"Kinda Bonkers" - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ikl16iLeHIY

While I didn't outright despise 'Painitng With', which seems to be the case for a lot of people, it was quite underwhelming. It did have it's highlights though, and this track matches in quality to those highlights. It carries the characteristics of most great recent AnCo songs: manages to stay catchy and smile-inducing while bringing some odd instrumental elements into the mix to keep things interesting. Also no hocketing. Thank you.

Shawn Wasabi - "Spicy Boyfriend" - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NzGGL0VpKUI

Yes, it's the viral video guy. However, in addition to being a joy to watch how the song came to be, the song itself is still a cute, bubbly electronic track with an equally sweet hook. I've always enjoyed people take sampling to a whole new level, and Shawn Wasabi definitely falls into that group. Come out with an album pls
3Thundercat
Drunk


"Friend Zone" - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FqE_H1A-8B4

The lyrics may be as facepalm-inducing as the title indicates and I did end up coming out of 'Drunk' not entirely satisfied, but DAMN that instrumental. I love a great synthfunk beat, and Mono/Poly sure as hell delivers. It's a groove and a half man.
4Richard Edwards
Lemon Cotton Candy Sunset


"Lil Dead Eye-d" - https://youtu.be/ycp2P8rViac

An incredibly beautiful, melodic folk ballad with some country undertones (maybe? Boney help pls) that touches at my heart. Also the producer on this track also co-produced Elliott Smith's final four record, so it's bound to sound great (it does).

'Lemon Cotton Candy Sunset' is out March 31

"Infinite Wave" - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_nx8c1i8OF8

Great use of chopped vocal samples on this track, especially with it's use in the buildup.
6PWR BTTM
Pageant


"Big Beautiful Day" - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cDn4ZCo0NOU

The lyrics, an big fuck you to thee people who believe they can look down on you simply because of who you are, absolutely make this track. The chorus not makes this point clear in the best way possible. This is the first song I've heard from this group and I'm already incredibly excited to hear much more from them, especially this new record.

'Pageant' is out May 12!

Off The Radar


"Toy" - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aiNgT2r4YKs

For people who are looking for foreign artists to get into, this Israeli producer is going to be worth keeping an eye on. This track's instrumental is crazy, super off-kilter. The lead vocals, at times, are a bit grating, but they aren't that bothersome to the point that they ruin the other crazy good things happening in this song.

'Off The Radar' is out June 2

"Lost In My Mind"

*No youtube/soundcloud link, it's on streaming services tho*

Just based off of the leading vocal melody I knew I'd be in for a treat. Over a spacey instrumental comes a melody that feels extremely inspired by Eastern music. The vocals continue through the song to carry quite a bit emotion. Sparks eventually begin to fly as the instrumental slowly evolves to involves some bold piano chords and some wonderful organic percussion. I remember I forgot to check this duo's debut a few years back, and now I definitely regret doing so.

I'm Not Your Man


"Boyfriend" - https://youtu.be/FyVBFCmTuUM

The lyrics are probably the most interesting thing about this track. I'm not 100% sure, but I'm pretty sure it's sung from the perspective of a girl talking to the boyfriend whose girlfriend she's dating? Not quite sure, but either was, I really enjoyed them. "I held his girl in my hands (I know he doesn't mind)
She likes it 'cause they're softer than a man's (I like to moisturise)" are especially golden. I have a hunch that this is part of some kind of concept record? Maybe, maybe not. Great single either way!

'I'm Not Your Man' is out June 2!

Perera Elsewhere - "Something's Up" - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hIGjHiF29SQ

"Something's Up" is quite the subtle track. The chorus is far from explosive, there's no hard hitting beats, and the vocal performance isn't going to blow someone away with it's power. However, this doesn't stop it from having a super slick hook, a kind of spacey instrumental with some great synth tones, and a vocal performance that balances sultriness, soulful, and sinister.

No specific date, but her sophomore record is on the way

"Not Today Satan" - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4B4g7Au0DYk

It's usually pretty hard for me to get into a lot of the dreamy, reverb-heavy indie shit coming out recently, but there's just something special about this one. The synths feel so warm, the sweet guitar riff going off modestly in the background is a surprising earworm, and when the chorus comes in...oh man.

I've heard 'IMAGINATIONS' is coming out May 26, but there's no cover art and the release date has been changed quite a bit, so I'm not 100% sure.

Blond Ambition - "Stupid Boy/Girl" - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hd5JxBluDQ0

I just gotta say, I am ALL over this chorus. It glides in so smoothly, and the melody is an absolute treat. This just an overall great pop song.

'Slow All Over' is out May 19!

Halo Maud - "Du pouvoir" - https://youtu.be/4SzwkUU5oMA

Hello French psych pop! The vocals on here are irresistibly sweet, doesn't matter that I don't know what she's saying. The guitar solo on the bridge is a bit...odd, but other than that the songwriting is strong enough to break any language barrier.

'Du Pouvoir EP' is out March 24!

Each Moment A Diamond


"Garden Piano" - https://soundcloud.com/rolandtings/garden-piano

As long as you don't mind your dance music sounding a bit bleepy-bloopy, there's a lot to dig on this cut; super colorful production and some decent progression lead to a fun track off a now released EP that I'm hyped to give some spins.

'Each Moment A Diamond' is out now!

Complètement fou


"Ici & Maintenant (Here & Now)" - https://youtu.be/DMeyvg1M52k

More French pop!!! But unlike Halo Maud, this track is super synthetic and super quirky. I honestly thought this was something related to PC Music with the single's art resembling the aesthetic and the unexpectedly shiny keys. But while it's not from that camp, this is still a silly, bouncy pop song with some incredibly fun, creative production.

No official date, but an album is in consideration

"Piel" - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t1QSgdMPI5g

"Anoche" - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1YW94Psk0Jg (I saw ass cheek, imm call is NSFW)

I wasn't too crazy about 'Mutant', it was too odd for me honestly, but this new direction has me intrigued. While his previous material was instrumental, these new track are almost the exact opposite. Alejandro Ghersi is providing his somber vocals to some instrumental that are eerie, haunting instrumentals. These songs are not catchy, they are not pleasant, they will tingle your spine. I'm interested to see how this album turns out.

'Arca' is out April 7!

Relaxer


"3WW" - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bDUUOt30TGA

This may not be the case for many, but the subtle, slow-moving direction Alt-J took on 'This Is All Yours' was one I was quite fond of, even though I could see it's flaws in some places. This new track is equally subtle, the evolution is pulled off wonderfully. "3WW" is a beauty of a track that I listened to again and again when it first came out and I can't wait to hear it with the rest of the album.

'Relaxer' is out June 9!

Goths


"Andrew Eldritch is Moving Back To Leeds" - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KYGyC-kF06w

Gonna let out an embarrassing secret: I've never listened to The Mountain Goats. However, this was a pleasant first experience. The instrumental and vocal performance from John Darnielle are incredibly peppy and a fun contrast to the lyrics. A baroque pop-ish singer-songwriter album all about goth culture is definitely not something I'd expected to ever hear, let alone anticipate, but here we are.

'Goths' is out May 19!
