Lana Del Rey, "Venice Bitch"
As Lana said herself, it's the end of summer; drive around for 10 minutes and lose yourself in electric guitar and her lovely melancholia.
Yaeji, "One More"
Another pulsating club banger of smokey house rhythms and half-whispered vocals by Yaeji. I wanna rave until four in the morning to this.
Young Thug ft. Elton John, "High"
Listening to Young Thug and Elton John both triumphantly sing "I'm a rocket man" brings an endorphin rush of emotions to the heart, and a tear to my eye.
Emtee ft. S’Villa & Snymaan, “Abantu”
Emtee is shepherding South African trap to the rest of the world. "Abantu," his latest single with S'Villa and Snymaan has a hook that runs over itself multiple times. It's pretty crazy and it's something I want more to hear more of.
Molly Burch, "To The Boys"
When Molly Burch sings, in her slightly exaggerated vocal, "This is my voice," it is hard to tell if she's serious or a little jokey. But her peculiar brand of soft rock, and this song's message, makes me not care because it's so good.
Dijon, "Nico's Red Truck"
Dijon's special brand of Americana is warm, dripping globs of time-softened imagery that you'll want to submerge yourself in. His newest, more westward-facing single "Nico's Red Truck" is no exception.
Marie Davidson, "Work It"
Marie Davidson's maniacally brilliant experimental club track "Work It" is a late capitalism banger. "Work to be a winner!"
Bhad Bhabie ft. Lil Baby, "Geek'd"
What can I say — the song is good!! And the Baby x 2 combo works well here.
