Plus new music from Aloud, Brooke Moriber, Pet Envy and more.
We're sending you into the weekend with a playlist full of dance-worthy pop.
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. 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.
Aloud | "Son of the Dharma"
L.A. music veterans, Aloud, are back with another soulful single:"Son of the Dharma." It isn't quite country, and it isn't quite rock — it's that difficult-to-master combination of the two.
Brooke Moriber | "Cry Like A Girl"
Powerhouse country-pop musician Brooke Moriber's latest single nods to third wave feminism, and showcases her Broadway- worthy vocals.
Evangelia & Sleeping Lion | "Windowseat"
Evangelia and Sleeping Lion are a match made in musical heaven. According to Sleeping Lion's Nate Flaks the electro-pop track describes, "the disquieting feeling of returning home and facing the uncomfortable familiarities that come with it."
Pet Envy | Middleman
PET ENVY ★ MIDDLEMAN www.youtube.com
The video for Pet Envy's eerie single "Middleman" puts a sinister spin on how artists navigate the music business. "The middleman wears many different faces in the music industry, which is why we have given everyone paper bag heads in the video," the band said.
Proper Einstein | Light Bulbs
Proper Einstein - Light Bulbs [Official Video] www.youtube.com
"Light Bulbs" is Georgia native Proper Einstein's first alternative rock single. The video, shot in Statesboro, Georgia, premiered last month on MTV.
Melodime | If You Want, Then I Do
Melodime - If You Will, Then I Do www.youtube.com
Melodime's tender video tells a heartwarming story, full of the real life trials and tribulations that come with falling in love.
Coyote Choir | Vol. 1
The members of Coyote Choir first bonded over a shared case of "musical burnout," but you'd never guess it while listening to their heartfelt and carefully crafted debut album.
Bets | Future Color
To categorize Bets as simply pop would be a gross understatement. Each track, while pop in nature, incorporates elements characteristic of indie rock and synth-pop, creating a spectacle you won't want to miss.
NEAVV | Fall Hard. Get Sad.
Synth-pop queen NEAVV is keeping it real on her infectious debut album. "I FALL HARD. I FUCK UP. I GET SAD. I WASN'T ALWAYS THIS COOL," she laments
Allie Delyanis is an award-winning and losing freelance journalist based in New York City. She likes bands, books, breakfast food, and would love to be David Sedaris when she grows up. You can find more of her work on www.delyanis.com.

Meowth is best cat.
Going into Pokemon Sword and Shield, I was unimpressed with the new starter Pokemon.
Meh.The Pokemon Company
I normally gravitate towards fire-type starters, but Cinderace was a little too humanoid-rabbit-wearing-pants for my tastes. Inteleon was just "lol no." Rillaboom hit the closest to my usual favorite powerhouse aesthetic (think Charizard, Blaziken, and Incineroar), but something about him didn't quite feel right (or maybe I just don't connect with grass types?).
