Lana Del Rey, "How to disappear"

Lana Del Rey has always articulated her messages in the same affectualizing way movies tie-up their plots; "How to disappear," moving and melodramatic and utterly self-aware, is maybe her best iteration.

SASAMI, "Take Care"

Frustration simmers quietly alongside the buzzy guitars on SASAMI's "Take Care," a gorgeous ballad that finds power in its self-control.

Lil Tecca, "Amigo"

Lil Tecca scores another hit with the flute-flourished "Amigo."

Floating Points, "Last Bloom"

U.K. electronic artist Floating Points uses phosphorescent plants and planetary iridescence to visually translate the atmospheric "Last Bloom." It fits!

Black Belt Eagle Scout, “You’re Me and I’m You”

Black Belt Eagle Scout closes her new record with a simple yet moving dedication to her mother: "She is the one, the one who loves me."

Anamanaguchi, "Lorem Ipsum"

Delicious, video-game goodness from Anamanaguchi that will also make you emotional.

RICKI, "feelings"

Jamaican singer RICKI (fka RIKI) gets confessional on "feelings," and sounds so casually-cool doing it!

Vagabon, "Water Me Down"

Over a liquid synth beat, Vagabon sings of past mistakes with new perspective and growth; feel your soul getting cleansed.

Kano f. Popcaan, "Can't Hold We Down"

With an assist from Popcaan, grime's top boy Kano reaches confident, joyous heights on the jubilant "Can't Hold We Down."

Halima, "Ford Cardinal"

A laid-back bop from London-via-Lagos singer Halima, which captures the last fading rays of summer in its replayable hook.
