakdown of the top singles, albums, and videos of the week, so you can head into your weekend with a new list of killer tunes.
Sam Setton | "Gum"
NYC's Sam Setton put a moody spin on otherwise classic R&B in his latest track.
LA's Forever X2 turns it up to 11 with the second single from their forthcoming EP, replete with power chords and expertly executed feedback.
On "Sugarcoat," an otherwise indie rock track, Kid Bloom adds some of their signature flair with quirky beats and backing vocals.
Matt Koelsch (ft. Georgia Feroce) | "All My Friends"
When they first met in LA, Matt Koelsch and Georgia Feroce connected instantly. The result is a heartwarming single about friendship.
Cally Rhodes | "Like I Used To"
Cally Rhodes dances between traditional pop and R&B in her latest single. "'Like I Used To' is about realizing you're no longer in love with your ex and coming to terms with it," she shared.
Deerhunter | Why Hasn't Everything Already Disappeared?
In their catchy, albeit haunting, new record, Deerhunter raises a question about the state of society, (Why hasn't everything already disappeared?) but they don't exactly answer it. In fact, they dodge the question altogether and jump from track to track in an unpredictable pattern, leaving behind even more questions. Great album.
Maggie Rogers | Heard It In A Past Life
The first full length album from Maggie Rogers includes the singles that first thrust her into the spotlight as well as tracks that round out her unique electro-folk sound.
Greensky Bluegrass are no strangers to the trials and tribulations of making a great record. You can hear their experience on each track of their carefully crafted seventh full-length album.
Equal parts dreamy pop and post-punk with an edge, the each track on the The Day's latest album lives and breathes in a constant state of paradox.
