Noga Erez

Noga Erez, musician and producer from Tel Aviv, gives us this fresh song “Views”.

For this futuristic hip-hop track she enlisted her partner Ori Rousso and singer-rapper, Reo Cragun.

“Views”

Chromatics

Chromatics shared a new song “Teacher”.

It was to appear on the 2014 album Dear Tommy that was never released.

The song sounds so retro, and so good.

“Teacher”

CocoRosie

CocoRosie is the duo Bianca “Coco” and Sierra “Rosie” Casady.

Born in the U.S. they united in Paris as a musical entity performing throughout the continent.

By combing different musical styles their sound is difficult to categorize. Some call it Freak Folk. Put the Shine On is their 7th album which includes the song “Burning Down the House” (not the Talking Heads song).  

      “Burning Down the House”

Alison Mosshart

Alison Mosshart, lead singer of The Kills and the supergroup The Dead Weather, has just delivered a song under her own name.

“Rise” portends an exciting solo career.

“Rise”

Fiona Apple

It’s difficult to describe the brilliance of Fiona Apple’s new album as she defies musical conventions.

Fetch the Bolt Cutters is a paean to feminist power in all of its idiosyncrasies and nuances. Her voice, from whisper to a scream, with found percussion and zigzagging song structures, is mesmerizing.

This album deserves a complete listen so it is problematic to select one representative song; therefore, I’ll give you 2 to intrigue: the title track “Fetch the Bolt Cutters” and “Under the Table”.   

“Fetch the Bolt Cutters”

“Under the Table”

Austra

Austra is a band but the only permanent member is singer/songwriter Katie Stelmanis.

It’s been 3 years since the last album. Expect Hirudin on May Day.

The song “Anywayz” is an alluring advance.   

“Anywayz”

Tara MacLean & Catherine MacLellan

Two exquisite singer/songwriters, Tara MacLean and her friend Catherine MacLellan, gathered together on Prince Edward Island in the Canadian northeast to record this beautiful song to guide us through the pandemic.

“This Storm”  

mxmtoon

mxmtoon, also known as Maia, has dropped a new song.

This teenage singer/songwriter/ukulele player from Oakland is a charm.

“Prom Dress” is from last year’s debut, the masquerade, and “Fever Dream”, her latest.    

“Prom Dress”

“Fever Dream”

U.S. Girls

U.S. Girls is the brainchild of Meghan Remy.

Her 7th album, Heavy Light, is a pop stunner.

Here are two: “4 American Dollars” and “Overtime”.

“4 American Dollars”

“Overtime”

Benjamin Gibbard

One of the first of no doubt many quarantine songs to come.

Benjamin Gibbard, frontman for Death Cab for Cutie, sings “Life In Quarantine”.

“Life In Quarantine”

Die Antwoord

Die Antwoord recently dropped House of Zef.

I like “No.1” from this South African hip hop duo.

“No.1”

Powfu

Powfu, a Canadian rapper, released “Death Bed (Coffee For Your Head)” last month, featuring the delightful Beabadoobee, whose song he sampled.

The song has blown up on TikTok with sentimental videos about relationships.  

“Death Bed (Coffee For Your Head)”

Noah Gallagher’s High Flying Birds

Noel Gallagher, the true talent behind the band Oasis, dropped a new EP with his band High Flying Birds.

Blue Moon Rising is the EP title and the song.

“Blue Moon Rising” Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds

KennyHoopla

KennyHoopla is an artist to watch.

This Cleveland to Los Angeles musician has recorded only a few songs but his latest is superb.

Listen here to “how will i rest in peace if i’m buried by a highway?//”.

Coronavirus

Cardi B says it all:

“Coronavirus, this shit is real”
