It's Fall — We've got sweaters, decorative gourds, and new music on our mind.
RELEASE RADAR is here to give you the breakdown of your top singles, albums, and videos to check out as you head into your weekend. Get ready to jam out with some of our favorite up-and-coming artists, plus celebrate new stuff from those you already know and love.
Illicit Ghost | "Drunk And Alone"
Brooklyn's Illicit Ghost made a stunning debut with her painfully raw track, "Drunk And Alone." The producer, songwriter, and violinist recorded the track in her bedroom, which is fitting for the sad-drunk millennial anthem.
⭐ PREMIERE ⭐ | Nora Keyes & The Rococo Jet | "Dream Party"
Visual artist and musician Nora Keyes delivers a haunting single that transcends genres. The L.A.-based powerhouse presents what we can only conclude is an indie-rock opera, complete with ethereal vocals and delicate instrumentals.
Jaguar Dreams | "Behind Those Clothes"
Jaguar Dreams takes DIY to a new level. Their latest single combines infectious beats and a can-do attitude perfect for an evening on the dance floor.
Mark Edgar Stuart | "Mad At Love"
Mark Edgar Stuart spent years as the go-to bassist for the likes musicians Alvin Youngblood Hart and John Paul Keith before cutting his own record. Our favorite single, "Mad At Love," takes a hard look at love and loss with soul-shattering guitar interludes.
⭐ PREMIERE ⭐ | Memory Keepers | No Distractions
The new video from experimental electronic duo Memory Keepers takes a bold stance on the stigma surrounding pole dancing. The video's star, Zoja Ulesoo, describes it as the ultimate feminist art form. "Sure, it requires grace and sensuality, qualities that have traditionally been relegated to the 'feminine,' she says, "But it also calls for brute strength, a tolerance for physical pain, and a whole lot of confidence--traits we perceive as 'masculine'. Pole pushes the boundaries of what we believe women to be capable of."
⭐ PREMIERE ⭐ | Madison Ryan | Nobody Else
Madison Ryan's latest video has us wishing we were poolside. The Pennsylvania pop sweetheart's debut EP is as infectious as it is emotionally honest.
Great Good Fine OK | Touch
Brooklyn synthpop duo Great Good Fine OK has us nostalgic for the future with their latest video. Modern pop and sultry vocals meet Disney Channel's Zenon: Girl of the 21st Century.
Eoin Glackin | Fires of Innocence
In his debut album, singer-songwriter Eoin Glackin muses on everything from personal demons to our increasingly polarized political climate. Glackin draws on the likes of Beck and Johnny Cash, creating an infectious pop-rock album with an unmistakable twang.
Fine Lines | Contact
The debut album from Fine Lines takes southern rock (think Lynyrd Skynyrd and The Allman Brothers Band) and adds a modern twist--relying not just on vocals, and not just on guitar, but a carefully crafted fusion of the two.

Protest music aside, there is a slew of good underground music out today
An invigorating slew of protest music hit the shelves today.
Detroit-based emcee Tee Grizzley collaborated with Queen Naija and the Detroit Youth Choir to craft a melodic ballad that attempts to open up a dialogue with police. Meanwhile, alt-Jazz pioneer Terrace Martin took a different approach in his collaboration with Denzel Curry, Daylyt, G Perico, and Kamasi Washington, with "Pigs Feet" being more of an angry f*ck you than an attempt at communication.
After a week of silence, Kanye's actions speak louder than words.
After remaining silent for several days, Kanye West has donated $2 million to organizations associated with Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and George Floyd.
He'll also be supporting Black-owned businesses in Chicago and will cover legal expenses for the Arbery and Taylor families. Additionally, he's started a college fund for Floyd's daughter, Gianna.
