Ariana Grande, "needy"

Ariana admits to being needy, and we are all the more empowered for it.

BbyMutha f. Swerzie, "Heavy Metal"


Feels deliciously subversive when BbyMutha calls herself a rockstar, and says that money makes her cock hard.

Marina, "Handmade Heaven"

MARINA dropped the diamonds, and resurfaced with a romantic, and nostalgia-stained epiphany on the beauty of re-creation.

Buddy f. 03 Greedo, "Cubicle"

Buddy and 03 Greedo ascend to boss level and, for the first time ever, make a cubicle something to be desired.

Charly Bliss, "Capacity"

Perhaps better than Charly Bliss's irresistible, powerful '80s pop production are the compassionate lyrics that urge self-prioritization over everything.

Dijon, "Cannonball"

Dijon bursts open to his raw, orange-glowing core on "Cannonball."

Show Me The Body, "Camp Orchestra"

Mesmerizing banjo blends into dazzling noise on Show Me The Body's newest, "Camp Orchestra."

Black Dresses, "DEATH/BAD GIRL"

The world is an antagonistic place, but the healing power of Black Dresses's distorted noise-pop is radiant on "DEATH/BAD GIRL."

default genders f. beth sawlts, "sophie (emphasis mine)"

Canadian-American electronic artist James Brooks delivers multilayered, glistening pop, and "sophie" is a feast for the ears.

Weyes Blood, "Everyday"

Come for the off-putting ease of Weyes Blood's soft rock, stay for her incredibly weird interpretation of classic Hollywood horror in the accompanying music video.
