|I'm really excited for what's in store, I can't wait for you all to see. List is digs|
|Future Islands - Cave - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RGrhubD8VDg|
Theatrical, melodramatic indie pop from the band's 4th LP.
Smidley - Fuck This - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w6HI7JJHHEs
Foxing's Conor Murphy's solo effort, probably a better abode for his vocals.
KU - Spring Elevator - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZKnC_x9hbyM
Warm Greek indie rock, bouncy bass and delicious electric organ.
Bonobo - Kerala - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S0Q4gqBUs7c
A barnburner of an electro track, you'll have to watch the video 3 or 4 times to catch everything.
|Roger Waters - Deja Vu|
UPDATE: okay, so this is possibly the most promising and solid any post-Pink Floyd project has been in years. The track is sombre, but emotive. It's moving, but rough. It's slow pace, but rewarding. Roger Waters truly comes through on this one.
Is this enough of a description?

DJ Crib Def - All My Girls Are Virgins
the biggest up-and-comer in underground hip-hop unleashes a hot new single about not doing penetration. a must-listen.
|KRS-1 "Hip Hop Speaks from Heaven" - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-j8tKJHZf0g|
deserves to be heard by everyone because he pays tribute to the wrong Beastie Boy on it.
|No Vacation - Yam Yam|
A wonderful slice of surf-influenced indie pop, similar to Mild High Club, Jay Som, Beach House, and the like. While no news of a new album has been released, another single was released back in March, so here's to hoping. Not much else to say, except that I'll definitely be giving this a few spins (and you should to!)
|The National - The System Only Dreams In Total Darkness|
You guys fucking know what's up. Indie Gods return with a slice of something sexy, complete with guitar solo. Yeah, you read that right, an actual fresh guitar solo from The National.
Soulful indie pop with an amazing voice, this is the first single from her debut album coming out later this year.
|Bleachers ~ Everybody Lost Somebody|
Jack Antonoff aka Bleachers returns with his trademark 80's inspired instrumentation, confessional lyrics and incredible knack for larger than life pop-hooks. Inspired by the loss of his sister Everybody Lost Somebody is both moving and incredibly catchy.
HAIM ~ Want You Back
The Haim Sisters tease their upcoming LP with a feel-good, catchy, summery Indie-Pop anthem.
|Really appreciate the submission sent in so far!|
|Arrowhead - Thousand Palms, Sung and Reposed|
Post-hardcore/emo song with a touch of Deafheaven. Very moody and atmospheric track, heavily reliant on the contrast in dynamics and the yelled/screamed vocals. One of the better songs I've heard this year from a band that is relatively unheard of
|Sinkane - U'Huh|
Summery poppy Afrobeat, with a lot of trumpets, a lot of vocals and a lovely optimistic atmosphere.
|Elder - The Falling Veil|
Picks up right where Lore left off, dazzling with an endless sea of proggy riffs and intricate passages. Completely fresh and vibrant, and it flies through 11 minutes in seemingly no time.
|damn ya got me|
|Bearcubs underwaterfall, what James Blake would sound like if he continued the direction of his Eps instead of his last 2 albums and one of the best electronic songs of the year|

Also, do you have a link to a non-Spotify stream? Not everybody has Spotify and I want these songs to be available to as many people as possible.
|Updated w/ link.|
|2nd single of the Traveler LP|
Post-Punk meets Emo/Post-Hardcore
Technical alt rock/metal with strong vocals - for fans of Deftones, Thrice, Agent Fresco, and Alter Bridge.
|Alright, turns out I left this open much longer than initially planned, so I think now would be a good time to finish up. Thanks to everyone who submitted, and what I have planned will probably be out in a couple days!|
